WA State Paid Family Leave is still not set up for QBO payroll. There are direction on how to set it up but all the options are not there yet.

For QBO payroll. You have a link on how to set it up but Step 3 does not exist. Please let us know when it is available. It starts Jan.1st. Meaning if your pay period is Dec. 16-31 and you pay on Jan 5th. That Jan 5th check must include the new tax rate for the employees and employers because it is PAID in January and must show up on the 1st Quarterly Report.


Thank you for posting, fabricare.

I'm here to share some information about setting up the Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave.

The Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave will be supported by QuickBooks Online Payroll starting January 1, 2019. It should be 0.4% of the total insurance premium of the employee's gross wages.

I believe that you’ve read the steps in setting this up from the Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave (New Tax 2019) article. Please take note that the steps will not be available until January 1, 2019. This is because we’re still waiting for additional information from the agency about the pay and payroll item.

That's it. Let me know if you are still need further assistance or if you need more help concerning this new tax, by leaving a comment below. I'll be here to help. Have a good day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
