OREGON STATE TRANSIT TAX -

AS A REQUIRED PAYROLL DEDUCTION THE TRANSIT TAX SHOULD BE REPORTED ON THE W2 BOX 14 OR THE STATE PORTION OF THE W2.   BUT I AM UNABLE TO GET IT THERE WITHOUT MANUALLY ENTERING IT WITH AN OVERRIDE ON EACH W2.  IS THERE A WAY TO MAKE THE PROGRAM REPORT IT PROPERLY?

Answer

Hello there, numbercrazyss,

I’m here to help ensure that Oregon Statewide Transit Tax is included on the payroll tax item and reported on the W-2 box 14.

First, let’s make sure that your payroll tax table in QuickBooks Desktop is updated. This way, the Oregon Statewide Transit Tax is listed on your employee’s paychecks and reported on the payroll tax forms, including W-2s.

Here’s how to get payroll updates:

  1. Click Employees.
  2. Choose Get Payroll Updates.
  3. Click Download entire payroll update.
  4. Select Update.
  5. Click OK.

Once the tax table is updated, you can verify the payroll item on the employee’s profile. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Choose Employee Center.
  3. Double-click the employee's name.
  4. Go to the Payroll Info tab.
  5. Select the Taxes button.
  6. Go to the Other tab.
  7. Make sure the OR-Statewide Transit Tax Emp is listed. You can set it up if not yet listed by clicking the drop-down arrow.
  8. Click OK.

That will do it. If the steps above don’t work, you can do a liability adjustment. By doing so, it will adjust year to date (YTD) wages, deduction, or addition payroll items, such as Oregon Statewide Transit Tax, for your employee’s paychecks and W-2s. Here’s the article you can refer: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1762814.

Don’t hesitate to add a comment below if you have other concerns about managing your payroll taxes. I’d be glad to help, numbercrazyss. Thank you for choosing QuickBooks Desktop Payroll as your payroll partner!

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.
