How do you add multiple locality payroll withholdings for an employee?


Hi there, shelley,

I'd be glad walking you through adding multiple locality payroll withholdings for your employee.

Local withholding taxes are based on your employee's residence and work location. These taxes are calculated and reported differently, depending on the laws of the particular states where your employee lives and works.

You can set up additional work locations in and outside your primary state work-location.

If your employee works at other locations, follow the steps listed below to add a new address.

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Under Your Company, select Payroll Settings.
  3. Under Business Information, click Work Locations.
  4. Click Add a Work Location.
  5. Enter the new address, then click Save.

To assign an employee to the new location:

  1. Select Workers from the left panel, then Employees.
  2. Click the employee's name.
  3. On the Employment section, select Edit.
  4. From the Work Location drop-down, select the work location added above.
  5. Click OK.

Please check out this article since you're setting up a multiple state in your company: About multistate employment payroll situations..

By following the solution stated above, you can assign a new local withholding tax to your employee. 

Let me know how that works for you by leaving a comment below. I'm here to help if you need further assistance.

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.
