How to add FUTA exempt insurance to a payroll check


Hi bookkeeper,

Thanks for joining the Community. I'm here to help you add the FUTA exempt insurance in QuickBooks Desktop.

You can add the FUTA exempt insurance directly to the employee's profile. By accessing the Payroll Info tab, you'd enter all payroll information associated with the employee.

Let me show you how:

  1. Click on the Employees menu and choose Employee Center.
  2. Double click on the employee's name to edit. 
  3. Select Payroll Info.
  4. Add the FUTA exempt insurance in the Additions, Deductions and Company Contributions section.
  5. Once you're done, click on OK.

Take a look at my screenshots below so you'll know what I'm referring to. Once added, the insurance payroll item will show up on the paycheck when running payroll.

For more information, you can check out this article: Set up a new employee in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.

That should do it. Let me know how this turns out. I'm still here if you need further assistance. Take care.

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.
