I'm in virginia and this week along with my va state tax I have North Carolina tax forms due! don't pay taxes in north carolina! its a glitch help!

It really scares me when glitches like this happen. My to do list is telling me I have South Carolina taxes forms to file even though they are blank. I have never paid taxes in South carolina. Anyone know whats going on?


Hi petitepetinn,

It's possible that one of your employees is set up in North Carolina, that's why QuickBooks is prompting you to pay the tax. You can run the Payroll Summary report to see how the employees are set up.

Here's how:

  1. Click Reports on the upper menu.
  2. Select Employees & Payroll.
  3. Choose Payroll Summary.
  4. Go to the North Carolina tax and double-click the amount to see the list of employees that are set up in NC.
Once done, you can edit the employee's information in QuickBooks Desktop.

Here's how: 
  1. Click Employees menu on the upper part.
  2. Select Employee Center.
  3. Double-click the employee and change the correct information.
  4. Click OK.
Here's an article for the detailed steps: Change State Taxes For An Employee.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'm right here to help you.

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.
