I am attempting to add an employee that lives in Washington and my LLC is located in Oregon. Online payroll will not allow me to change their state to WA


Glad to see you here, eric.bosanko.

I can help you with updating your employee's home address in your QuickBooks Online payroll account.

Did you receive an error message while trying to update your employees home address? That will surely help us resolve the issue. 

You can update your employee's home address after paying them for the first time. To do this go to your Employees tab under Profile and update their birth date, email address, or phone number. The home address that you'll set will determine their state income tax.

Make sure that the address contains the employee's physical home address, and not their mailing address. 

Here's how:

  1. Go to your Employees tab.
  2. Click the Employee's name.
  3. Select the pencil icon next to Profile.
  4. Click Done to save. 
You can check this article for more information about changing your employees information: Change employee info.

That should help you update your employee's profile. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else in setting up your employee’s profile, let me know. I'm always glad to help in any way I can.​ Take care and enjoy the weekend.

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.
