employees are Agriculture/exempt from FUTA doing payroll it deducts the Fed, box unchecked in employee profile How do I get QB to not deduct that from their paychecks?


Hello there, jeanmbruns

Let’s get the FUTA tax to exempt from your employees’ paychecks.

Just to confirm, did you unchecked the FUTA box after doing payroll? If so, this may be the reason the program is still deducting it on their paychecks.

To help fix this, you can revert the paychecks if you’re still in the process of creating them. This way, it will refresh your payroll and tax information. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu at the top.
  2. Select Payroll Center.
  3. Click Resume Scheduled Payroll.
  4. Right click employee's name that's highlighted in yellow, then click Revert Paycheck.

For more information, here’s a great article you can refer to: How to Save or Revert Pending Paychecks.

If you’ve already created the paychecks, I’d suggest deleting and recreating them. Please first make sure you have all the payroll details before deleting them.

Once done, the payroll tax will not be deducted from your employees’ paychecks, jeanmbruns.

That’s it. I’ll be here to help if you need further assistance. Have a great 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.
