how do I show an Indiana employee living in one county but working in another on his taxes??


Hello there, lisad03

Let’s get the county tax to calculate for your Indiana (IN) employee.

Once you’ve set up the state worked and subject to withholding on your employee’s Payroll Info, the program will automatically calculate the county tax. The State subject to withholding refers to the place where your employee lived. If your employee is working in another state, you’ll need to put it at the State worked. Please see the first screenshot to serve as your visual guide.

If you haven’t set up the specific county tax, you’ll need to create it on the Other tab. This way, the system will deduct this tax on your employee’s paycheck. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu at the top.
  2. Double-click the employee’s name.
  3. Select the Payroll Info tab.
  4. Click the Taxes tab.
  5. Go to the Other tab, then select Add new.
  6. On the Other tax window, select IN-Counties Tax from the drop-down.
  7. Choose Next until you can click Finish.

The second screenshot below will show you the third to sixth steps.

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.
