Hi, I am unable to get a specific city to show up for a new employee in his profile to deduct local taxes from his weekly paycheck.

Looking to add his city of residency in his employee profile but it's not showing up to deduct local taxes from his weekly paycheck. Please help.


Hi davemarshall03

You need to set up and provide the necessary information in the Payroll Taxes SetUp and Compliance page, Once done, this will show up the local taxes on the employees profile. Let me show you how. 

  1. Click Workers on the left menu.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Choose an employee.
  4. Under Edit employee details, click the pencil icon beside We'll use conservative estimates for now.
  5. Make sure to provide the necessary information on W4.
  6. Click Tax exemptions to show the available taxes.
  7. Make sure to uncheck the box if you want the employee to be deducted.
  8. Click Done.
Here's an article for information about setting up direct deposit: How to Set Up Payroll Direct Deposit.

Keep in touch if you need anything else. I'd be happy to help.

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.
