Good day, b122036551.

You'll need to change the schedule of the withholding tax if you're referring to the filing and deposit frequency.

To change the schedule, please follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Gear icon and choose Payroll Settings.
  2. Under Taxes, choose Federal Taxes.
  3. Select the Change or add new schedule link.
  4. Set the deposit date. 
  5. Choose OK.

I've attached an article that will provide more information: Prepare Your Clients to Pay and File Payroll Tax.

You can always reach out to our QuickBooks Support Team for further assistance. They'll be able to perform a screen-sharing session with you.

  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online (QBO).
  2. Go 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.
