How Can You Resolve Payroll Update Issues?

If you have outdated TD1 amounts even after installing the Latest QuickBooks Payroll Tax Table Updates, then you need to perform the following checks:

  • You need to check if the update is downloaded on or after the tax table effective date. For example, if you downloaded tax table version 118 on June 15, 2023, you won’t see the updated amounts until the tax table becomes effective on July 1, 2023.
  • After June 15, 2023, once you have downloaded the product update containing the new tax tables, the user will need to start a payroll or open and close QB desktop for TD1 amounts to update
  • Have you ever adjusted the TD1 amounts manually at any time in the past or after setting up a new employee? If yes, then, in that case, the new tax table will not override any previously adjusted amounts. And thus, you have to update the TD1 amounts in the future manually.
  • Have you set up any of your employees over the basic TD1 amounts? QB Desktop updates the TD1 amounts on its own only for those employees who have a basic amount for the previous tax tables.
