Troubleshoot payroll Update Issues

  • After installing the latest tax table update, if your TD1 amounts are not updated, perform the following checks:
    Checks the tax table effective date, Is it on or after the date. For your better understanding, we share an example, if you downloaded tax table version 108 on June 28, you will not see the updated amounts until the tax table becomes effective July 1, 2018.
  • Once you have downloaded the product update after July 1, 2018, containing the new tax tables, you’ll need to start a payroll or open and close QuickBooks Desktop for the TD1 amounts to update.
  • The new tax table will not override any previously adjusted amounts If you have ever manually updated the TD1 amounts for an employee. Now, you will need to manually update the TD1 amounts going forward.
  • Your employees set up over the basic TD1 amounts? Yes or no
    Because QuickBooks Desktop will automatically update TD1 amounts only for those employees with the basic amounts for the previous tax tables.
