Payroll Update: Revised Tax Tables

Intuit has released Payroll Update 21313, with revised tax tables. This email also contains an important reminder about the additional Medicare employee tax for 2013.

It’s important that you receive everything in the Payroll Update so that you will be in compliance with legislation that affects your payroll. For details on the contents of this update, open QuickBooks, go to Employees > Get Payroll Updates, and click on the Payroll Update Info button.

How do I know I have the Payroll Update?

To make sure that you have received the latest update, open QuickBooks and choose Employees > Get Payroll Updates. You should see a message that says, “You are using tax table version: 21313.”

If you do not have version 21313, click Update. Get more detailed download instructions here.

QuickBooks also provides an automatic updates feature for Payroll Updates. To turn it on, choose Help > Update QuickBooks. On the Options tab, select Yes for Automatic Update.

Disk delivery customers: The next disk delivery is not scheduled until September 2013. If you have an internet connection, we strongly recommend that you download this update now. Simply follow these instructions to install the update.

Reminder: Additional Medicare Employee Tax

Beginning January 1, 2013, employers are responsible for withholding an additional 0.9% Medicare tax from an employee’s wages and compensation paid over $200,000 in a calendar year. Get more information about the additional tax on our support website.

A new payroll tax item, Medicare Employee Addl Tax, was added to QuickBooks in the payroll update that was released in December 2012. If you have any employees who are subject to Medicare tax, even if their wages do not exceed $200,000, you should set up the new payroll tax item in QuickBooks.

If you have not yet set up the new item, the Intuit Payroll team has created the Additional Medicare Tax User Guide with instructions to help you with setup.
