Have you subscribed to Qb Payroll subscription?


Do you provide any benefits to employee such as health insurance-pretax and/or post tax, 401K or similar deductions?



Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I subscribed to intuit online payroll. No employee benefits/401ks etc. Just basic federal and state deductions and I need to "plug" in all the correct data for payroll to begin to calculate itself. (and my payroll is due tomorrow) OPPS! Was a little over zealous thinking I could do this....but need to figure it out.

In Online quickbooks - you can go to Employees and than select employee list and select Add and update the employee list with the name and address and their SS#, address, number of allowances, state and other information.


Once the employees are set up, you can go to Paychecks center and create the payroll for the employees. At this time you can create the payroll item that you may not have created.


Once you go through the process let me know if you have any questions.
