Question direct labor vs indirect labor

I use QuickBooks Pro to manage my books for a Landsacaping Company.

I am in the middle of reorganizing my Chart of Accounts and I want to break out direct labor and burden (labor that is billed to the job) and indirect labor and burden (salaries for management, sales, supervisors). I have successfully broken out the direct labor and indirect labor. The problem lies with the direct and indirect labor burden (payroll taxes). When I go into the payroll items and try to add another item, say Federal Taxes (this would be assigned to an indirect labor burden account), QuickBooks promptly stops me and tells me that "You don't need to set up any additional Federal Tax payroll items because QuickBooks has already done that for you."

How do I get around this?
