State liability check does not match generated liability forms. Solved.

We are a very small non-profit in California, and have previously used a paid preparer for our payroll. This is the first quarter (2009 Q3) we have handled completely through QuickBooks. We use QB Premier 2009.

When I generate the DE88 payment coupon, it shows an amount almost twice the amount in the generated payroll liability check. The federal forms and checks are accurate.

Please help if you can.

John

Is this an employer paid tax? Shall we assume your DE88 is the correct amount?

You probably have an incorrect rate in whatever Payroll item that represents. To make up the difference (assuming it's employer paid), create the liability check and then click on expenses to add the additional tax due, coded to the appropriate expense account.

Then update your payroll item to the correct rate. You still may have quarter end adjustments. In MN QB never matches the state exactly because of a funky calc the state does and rounding, so there's always an adjustment on the payment

Thank you Lisa. You were right. Turns out that I had not finished the payroll setup, and had not done a current update, so the rates used to calculate the California taxes were completely wrong. I did as you suggested and adjusted the check in the Expenses tab and all is now well.

I am very grateful for your help.
