What if I have an employee whose gross wages is over $600,000 and has chosen the Filing Status of Withholding Code C.
Once you have downloaded Payroll Update 21302, a manual calculation of taxes will need to be done if you have an employee(s) whose gross wages are over $600,000 and has selected the Filing Status of Withholding Code C.
What do I have to do to manually calculate the withholding tax:
- For every $10,000 above $600,000, add $150, for a maximum of $1,500 for the tax year.
- Divide the calculated withholding tax by the number of times the employee will be issued paychecks in the tax year.
- Add any Extra Withholding amount requested by your employee to Step 2 (either from the Form CT-W4, line 2, or the amount currently entered in the Extra Withholding field in the employee State tab in QuickBooks).
- Enter the total withholding tax amount in the Extra Withholding field in the employee State tab in QuickBooks.
