Hi,

I have a part time employee who earns a decent salary at her main job and earns a much smaller amount working for me.

I would like to deduct the correct amount from her taxes but don't see an obvious way to do it in Quickbooks.

Any help is apppreciated.

It is your responsibility to withhold based on the tax tables. It is the
employee's responsiblity to elect for more federal withholding to be withheld.
To do that have the have the employee complete a W-4 form.

On the W-4 form is a field where she can instruct the employer to deduct an Extra flat rate  per paycheck.   If she does not know how much to deduct, she can look to
see what her top tax bracket is and use that as a guide
http://taxes.about.com/od/Federal-Income-Taxes/fl/Federal-Income-Tax-Rates-for-the-Year-2014.htm.   Take that rate times the gross wage and deduct what QuickBooks
will normally withhold on the gross wage.  Have her round up to the nearest $10 and use enter that flat rate into QuickBooks.


To set this up in QB, edit the employee
nagivate to the payroll information screen (where you set up wages)
click on the taxes button
In the federal there is a field where you put that  PER PAYCHECK amount to
deduct.
