ezPaycheck Troubleshooting: FUTA and SUTA Issue

ezPaycheck payroll software makes it easy to calculate federal and state payroll tax.

Issue #1: You did not check the FUTA and SUTA option on employee settings screen

You can edit the employee tax option to solve this issue.

Issue #2: Wrong FUTA and SUTA Set up

Click the left menu "Company Settings" then click the sub menu "Tax Information" to open the company tax setup screen. You can enter the FUTA and SUTA rate there.

When you add a new paycheck, ezPaycheck payroll software will use this new tax rate to withhold FUTA and SUTA. The change of FUTA or SUTA rate will NOT affect existing paychecks.

Issue #3: The employee' payment exceeds the annual limit

For example: in 2020, the FUTA tax applies to the first $7,000.

Issue #4: Report option

For example: paycheck #1234, pay period 9/16/2020 to 9/30/2020, paycheck date 10/1/2020

If you select "Pay Ending Date" option, this check is the last paycheck of 3rd quarter.

If you select "Pay check date" option, it is the first paycheck of 4th quarter.
