Here is an urgent QuickBooks payroll error for Florida users. A new Florida law cut the maximum annual unemployment tax wages to $8,000 per employee per year. Florida computed new unemployment tax rates, in notices sent a few days ago. These changes were effective January 1, so this QuickBooks payroll error made prior QuickBooks payroll tax accruals wrong.
It is, of course, not Intuit's fault that the Florida Legislature acted irresonsibly, by passing a retrocative law. However, it is Intuit's fault the the current QuickBooks desktop payroll tax table does not reflect the new law. I did not yet check this with Intuit online payroll, or call Intuit to find out when they will have a correction, for this QuickBooks tax table payroll error . Therefore, DO NOT FILE your April 30 Florida unemployment tax return until you verify the tax rate and maximum amount.
In accordance with a long standing Florida policy on accelerating receipts, these UCT6 returns say they are due April 1, but that a penalty applies after April 30. That means the due date is April 30.
