    I am brain boggled. If I purchase the QB Pro Payroll Enhanced 2020 disc, I am paying (at this moment) $500. Without the payroll it is $300. Am I also paying a subscription fee beyond that $200 for the payroll service?

      Hi Lise,

      That is the correct cost for the QuickBooks Pro software. The pricing for payroll will depend on which payroll plan you choose and how many users you have. The monthly plans range from $29 – $109/month plus $2/month per employee. You can learn more about these prices on the QuickBooks website. If you are buying the disc from a reseller rather than Intuit directly, the pricing may vary and you’ll need to read the fine print on that particular deal.

      I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

      Best wishes,

        Hi Lisa, you should consider purchasing from Staples or another retailer for this product and not go through Intuit. Staples offers the Desktop Pro with Payroll Enhanced 1 year subscription. You may have to uninstall your prior version of Quickbooks and reinstall the current year. Well worth the cost savings to me.

          Does Assisted payroll file monthly municipality taxes for workplace and courtesy tax?

          Also, does it do Fed and state unemployment filings?

          Thanks,

            Hi Rozina,

            Thanks for reaching out! The Assisted payroll plan should cover all of your state and federal tax needs, including unemployment. I am uncertain if this service covers monthly municipality taxes or courtesy taxes, so you would need to double-check with QuickBooks directly to be sure.

            Best wishes,

              QuickBooks Assisted payroll does not file municipality taxes for you. For example, I am in Northeast Ohio and am subject to something called a RITA tax for each employee. The RITA tax varies from 2-2.25% depending on the municipality. Under each employee, you can set up the RITA tax so it withdraws from their check each payroll period. Once payroll is run, you can view the total liability.
