Set Up Basic Payroll with QuickBooks 2012

To set up do-it-yourself payroll, you step through a web-based interview in QuickBooks 2012. To start this interview, choose the Employees→Payroll→Order Payroll Service command. QuickBooks displays the Intuit QuickBooks Payroll Services page.

To set up QuickBooks payroll, you indicate who you want to be paying payroll taxes and filing payroll tax returns: you, Intuit, or your accountant. Based on who you choose, QuickBooks suggests one of its payroll solutions: Enhanced (if you will do the work yourself), Full Service (if you want Intuit to just take care of everything), and Basic (if your accountant will take care of everything for you).

Even though you have three QuickBooks payroll options, here you'll want to use the Basic Payroll option. The Basic Payroll option is truly a do-it-yourself solution. You do the work. You need to understand federal and state payroll tax rules. However, you don’t have to pay much.

To choose the Basic payroll option, click the I Want My Accountant To Pay & File My Payroll Taxes For Me button. Next, when prompted by QuickBooks using a second payroll setup web page, click the Basic Payroll tab and then indicate how many employees you’ll need to prepare payroll for by answering the Do You Have More Than 3 Employees? question.

And then you click the Basic Payroll’s Buy Now button.
