Question: How can I enter New York City taxes?
Answer: New York City uniquely levies an income tax. This is a tax on all income, not just on wages earned in the city.
Because this is an income tax, there is a different mechanism for entering it than the standard local tax.
You do NOT enter a local tax rate on the Wages > "more info" screen.
Instead, you check a box to specify that the New York City tax applies. This checkbox appears several places in the software, including:
Once you check this box, the software will automatically calculate the New York City income tax.
