QB Issue Resolution:
You need to de-activate all of the payroll tax items that come with QB, as they will not function without a payroll subscription. Instead, you can create your own Payroll Items and add those items to each employee record. For federal and state withholding, you can create the Payroll Item but you will have to enter the amounts on the paychecks manually. You can also use a site like www.PaycheckCity.com to calculate for you.
