QB Issue Resolution:

The KY surcharge should appear in your Payroll Item List under “Other Tax”.
You need to be sure that that payroll item is added to each Employee Record on the “Other Taxes” tab. In my list it appears a “KY-Surcharge”. That item is tied to the KY unemployment report, so if you set this up properly then the surcharge should be calculated and should appear in the report correctly.
Since the rate is the same for all Employers, there is no need to enter a rate. It is calculated automatically.
