Is there an option for that?

    Hi @jndnclean! If you navigate to: Payroll -> Employees -> Tax Details you can edit the tax details for a particular employee. It might be best to check in with your state/province tax laws as well, just so you can confirm if this is correct.

    I have looked at the Tax Details section. I do not see any options specific for unemployment insurance.

    Check your states details, but the majority states do not exempt the owner from unemployment insurance contributions. They are however, usually exempt from workman's compensation insurance.

    Exemption of owner's spouse from unemployment is common but Wave has no way to handle it. I just reverse the amount for my spouse with a journal entry!
