  1. Choose Setup > Clients, click the Payroll Taxes tab, and then click the Edit button.
  2. In the Taxes section, scroll to the specific state grid, and enter a description in the Box 14 column for the applicable state SUI item. Pennsylvania example

  3. Click Enter to save the client record.

The application will now print each employee's year-to-date SUI amount in Box 14 of their Form W-2 using the description you entered for this client.
