You can just over-ride it in the PAYG tax summary as you're processing the pay cheque.

Hi Lisa - in the Employee edit window - go to the Payroll & Compensation section - select Taxes - then where it says Extra Tax - you can put in an amount there that will be added to the normal tax amount each pay day. 
What if the amount of extra tax varies with each pay period?
My employee has a fixed income from a Super fund, and I adjust the tax payments on their casual wage to allow for this each cycle.

when creating the paycheque - just click in the bottom right window on the PAYG line and edit the amount manually - make sure its a negative number.
Thanks for that Lisa.
