It depends on how your cuts are out of square. Top to bottom or side to side? If top to bottom, it’s a matter of tweaking your 0 stop on your bevel. Best to have an angle gauge of some sort but can be done by trial and error if you’re patient and methodical. If it’s side to side, it’s a matter of tweaking the 0 setting on your miter gauge.

Another consideration is whether or not your out-of-square cuts are consistent. Is the angle off the same amount in the same direction consistently? If not, it may just be a flimsy miter gauge or a sloppy fit in the miter slot.

How are your rip cuts? Be careful that you don’t heel the fence and cause binding on the back side of the blade. It can cause kickback which can be very dangerous.
