PR Question re: state wages

Posted on by 35

Have an earnings type for life in excess 50K. I have the state income tax deduction on it but it does not increase state wages, only federal. Ideas?

    You say it doesn't update state wages.  Are taxes getting calculated on the amt?

    A deduction must be attached to both a work location and earnings type before it will calculate.  You note that you have the state income tax deduction attached in Earnings type maintenance.  In Deduction Maintenance, verify that the state deduction  is set up as a State type and that the box is not checked for All work locations.  Verify in Work location Maintenance that the state deduction is attached.

    If it is the same state deduction as for regular earnings and regular earnings have been working correctly, one must presume that the deduction is set up and attached appropriately.

    If there is no money left from regular earnings that DO contribute to net pay to take out the state deduction on the Excess 50K earnings that do not contribute to net pay,  it may not be increasing the state wages based upon your version.  I believe that we changed that some time ago but was unable to located when.  It was likely some time in ver 7  so that even if there isn't enough money left to withhold taxes, it still updates the state wages.

    Do you have this state deduction attached to both 50K earnings and Reg earnings?
