Hello:

In GP 2013 SP2, for a Weekly payroll, we show a payroll garnishment for an employee recorded in the Payroll Transaction Inquiry window as $111.08.  But, the Payables Garnishment Detail Report showed an amount of $94.06.

Technically, this $94.06 amount is correct since the garnishment was set of up to be 10% of the employee's wages, which were $940.66.

So, why did Payroll record the amount as $111.08?

Thank you!

John

I figured this out.  The $17.02 difference was due to the fact that GP is also taking 10% of the Taxes Withheld.  This 10% is indeed $17.02.
