Configuration information for this Payroll Tax Update

Due to changes to Federal Income Taxes for 2020, you will need to reconfigure your employees before calculating your next payroll, even if you are not using 2020 W-4s. Please keep this in mind before installing this Tax Update as you will need to reconfigure your employees in order for these Tax Tables to be implemented.

After installing this Tax Update, if you do not see the new fields available in Configure/ Employees, go to Payroll/Calculate Payroll, and start a 2020 payroll. Close out of Calculate Payroll and you should see the fields in Configure/Employees.

If you have multiple employees you can reconfigure a little at a time by saving your changes as you go. However, you will not be able to Calculate Payroll for employees that have not bee reconfigured. You can also OK all of your employees and then go back and reconfigure them when you are able. Please note that when you OK your employees, the filing status will default but the status may not be correct. Please double check the status before you run payroll for those employees.

Below you will see references to 2019 Form W-4. This applies to Form W-4 from previous years as well. If an item below only references 2020 Form W-4, you can leave that box blank if you are using a previous year's form.

In Payroll/Configure/Employees, you will see the following Pay Factors for US FIT :
