Crosse-Over IL Tax Update

July 2017

Illinois has changes to their tax table effective July 1, 2017. The tax rate has changed to 4.95%. The state says that you should begin withholding the new rate as of July 1st. However, they have not published a guide to clarify details that also may affect the withholding formula. So I will continue to monitor what the state publishes for guidelines, but it is prudent to change the percentage immediately. Simply change and save the top line percentage in the table as shown.

You only need to make changes in one company.  Tax Tables are shared among all companies in your system.

Be sure to double-check your state withholding when you calculate your next payroll.  An inadvertent mistake could cause the tables to not function properly.

  1. Choose File Maintenance from the Payroll menu.
  2. Choose Tax Tables from the File Maintenance menu.
  3. Enter the table ID you wish to change (see below).
  4. Press <PgDn> or OK to save each table.
  5. After you save your changes, call up the table again to proof your work.

NOTE: The third line of the table with 1000.00 may be zero in your table. It will not affect anything if you set this line to 1000.00.
