Crosse-Over KS Tax Update

July 2017

Kansas has changes to their tax tables effective January 2017. The problem is that they waited until July of 2017 to make the change. So most everyone will owe taxes. Curently the state is recommending that you put in place the tax rates that will be effective for January of 2018. This higher than 2017 rate will then have the effect of 'catching-up' most employees on the tax due by year-end of 2017. It will also make it easier to not have to change the tables again in 2018. So with that in mind, I am outlining how I see the tables you should use immediately that reflect the 2018 rates.

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, so check the figures on the Edit Register prior to printing checks. To add the new tax bracket, move down the table to the line below the 99999999.99 and duplicate the line above with the 8.2 nines followed by the withholding allowance of 2250 in the middle column and hit (enter) to get to the next line below. Then use the (up-arrow) to move back up and edit the amounts on the lines for the brackets. When done, save your table and then call it back up to eyeball the changes.

  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.
