OPEN SYSTEMS WI PAYROLL TAX UPDATE

April 1, 2014

 

Wisconsin has changes to their tax tables effective for all payrolls paid on or after April 1, 2014. You should manually change the tables outlined below prior to calculating your first payroll in April. Performing this update right after performing Quarter-End Maintenance in Payroll would be an excellent time. You may ignore these changes if you do not have employees in Wisconsin.

 

You only need to make these changes in one company. Tax tables are shared between companies.

 

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.

4. Enter the appropriate table data found below. (SEE NOTES BELOW)

5. Press <PgDn> to save each table.

 

NOTES:

You will be removing one of the brackets (line) to these tables by typing over the existing numbers. The net tax affect of these changes should be a very small decrease in tax withholding.

The last line in each table starts with eight 9s then .99 in the first column. This must be entered exactly as shown. The formula looks for a match of the exact number (99999999.99), and if you do not match the number exactly, the withholdings will be incorrect for some employees. Note it ends in .99 and NOT .00.

If you see a table ID STXWIU, you may use the F3 (delete) to remove this table. This is an old head of household table that has not been used for several years in WI.

Be sure to look at the state tax withholding on your first payroll Edit Register (before you print checks) after making these changes. It should only be slightly less for the same wage amount.
