Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Union dues example

Example icon Your client needs to add a pay item for union dues.

The new Union dues pay item must calculate based only on hours that employees actually work (rather than on hours that the employees are paid), so hours from vacation or other paid time off must be excluded from the calculation. To do this, mark the checkbox in the Accruable Benefits column in the [All Pay Items] row.

IRA employer match example

Example icon Your client wants to match an employee's percent of gross pay for regular wages only.

The new IRA employer match payroll item or employer contribution item must calculate based only on regular hours, so overtime hours, double time hours, and accruable benefit hours must be excluded from the calculation. To do this, mark the checkboxes in the OT, DT, and Accruable Benefits columns in the [All Pay Items] row.
