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.

Use the Select Taxes dialog to specify which taxes should be reduced in the event that an employee's check calculation results in negative net pay.

Choose Setup > Clients and click the Payroll Information tab. In the Negative Check Treatment section, choose Selected in the Taxes field, and then click the button.
