Use the Local dialog to add or modify certain information to be used for local tax agents. For each individual tax, you can specify a different withholding ID and deposit schedule to use and also specify whether or not the client has nexus in this locality.

If a client has nexus in a jurisdiction, it means that they have a business connection or a presence in that jurisdiction and are therefore subject to state or local income and sales taxes.

Choose Setup > Clients, click the Payroll Taxes tab, and click the Local button in the State section.

Notes

  • For New York clients - you can use this dialog to modify the tax rate for the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax (MCTMT).
  • For San Francisco, California clients - you can use this dialog to prevent the application from calculating San Francisco Payroll Expense Tax on checks.

Fields & buttons

Local grid. The grid contains a list of the local taxes that apply to the selected client. If you want to specify a withholding ID to be used with a tax, enter it in the Withholding ID column. In addition, you can modify the deposit schedule for the agent that corresponds to each tax. If the client has nexus in this locality, you can specify that here by marking the checkbox in the Nexus column.

If a client has nexus in a jurisdiction, it means that they have a business connection or a presence in that jurisdiction and are therefore subject to state or local income and sales taxes.

If you accessed the Local dialog via the Payroll Tax Forms tab of the Setup > Payroll Consolidation Groups screen, you can mark the Do not consolidate checkbox if you do not want local payroll tax forms to be consolidated with those of other clients in the consolidation group. For more information, see Consolidating client payroll tax information.

Note: Only localities that are assigned to a tax agent display in the Local grid. If a locality is not part of a tax agent that is already provided by the application, you will need to add a local jurisdiction tax agent before the locality will display here in the grid.

Default EIT Tax Collector. (Pennsylvania only) The agent that you select here will be the default agent used for any combined earned-income tax items added in the future for this client.

W2 PSD Code. (Pennsylvania only) The application displays the PA PSD code (known as the TCD code) entered in this field in Box 20 on all copies of the client's W-2 forms. The PSD code field is blank by default, and the application displays 99 in Box 20 of the forms until the correct code is entered into this field.

The TCD code entered here should be the code for the Tax Collection District in which the employer remitted the taxes.

Note: Accounting CS supports entering only one W2 PSD Code for each client. This is because employers should remit taxes to only one tax collection district, with the exception of Philadelphia taxes, which are reported separately. Philadelphia displays on its own line for Box 20 with PHILADEL as the Locality name.
