Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017. CSA will not include 2017 tax rates or payroll forms, so, for 2017 and beyond, you will need to process payroll in another application. We recommend Accounting CS Payroll and myPay Solutions. For more information, see the following topics.

The Payment-related Information field contains a consecutive string comprising the information listed below.

Note: The stated width for each item is a maximum width. If the data does not fill the maximum width, do not fill in the remaining width with spaces or zeros. (The application will automatically fill the remaining spaces in the field.)
