Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

The Tax Calculation Diagnostics dialog shows how the tax amounts were computed by the application for the selected payroll check when it was saved.

When the Payroll Check Entry dialog is active, choose Tax Calculation Diagnostics from the Edit menu or from the F3 or right-click context menu.


  • For checks saved prior to the 2006.1.x release, the tax calculation diagnostics are based on current payroll tax information and may not reflect the actual calculations used when the check was originally saved.
  • Calculations based on year-to-date wages are based on wages earned up to the current period.
