Accounting CS Payroll, for live payroll processing

In addition to any changes made for general payroll features listed above for after-the-fact payroll processing, the following changes have been made for the live payroll processing features specific to Accounting CS Payroll.

Payroll compliance

  • Kentucky. Effective for tax year 2022, the Kentucky Department of Revenue now requires all employers to file Form K-1 electronically and will no longer accept paper copies of the form for quarterly depositors. As a result, we have made several changes to the application. Details
  • Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission requires all employers to file Form OES-3 electronically and will no longer accept paper copies of the form. Therefore, we have removed the Paper filing method and added the Web fill-in method. You can also file the form using the Internet filing method.
  • Pennsylvania locals. Effective for tax year 2022, the City of Philadelphia has moved its annual reconciliation to a quarterly filing requirement. All employers are required to electronically file the new quarterly reconciliation Form PHILADELPH_Q.

    Note: We are closely working with the City of Philadelphia on implementing the new Form PHILADELPH_Q worksheet and electronic file. We plan to release both on a future application update tentatively scheduled for April 25, 2022.
