01/16/18 Payroll Tax Tables 2017.4.4 Notice 01/16/18

NOTICE

2018 Federal Tax Tables

On December 22nd, new legislation was signed into Law regarding Federal Income Tax, which was much later in the year than typical. On January 11th, the IRS released its guidance (linked below) on the new law and the updated tax tables for use in Payroll calculations. Once this release was posted we began the process of updating the Tables within ACS, this process takes time to ensure the accuracy in ACS. The notice from the IRS indicates that clients are not required to use the new Tax Tables until Feb 15th. We currently are planning an update for ACS early in February to make these changes.

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/updated-2018-withholding-tables-now-available-taxpayers-could-see-paycheck-changes-by-February

If you’re talking to a Firm who’s questioning the timeliness of the update, please let them know due to our development cycles, early February is the earliest we can implement the changes and ensure we release with the greatest accuracy. Additionally, in the notice from the IRS, they do indicate that the it’s not required to use the new Tax Tables until Feb 15th.

01/02/18 Payroll CSA Conversion N/A Notice 01/02/18 TBD Cannot convert because CSA payroll period is not in the latest period

Because CSA licenses are now expired and past the grace period, some firms are finding they cannot convert certain clients because the client's payroll processing period is not in the latest period for that client. They cannot change the processing period with expired licenses so this will have to be completed by support.

If we get a customer who is unable to convert because they cannot move their payroll period forward, your FIRST STEP is to review CSA & CBS end of support workflow to determine if they are eligible for support.

Remember getting data isn’t ideal and this is a one time exception for this CSA issue. If they are eligible for support, please let the customer know that we need to make a change in the client data to resolve the issue. Have the customer upload the client to CS Connect and enter a CFR listing the CSA Client ID. Please do not download the CSA data. The CF will retrieve the client from CS Connect. The CF will manually move the client into the latest payroll processing period and provide you with the fixed client data to be sent back to the firm. Below are links to topics that can be used to walk the customers through sending in the client and how to securely send back the zip file the CF will provide. Once the firm receives the fixed zip file, they should save this in a folder named the same as the CSA Client ID. (Client IDs over eight characters long require a decimal after the eighth character EX: MICHIGAN.STA)

This, in turn, causes there to be no gross pay and no taxes calculate.

11/17/17 Payroll Tax Calculation 2017.3.2 Verified 11/17/17 TBD Colorado Denver OPT tax is overwithheld in some circumstances

Currently the calculation in the system looks at how much was deducted that month. If you have weekly checks and then do a quarterly check it will still calculate because it doesn't look at how much was deducted previously, only for that month.

06/16/17 Payroll Local Taxes 2017.1.3 Verified 06/16/17 TBD Ohio local taxes may not calculate correctly in certain situations

We have identified an issue with the Ohio local tax calculation when the following conditions are present on a client/employee:

Multiple work locations including one that isn't subject to local taxes and one that has a JEDD/JEDZ.

The employee resident address is subject to local with Nexus marked for courtesy withholding.

The employee has both the no-local tax work location and the JEDZ location active.

In this situation, taxes may not appear to calculate initially when hours/amounts are entered, but may start calculating again if the user overwrites the hours/amounts or adds hours to another column on the check. Our development is aware of the issue and is working to resolve it.

The error is occurring because while initial calculation is not appearing, overrides or additional hours/amounts trigger a recalculation that causes the tax to calculate. The user adding more information after this point can cause the tax to stop calculating again. This issue may repeat from calculating to not calculating each time a recalculation is triggered.

We have only observed this issue when all the conditions above are present. Please make sure you are continuing to test with the user if all the conditions are not being met.

If you have multiple child support deductions items setup on an employee and one is marked as inactive and in arrear the disposable income of the active child support deductions item is calculated incorrectly at 65% vs. 60%.

Employees with the same SSN are not currently datasharing between clients. Changes made to one employee record are not causing changes to other employee records with the same SSN as intended. Our development team is working to resolve this issue.

Workaround: The option to transfer employee information between clients is still available by going to File > Transfer Client Information. That would transfer more than just the demographic changes made, but, would remove the need to re-enter all the information for an employee when creating a new record.

06/12/17 Accounting Import 2017.1.3 Verified 06/12/17 TBD Quickbooks Online import error due to description length

Users can get an error stating "There is a problem access the SQL server, do you will wish to retry the action" when importing from Quickbooks Online. This is due to the length of a transaction description in Quickbooks, as Accounting CS limits those descriptions to 200 characters. Page breaks in descriptions can be misinterpreted by Accounting CS causing the program to see the descriptions as being longer than 200 characters. Our development team is reviewing the issue and hopes to resolve this on a future update.

Workaround: Remove either the page breaks or enough characters that the characters and the page breaks together are less than 200.

11/18/16 Payroll Accruable Benefits 2016.3.0 Verified 11/29/16 TBD Wrong next accrual date on accruable benefit if method is changed

In some situations the program is assigning the wrong next accrual date to employees when an accruable benefit item's accrual method is changed. This appears to only be an issue when changing the new accrual method to be Anniversary.

There are two workarounds that will force the system to set the next accrual date to the proper value.

Workaround 1: Choose Setup > Accruable Benefits screen and change both the Accrual Method AND the Balance Reset Date.

Workaround 2:  After the accrual method has been changed on the accruable benefit item, edit the employee and change ANY setting on the accruable benefit item (such as enter an Adjustment or modify the employee's hire date).  Save the change.  Edit the employee and change the settings back to what they should be.  This will force the program to refresh and pick up the proper next accrual date.
