Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

The Adjust Taxable Wages dialog enables you to create adjustments to taxable wage amounts and gross taxable wage amounts for employees. This might be necessary to make corrections to the taxable wage information on payroll checks due to an error in tax treatment or to reduce taxable wage amounts if retirement plan contributions for an employee are paid outside of the payroll process.

Choose Setup > Employees, click the Payroll Taxes tab, and then click the Adjust taxable wages hyperlink.

Notes

  • "Taxable wage amount" refers to the employee's gross wages minus any pre-tax deductions with the taxable wage limit applied. "Gross taxable wage amount" refers to the employee's gross wages minus any pre-tax deductions with the taxable wage limit not applied.
  • You can adjust wages only for printed payroll checks or for handwritten checks that have liabilities generated for them. Information in the Adjust Taxable Wages dialog cannot be modified for any other types of payroll checks.

The grid contains the following columns and buttons.

  • Taxes. These fields provides a read-only view of the tax descriptions for the selected taxes. Click the Ellipsis button in this column to open the Tax Selection dialog to specify which taxes are to be adjusted. The taxes that you select here will display in the Tax Balances grid.
  • Gross Taxable. Enter the adjustment amount to be made for gross taxable wages, if applicable. This amount can be positive or negative.
  • Taxable Wage. Enter the adjustment amount to be made for taxable wages, if applicable. This amount can be positive or negative.

  • Delete Delete button button. Use this button to delete a selected adjustment. Highlight the row and click the Delete button.

This read-only grid displays the information necessary for you to make the correct taxable wage adjustments for each applicable tax type. The tax types that display in the grid are those selected for adjustment in the Tax Selection dialog.

The grid includes amounts from all the employee's printed and handwritten payroll check transactions that do not have a deleted or voided status. These amounts include:

  • gross taxable and taxable wages
  • gross taxable and taxable adjustment amounts
  • adjusted gross taxable and adjusted taxable wage amounts
