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.

Use the Graduated Table dialog for payroll items to set up a tiered rate for employer contribution amounts and specify the limit for each tier. This option is particularly useful for setting up a safe harbor matching contribution. For more information, view an example in the Employer contributions - Graduated table example.

Choose Setup > Payroll Items, click the Main tab, choose the Graduated option in the Calculation section, and then click the Table button.

Fields & buttons

Specify how the employer match is to be calculated. If you select Percent of deduction from the drop-down list, the Deduction field becomes available, allowing you to choose the deduction to link to this calculation.

Select whether the limit is per check, perpetual, or year to date and how it is to be calculated - by percent of deduction or gross pay or by amount. If you select Percent of deduction from the drop-down list, the Deduction field becomes available, allowing you to choose the deduction to link to this calculation.

When you have specified how the deduction and limit are to be calculated, the grid headings reflect those choices. Enter the calculation and limit specifications.
