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 Payroll Items screen to configure and maintain the various pay, deduction, and employer contribution types of payroll items required for each of your clients. (Payroll items are defined on a client-by-client basis rather than on a global level, although payroll items can be transferred to any client from a client template.)

Choose Setup > Payroll Items.

The payroll items set up for a selected client are displayed in the Payroll Items tab of the Employees screen when that client is selected.
