Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017. CSA will not include 2017 tax rates or payroll forms, so, for 2017 and beyond, you will need to process payroll in another application. We recommend Accounting CS Payroll and myPay Solutions. For more information, see the following topics.

The Rhode Island Supplemental Information dialog allows you to enter additional information unique to the Rhode Island form processing requirements.

Choose Utilities > Payroll Tax Processing and then either click the RI state flag icon on the shortcut bar or choose View > Rhode Island. Choose Setup > Supplemental Information when the Rhode Island payroll tax processing window is active.
