E1: 07: R078500 Is Calculating Taxable Qualified Sick Leave Wages Incorrectly When Wage Limit Is Reached (Doc ID 2724043.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne US Payroll - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the quarter, an employee reaches social security wage limit and then has covid pay. Tax history is correctly updated when payroll is processed. The covid wages exceed the remaining wages needed to reach the social security limit. When this occurs, the amount exceeds the taxable wages for the quarter for that employee and information is reported incorrectly on the 941 report.

1. Create new employee.
2. Process payroll for employee in Q1 and Q2 and come close to social security limit but do not reach (for example, $3000 left to reach wage limit).
3. Process payroll for employee in Q3 and reach and exceed social security limit.
4. Create timecard for covid pay that exceeds the amount that was needed to reach wage limit (for example, $5000).
5. Process covid timecard through payroll updating to history.
6. Submit 941 report for the employee and verify wages reported, especially line 5a.
