When attempting to upload the Alabama Mag Media File for Q3 2023, to the Alabama SUI website, the file was rejected and following error is returned.

"Your file contains multiple companies"

After examining he file it was noticed that Alabama SUI Magnetic Media (01)(R89078301), created the Alabama Mag Media File with five Alabama employee numbers with two different company numbers which resulted in the file having two RT (total) lines; one total line for each company. It was also noticed that all Alabama employees being reported were assigned to ONE Federal Tax Identification Number (TAXT).

Steps to Duplicate:

  3. Create two new Employees who reside and Work in Alabama.
    1. First employee (522528) works in Tax Area 01 (Alabama) and is assigned to Company 00001.
    2. Second employee (522529) works in Tax Area 01 (Alabama) and is assigned to Company 00050.
  4. Set Alabama Unemployment Insurance Rates (P079221) for Tax Authority 01 (Alabama) for Company 00001 and Company 00050 for 2023.

    4. Each Employee Worked 4 Weeks.
  10. Tax History (F06136) shows two Z records were created for the two companies but the Tax Identification Numbers were left Blank. These Z records should have the Tax Identification Number (840782700) populated.
  11. Set Processing Options and Data Selection for Prepare Data for SUI Report (R078300)
    1. Year Required 23
    2. Quarter 4

  15. The Report PDF is 2 pages with both companies assigned to Federal Tax Identification Number (TAXX/FEIN) of 840782700 but with Page Breaks by Company
  16. Now run Alabama SUI Magnetic Media (01)(R89078301) report to create the file to upload to the State of Alabama SUI Website.
