It appears that when Pension is present for an employee that the correct garnishment amount is not be calculated correctly in some cases.
The pension element has a classification of Pre-Tax Deductions and a category of Retirement.  The Pension is a mandatory deduction in place of Social Security tax.

Using the state of Illinois worksheet the initial calculated deduction amount should be Gross - Pension x 15%. It does NOT appear to be taking that pension into account. The second calculation that takes into account a state mandated reserve seems to using the pension amount. Then what should be happening is the least of the two calculations is used to figure the garnishment amount.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Pay employee with Garnishment and Pension deductions.
2. Review the amounts withheld.
3. The correct garnishment amount is not be calculated correctly in some cases.
