Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (US) - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, US Payroll Tax Issues

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
For the past couple months the rate for MA SDI has been .34% which matches Vertex and is good.
Find that the Unacceptable Tax Balance Report is erroring with the message *** SDI ER Liability does not = .36% of SDI ER Taxable Balance ***,  which is now a very old rate. It’s been happening since 1st quarter 2015.
We can see that the EMAC (Employer Medical Assistance Contribution) SDI tax rate has not been updated to 0.34 in Oracle Base table for State MA, due to which it is causing error in UTB report.



EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect Unacceptable Tax Balance Report to not report MA SDI.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run the Unacceptable Tax Balance Report
2. see the error message for MA SDI
