Morgantown West Virignia Head Tax incorrectly withheld on supplemental pays

Submit a payroll with a supplemental bonus (tax separate and separate check).
When the pay run is processed, the City_HT_WK tax deduction is applied to both the Standard Run and the Separate Payment Run. This is for the same pay period and same check date. This is, in effect, doubling the taxes that should be withheld. The deduction should only be withheld from the Standard Run.

As a comparison, we ran a quick pay using the same supplemental bonus element for an employee working in Charleston, WV (which also has a head tax). Quickpay executed in same instance for same pay period and check date.

As expected, City_HT_WK tax deduction was only applied to Standard Run. There was no row for City_HT_WK at alll in the Pay Run Results of the Separate Payment.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. applied February Monthly Vertex update file
2. Submit the payroll head tax taken
3. Submit a separate run for a supplement run the head tax is taken again

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot properly tax the employees in the Morgantown, West Virginia jursidiction_code


 Morgantown delivered a new tax in the February 2016 monthly vertex file
