Why is tax calculated incorrectly for the second pay run in the period if there is a tax refund via seeded Tax Deduction element (Doc ID 2429362.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2019

Applies to:

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


Tax refund is entered for the employee via the seeded element 'Tax Deduction' and payroll/ quickpay is processed. There is no issue in the first pay run. But when payroll/ quickpay is run again for the same period, tax is getting deducted even if there are no Earnings leading to negative net pay. This can cause issue in a scenario where a tax refund is made in the first run and Bonus is paid in the second run. In such case, employee will be taxed more on the earnings in second pay run.
