EPY: Incorrect SSP Taxable Gross Adjustment When Rate Has Only Spouse -SS Rate for States That Are "Adds To" (Doc ID 1958678.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 18, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Payroll for North America - Version 9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In PeopleSoft Payroll for North America, release 9 and above,  the Taxable Gross Component is increasing the Federal taxable gross by the entire amount of the deduction for the Medical plan instead of only the amount set as Spouse – SS Rate on the Other Rates table for the State.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
---------------------------
The taxable gross for the state should be higher than the Federal taxable gross by the amount of the Spouse – SS Rate on the Other Rates table.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------------------
The taxable gross for the state is higher than the Federal taxable gross by the total amount of the Medical plan cost and the Taxable Gross Adjustment page is attributing that additional amount to Child-SS.  

When an employee is covering their same-sex spouse only, the taxable gross adjustment is occurring for both the spouse and the child even though the child is not being covered. Furthermore, there is not even a Children SS-Rate associated with the benefit but it is pulling the spouse rate.  

STEPS
---------------------------
1. Enter Other Rates on the Benefit Rate used for the Medical plan, splitting the total costs between Employee –SS Rate and Spouse – SS Rate (Navigation: Set Up HRMS > Product Related > Base Benefits > Rates and Rules > Benefit Rates).
2. Calculate a payroll (Navigation: Payroll for North America > Payroll Processing USA > Produce Payroll > Calculate Payroll).
