PSPUSTAX.cbl stops with " Attempt to divide by zero"

The PRP 22265126 was applied which included the above cobol program. All cobols were re-compiled successfully. I looked at Doc ID 607557.1 and the solutions either did not apply or did not work.
We un-sheeted and re-sheeted and the calc stopped on a different paygroup. We determined the paysheet where the program stopped, clicked that person OFF as not OK to pay and the calc failed again.


Object Code error : file '/appl2/pt854/cblbin/PSPUSTAX.gnt'
error code: 48, pc=0, call=1, seg=0
 48 Attempt to divide by zero (in PSPUSTAX.cbl, line 4250)

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Applied PRP 22265126
2. Recompiled the cobols successfully
3. Ran the payroll calculation

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot run the payroll calculation to success.
