When an employee is on tax code ‘STC’ and they are terminated and then tax should be calculated correctly.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Scenario 1: Employee KZ0007.
Earnings used:
Extra Emolument earnings code is BONUS, as this contributes to EXTRA EMOL GROSS accumulator.
Employee is on tax code STC, with a tax rate of 0.1661:
Employee was terminated on 2/4/2014:
Results from calendar group KZ 2014M04 - Annual Leave was paid out and taxed as expected:
Results from calendar group KZ 2014M05 – None present, as expected:
Insert BONUS of $30,909.22 for calendar group KZ 2014M06:
Results from calendar group KZ 2014M06 – BONUS is visible, but no tax calculated:
You can see that the BONUS amount was added to the EXTRA EMOL GROSS accumulator:

The expected result according to the New Zealand I.R.D. Payroll Specification Document in section 6.9 or 6.10 is:
Pay for period (including normal and extra pay) is $30909.22.
Truncate to $30909.
Deduct tax at the S.T.C. rate:
Tax = 30909 * 0.1661 = $5133.9849
Which truncated to whole cents = $5133.98.
This amount should appear as a deduction in the results.
