EPY: Patch 23712306 Changes Behavior For Countries Prefixed By $ (Doc ID 2239553.1)

Last updated on MARCH 01, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Payroll for North America - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The documentation for Patch 23712306 includes the following:
Prior to the modifications, $S was erroneously accepted as a valid value for the Country field in the Tax Treaty/Non-Resident Data section of the employee Federal Tax Data page.

The value $S was not erroneously accepted; this was delivered behavior per PeopleBooks:

If you want to establish entries on the NR Alien Tax Treaty table that are applicable to more than one country (for example, to use for all scholarship income that is to be taxed at 30%, or for countries that do not have a treaty), you can use any value prefixed by a $ in the country code (for example, Country = $S).

And

Select a country from the list, or select one of the generic entries that are prefixed with $ that you may have established on the NR Alien Tax Treaty table (nonresident alien tax treaty table).


Based on those instructions we had set up the country $NR to use for all countries that have no tax treaty with the U.S. We have many nonresident aliens currently set up with country $NR on Federal Tax Data. After applying Patch 23712306 we are no longer able to use $NR as a country.
