Last updated on JULY 15, 2021

Applies to:

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


After making a MO W-4 Change to Married and Spouse Works; system is saving as "Married Spouse Not Working".

Expect tax info to use status of B, which means, "Married, Employee and Spouse Both Work".

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. set EE with State taxes paid to MO and marital status as X.
2. EE updates W-4 from X status to "Married" and spouse works as "Yes".
3. review State tax information and see that marital status is set to M, "Married and spouse does not work." (should be status B)
