- What dates does the pay calculation look at for tax purposes?
- How does PeopleSoft calculate taxes when an employee transfers, after the pay end date and before the check date.
- When using 'Create Single Check' functionality, the calculation of taxes is based on the paycheck issue date from the on-cycle pay calendar that the check is processed against. The program is ignoring the actual issue date and using the maximum effective dated row from FED_TAX_DATA and STATE_TAX_DATA based on the check date from the calendar. There are common cases where an employee may have tax data that would be future dated based on the online check's issue date and the checks taxes are calculated incorrectly. We know that payroll uses the issue date to determine tax withholdings for the on-cycle where the issue date is determined from the pay calendar but client would like the logic to be changed for off -cycle.
Will PeopleSoft consider changing this functionality so that the system uses the date of the check not the check date on the pay calendar.
