Adding a state or local withholding record to the employee card is different depending on whether you have multi-state enabled or not.

State Withholding

  • When multi-state is not enabled on the Payroll Setup window, the state withholding appears on the employee card main page. Enter all relevant information for the employee’s state withholding.
  • When multi-state is enabled in the Payroll Setup window, the state and local withholding windows are found by navigating to the employee, then Navigate > Employee > State / Local Withholding Setup.
  • The State / Local Withholding Window opens. All state withholding records will appear in this window.

Local Withholding

  • When multi-state is not enabled on the Payroll Setup window, the local withholding appears on the employee card main page.
  • When multi-state is enabled on the Payroll Setup window, the local withholding is held with the state withholding records using the menu navigation from the above section. Local withholding can be filled out for each state withholding record.
