This is the screen
where you setup your employees’ information and payroll information.
You will notice that there is a row of tabs on that screen that
corresponds to some important payroll information.
The filing status
tab consists of the information necessary to calculate with holding
taxes. You must fill out
these fields in order to process the payroll for the employee.
This data on this tab should correspond to the employee’s
answers on his or her W-4 form.
The Pay Info tab
corresponds to the actually pay information for your employee.
One thing on this tab you will notice is that there is no
information about commission rates.
The pay frequency selection indicates how often you pay this
employee. Bi-Weekly pay
frequency means that this employee is paid every two weeks while the
semi monthly pay frequency indicates that the employee should be paid
twice a month.
The deductions tab
will list all the pre-tax deductions.
Deduction types should be setup in the payroll defaults section
of the program. To add a deduction to the employee just select the add button
and to edit or delete a deduction double click the deduction.
Every deduction will be used at the time of payroll process.
