Symptoms


In Microsoft Dynamics GP or in Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains, State Unemployment Taxes (SUTA) or Federal Unemployment Taxes (FUTA) taxable wages are off by the amount of a tax sheltered annuity (TSA) deduction.

Resolution


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Use the appropriate method:
    • In Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0, point to Tools on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, point to Setup, point to Payroll, and then click Unemployment Tax.


    • In Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 or in Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains 8.0, point to Setup on the Tools menu, point to Payroll, and then click Unemployment Tax.

  2. In the Unemployment Tax Setup window, type the two digit tax code in the Tax Code field.

  3. Select the Tax Sheltered Annuities check box.

  4. Select the TSA deduction that the SUTA or FUTA report is off by, and then click Insert to insert the TSA deduction as taxable wages.
  5. Click Save to save the unemployment record.

More Information


By default, Microsoft Dynamics GP assumes a deduction as tax sheltered from SUTA or from FUTA if the deduction is sheltered from any taxes on the deduction setup. If this deduction should not be sheltered from SUTA or from FUTA, the deduction has to be included as taxable wages in the SUTA setup.
