Incorrect subject wages for additional Medicare withholding (FED9) if there's a pre-tax deduction

Consider the following scenario in Payroll in Microsoft Dynamics SL:

Fed9, additional Medicare taxes for earnings over government specified limits, incorrectly calculates.

 Fed9 setup: 

1. Open Deduction Maintenance (02.290.00)

2. In Deduction ID, type FED9.

3. Change the Min YTD Subject Base to 200000.00 and change the Max YTD Subject Base to 999999999.

4. On the Exemptions/Credits tab, click on an empty line, Press F4 to switch to form view.

5. If you have a FED6 exemption on FED9 then you will need to delete this exemption.

6. For FED9, set up any pretax exemptions such as medical insurance, the same as you have them for FED6 if you want. But with this hot fix, it now doesn’t matter at all what exemptions you have attached to Fed9 because Fed9 calculations will only use the Fed6 subject wages. Calculations for FED9 will be the same with or without exemptions attached.

NOTE: If the employee is not going to reach the 200000 amount then a good option is to Exempt the employee from Fed9 in Employee Maintenance.
