PayCalc Developments and Fixes

The following is a list of all PayCalc 2018 releases as well
as the problems that were fixed and the features that
were added or modified in each release.

2018.00 - 12/19/2017 (Initial Release)

  • Draft Tax Form Copy. A draft copy of Form 941 for 2018 as of June 15, 2017 has been included.

  • New Tax Form. A Form W-4 is now accessible through the Employee Fille Maintenance and the Create New Employee window. This will make it easier to enter employee data from a paper Form W-4 to the screen version. All data entered on Form W-4 will flow back to the Employee File Manintenance or the Create New Employee window when the Process command is clicked.

  • New User Defined Field Action. Two new Actions to be Calculated on User Field Mutiplier have been added to the User Defined Field Action Setup window: (1) Percentage of Federal Wages and (2) Percentage of Medicare Wages.

  • New Manual Entry Window Command Button. When clicked, this new command button will load the Other Payroll Periods window which will display the previously posted payroll period. While the initial data displayed will be the previously posted payroll period, you may modify the pay dates "from" and "to" fields to look back at other posted payroll periods.

  • Withholding Tax Calculation Changes. The exempt from Federal and State withholding checkboxes on the Employee File Maintenance will receive a new behaviour. When checked, these boxes will cause no withholding tax to be computed, however, if the Additional Federal or State Withholding Tax fields include an amount, then such amount will become part of Federal/State withholding tax.

  • Note. The Federal Withholding Tax Rate Tables for 2018 have not been updated from 2017. If the Tax Cut and Jobs Act passes the congress; the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), claims they will issue new withhoding tables by early February of 2018. This means that we will be using the 2017 withholding tables for January of 2018. The program's Federal Withholding Tax Rate Tables for 2018 will be updated as soon as the IRS releases the 2018 withhoding tables.

2018.01 - 01/15/2018

  • Modified. The Federal Withholding Tax Rate Tables for 2018 to conform with the passage of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act signed by President Trump on December 22, 2017.

2018.02 - 02/28/2018

  • Added. Support for printing and filing Forms 941 and 941-V for 2018.
