Hello Everyone,

Two cases were logged for this issue - one by Leslie for Central SD and another by Michelle for North Wasco.  Both are assigned to Audrey Howard.  Audrey was told by Leslie that Willamette's state calculations ARE correct.

We compared Willamette's state tax table set up to both Central and North Wasco found that both Central and North Wasco's state tax tables are NOT set up like Willamette's state tax table.

Leslie, please share what you have entered in your tax table (including the information on the Tax Details button) with the others.

Once the tax tables are updated with the correct values, please run a test and let the group know if the problem has been corrected.

FYI, we are on 4.3, an ASP site, AND when I run the numbers, ours do not work either, although they do follow the formula in the state tax book.  I agree, this may be a Pentamation problem in the update process.

I have contacted Pentamation and they told me that there was a tax update applied to the districts on 4.3 and  they think maybe they missed applying it to 4.2 districts.  They are looking into it and will get back to me.  They have the case marked critical so it will go to the top of the list.  I will keep you all posted.

Thank you,

Our District has been working with the Dept. of Revenue and has checked with non-Pentamation users to determine if our Pentamation is working correctly calculating the State tax payroll deductions. It's not! I had the Dept. of Revenue review a record and they said our system is not calculating right.

For example: Any employee earns $59,500. Employee claims Married and 4. This employee should have $273 deducted for state. However, Pentamation says $18. We ran spot checks with several individuals and they were all very similar.

We want to warn districts to do spot checks on your $50K + income earners. We've confirmed with at least one other Pentamation user school district their calculations are incorrect.
