The AccountMate Payroll (PR) module provides functionality to handle a wide variety of payroll taxation requirements. Automatic payroll processing handles federal taxation and state withholding, employer SUTA, and SDI. However, the many unique combinations of local withholding and reporting requirements require user input so that PR can accommodate each company’s specific needs.

For example, an employee may reside in one state and work in another state, so their wages are subject to taxation in both states. In certain circumstances, the employee may also be subject to both county and city payroll taxes. Article #1310: How to Use the Payroll Local Tax Table Maintenance Function explains how to automate various local tax calculation and reporting requirements.
