Version 4: Patch 42, 11-29-13

Version 4: Patch 42, Released November 29 2013

This patch has been compressed with the PKZip utility. After downloading, you must decompress it before installing it with the DeltaDOS program.

Payroll upgrades:

* Deductions now have new Federal Reference Number options for FICA Hospitalization, FICA Social Security and FICA Additional Medicare Tax. Your existing FICA deductions should be updated to reference the new Federal Reference Numbers.

* Payroll program 6 (Employee Master) now allows four settings for marital status: Single, Married, Head of Household, and Married Filing Separately. The new options allow for proper calculation of FICA AMT owed by the employer on federal tax returns.

* Payroll program 15 (Calculate Taxes/Deductions) now has special code for calculating FICA AMT deductions. The previous implementation of AMT deduction calculation was fine for employees who receive consistent salary each pay period, but did not address those whose pay fluctuates throughtout the year, or leave the company mid-year. In order to calculate correctly for such employees, AMT calculations are no longer annualized, but are based on the employee's accumulated pay thus far in the year.

Please note that these changes to Payroll for FICA AMT calculation and reporting require not only this patch, but also the latest Payroll tax tables for 2014, which are included with the eFile Prep 2013/14 package.

* New error messages and program info added for Windows product.
