Updated Tax Tables Available
In order to use the current tax tables, your software must be current as of Patch 36 (released 23-OCT-08).

FEBRUARY 3, 2009: Changes to the tax tables for the following states were released:

Connecticut: "F" Table ONLY
Rhode Island

The Louisiana tables are not required until July 1, 2009, but it is our understanding that users may begin using them before that date; the tax rate changes will be applied to the entire year when filing tax returns in 2010. Please consult your Roundtable dealer or your accountant for details.Both the Louisiana and Missouri tables use the FWT deductions in their calculations, so be sure to note the deduction numbers listed on the existing tables before deleting them.

Note On Tax Table Changes

When we make changes to the tax tables, we release a new copy of the file, ADPRTXTB.DAT. This file resides in the SYS (AFILES) directory. It contains master copies of tables for all states that have an income tax and tables for the Federal calculations. Payroll program 58, Transfer Tax Tables, accesses this file and provides a way to copy tables into your data set, where you can access them through Payroll program 2, Deduction Tables.

Because this is a data file, changes to it do not require a ‘patch’ so it is updated as needed. Therefore, the file on the website may—and often is—more current than the file shipped with current product. So when you order new product or a replacement CD, you should also check the Tax Tables page to see if there is a more current version of tax tables available. If there is, install the CD to get the current software, then load the more current tax table file from the website.
