CHANGES
Write-Up CS®
We have updated some of the tax code descriptions for clients that are set up with an entity type of 1040
or 1041.
Payroll form and filing information
To determine the status, availability, and filing methods for payroll tax forms, refer to the Payroll section of
the CSA Home Page. Click the + sign next to a jurisdiction to display the list of available forms. Click the
+ sign next to any form to display the status and filing methods available.

The application now calculates federal Form 940, Schedule A, and the 940 Worksheet to allocate
amounts based on each employee rather than on the client as a whole. This change affects clients
with employees who work in more than one SUTA state or with employees who have no SUTA wages
but do have FUTA wages.
We have addressed the following issues.
 The application did not display the FICA wages and taxes when the ELF 941 file was previewed
via the ELF Maintenance dialog.
 The application displayed the locality name instead of the PSD code in Box 20 of the W-2 forms if
the client paid taxes for multiple localities. The application now displays the two-digit PSD code
for any locality item set up for Pennsylvania city tax.
 The application incorrectly displayed “99” as the two-digit PSD code for all Pennsylvania locals in
the Utilities > Global W-2 Processing dialog.
 We have made a minor text edit on the Facsimile version of Form W-3. If you have already
printed this form, the agency will still accept it. If you have modified this form in the Layout Editor,
you will need to make your changes again.
 We have updated the W-2 Verify feature to remove the Military Pay fields from the RT record.
The verify feature now correctly validates all total fields per the 2012 EFW2 specifications.
Note: The verify feature is intended to validate total fields within the W-2 files and should be used
to verify that total amounts are updated when you combine files for multiple users within CSA.
The verify feature is not a substitute for the AccuWage program provided by the SSA.
We have updated the following tax information for 2013. If you have not configured the program to
update your payroll tax information automatically, choose Setup > System Configuration > Payroll tax
Information > Update.
 New Mexico – state withholding tax tables
 Oklahoma – state withholding tax tables
 Vermont – state withholding tax tables
