Now, please go to Step 1 to begin.
Step 1—Verify you received the correct media for your computer system.
Updates are for a specific computer operating system, such as Windows, UNIX or DOS. Check the label
on the update you received to verify you received the correct one for your system. If the update media is
not correct, do not install the update. Call ABS immediately at (978) 250-9600.
Step 2—Read the following warning and assumptions.
WARNING:
 Do not install the update until you read all of the enclosed instructions thoroughly. Failure on
your part to do so could result in the permanent loss of payroll data.
ABS ASSUMES THAT...
 You are currently processing payrolls with the ABS Payroll System for Windows.
 You have made two backup copies of your payroll software, and your payroll data and your
2016 payroll tax file update.
 You will only install the update if you have the experience and expertise to do so correctly. If
not, do not install the update. Call your ABS dealer.
 Your ABS Payroll System software has not been modified. If it is modified, do not install the
update. Contact the ABS dealer who modified your software.
Step 3—Make the backups.
As an added measure of protection, make two backup copies each of your ABS Payroll software, your
payroll data files and the update before you begin the update process.
Step 4—Run your last payroll for 2015.
Step 5—Load the update.
 Do not install the 2016 Payroll Tax File Update until you run your company's last payroll for
2015. You must, however, install the update and make any necessary changes in tax authority
information before running your first payroll for 2016.
 Note. If your company has any special State Quarterly Reports, they will be loaded automatically
when you install the 2016 Payroll Tax File Update.
Follow these instructions to run the Load Tax File Utility.
A. From the Payroll Main Menu, select Utilities, then select Load tax file.
Important. If you previously used the Load Tax Utility, the system will automatically display the
Source Drive and Destination Directory names you last entered. You should be able to simply click
Data OK to load the update. If that fails, follow the instructions below.
B. At SOURCE DRIVE?, the default is A. If you are loading the diskette from floppy drive A, press
ENTER. If you are loading it from another floppy drive or CD, such as B, C, D, E or F, type the letter
that identifies that drive.
C. At DESTINATION DIRECTORY, the default directory is displayed. If you need to change this
directory, clear the displayed directory, type .\ (period and back slash), then click the Search icon.
When the files are displayed, find the file named PYTAXES.IF, then double-click on it. The system
will locate the correct destination directory and return to the Load Tax File with the directory name
highlighted.
D. To load the tax update, select Data OK. (The system may display a message line to indicate that it
is loading data. When the tax file is loaded, the system clears the screen and returns to the Payroll
Main Menu Bar.)

Step 6—Display the Calculate Taxes screen, register your software, then verify that the
message “Updated: 12/23/15” appears.
From the Payroll System Transactions Menu, select Calculate Taxes. The following message will be
displayed: Tax File MUST be registered before Jan. 31, 2016. Do you want to register it now?
Warning: If you select No, you must return to this screen before January 31, 2016 and register your
Payroll System.
If you select Yes, the system will display another screen. Make the appropriate entries.
At TAX YEAR, accept the displayed year, 2016.
At SERIAL #, enter the Serial # from your ABS Payroll Tax Registration sheet or registration email.
At REGISTRATION #, enter the Registration # from your ABS Payroll Tax Registration sheet or
registration email.
After you select OK, the following message should appear in the lower right corner of the screen.
Tax tables for: 2016
Updated: 12/23/15
If the message “Tax tables not recognized” appears—or if the first line of the message is not "Tax tables
for: 2016"—STOP! Call ABS immediately at (978) 250-9600.
Step 7—Print your quarterly and year-end reports.
Print the following quarterly and year-end payroll reports:
 Quarterly Earnings Report
 State Quarterly Earnings Report
 State Monthly Earnings Report
 Optional, you may want to print the Employee Earnings Report, the W-2 Control Sheet to verify
the types of pay/deductions that will be printed on 2015 Form W-2, any special state quarterly reports,
and any other payroll reports you want to archive.
Step 8—Close the year.

Step 9—Verify 2016 FICA, FUTA, Medicare, State and Local wage limits and rates. (See
Appendix A for currently known changes for 2016.)
IMPORTANT:
If you followed the previous steps in order and installed the update diskette before
you ran the year-end close, the system will automatically update the FICA and Medicare wage
limit/percent fields for 2016.
 If you closed the year, then installed the update diskette, you must manually enter the FICA and
Medicare limits and percents for 2016.
 In each case, however, you must manually enter any State and Local Tax Authority changes that
affect your company's payroll.
Before you run your first payroll for 2016, you will need to make sure that Federal, State and Local tax
authority rates are correct. (See Appendix A.) You may also need to add or change employee deduction
codes and pay codes for your company's 2016 payrolls.
 Update tax authorities. Following the instructions in your Payroll System User's Manual, use the
Maintenance—Tax Authorities function to update all tax authorities that affect your company's payroll.
FEDERAL TAXES.
Verify that the Federal wage limits and tax percents for both FICA and Medicare
have been updated for 2016 as specified below. If they are not updated, you must enter them.

necessary for State SUT and SDI percents and maximums. (See Appendix A.)
LOCAL TAXES.
Use Tax Authority Maintenance/Change, then enter any changes necessary for Local
taxes. (See Appendix A.)
 Update deduction codes and pay codes. Use Deductions Codes and Pay Codes Maintenance functions
to make any change to the deduction codes and the pay codes your company will use for 2016 payrolls.
Step 10—At your option, either print 2015 W-2s or run your first 2016 payroll.
You can perform the following functions in the order which best suits your company's needs.
2015 W-2S. If you need to process employee W-2s before you run your first 2016 payroll, follow the
"Running 2015 W-2s" instructions. (See page 5.)
2016 PAYROLLS. If you need to run a 2016 payroll before you print 2015 W-2s, follow the "Running

Note 2: If you use Form Type 4 (the 4-Up Laser W2 Form), you must use compressed print. That is,
you must set your laser printer to 8 lines per inch and
12 characters per inch.
Tip…Adjusting the W-2 Forms in your printer. Whether you use laser or pin-fed W-2 forms, you
should always print a sample W-2 form to determine where your printer begins to print on the form. If you
need to make any adjustments, follow these instructions.
# OF LINES TO ADVANCE. (For laser forms only.) You can use this field to specify how many
lines you want the system to skip—from the top of the form—before it prints the first line on the
form. Most laser printers begin printing 3 lines down from the top of the form. The default for this
field is 3. If you need to begin printing higher (closer to the top of the form), enter a smaller number
(0, 1 or 2). To begin printing lower (further down from the top of the form, enter a larger number (4
or 5).
# OF COL(UMNS) IN. (For both laser and pin-fed forms) You can use this field to adjust the
column at which the information will begin to print on the W-2 form. The default is 5 which is the
standard starting column for most printers. If you need to begin printing at another starting point,
you can enter the appropriate number (0 to 4) to move the starting point closer to the left margin, or
6 to 8 to increase the distance from the left margin.
Reminders…
If you need to print your company's State Unemployment Tax ID on employee W-2s, you must select Yes
at the PRINT SUT ID IN BOX 14? field.
If you need to print employee IDs in Box a on employee W-2s, you must select Yes at the PRINT
EMPLOYEE ID IN BOX A? field.
Printing 2015 W-2s
1. Instructions for printing W-2s are listed in the "Filing Reports" chapter in your user manual. Please
refer to the section titled "Employee W-2s."
2. Optional. After you verify that the printed W-2s are correct, you may run the Purge History
function to erase 2015 W-2 data.
Reminder: You can run W-2s multiple times, if necessary, any time prior to running the Purge History
function.

About the W-2 Boxes
Detailed information about the data the Payroll System will print in each numbered W-2 box—plus
an updated list of the pre-defined pay types and deduction types—are listed at the end of this packet
in Appendix B.
Running Magnetic Media W-2s
If you have completed Steps 1 through 9 in the order listed in these instructions, you can generate the
magnetic media file for reporting 2015 W-2 information.
1. The Set function.
Before you can create the W-2 magnetic media file, you must use the Set function to record information the
Social Security Administration (SSA) needs to know about your company. This includes the name of a
person within your company whom the SSA can contact should they experience any processing problems
with your file, how best to contact that person—by E-mail or by postal service—and a code that indicates
who prepared the information in your file. Once you enter this information, you can edit it, if necessary.
2. The Build function.
The system will gray out the Build function on the menu bar, until you complete the Set function. When
the Build function is active, you can then use it to create your W-2 magnetic media file.
Instructions for using the Set and Build functions are listed in the "Filing Reports" chapter in your Payroll
System User's Manual. Please refer to the section titled "Creating the W-2 Magnetic Media File."
Reminders:
You will only access the STATE field if you selected Yes at the INCLUDE STATE? field.
If you want to include all states, leave the STATE field blank.
If you want the file to include information for a specific state, enter the 2-letter abbreviation for that
state. If you do this, the file will include all employees who have state taxable wages or state
unemployment and disability wages for the specified state.
At the KIND OF EMPLOYER field, you will use the default None Apply unless your business falls
into one of these four categories. If it does, open the list box, then select the appropriate description:
Federal Government
State and Local Government
Tax Exempt Employer
State and Local Tax Exempt Employer.

Reporting 125 Plan Dependent Care Deductions on W-2s
Important: In ABS Payroll, there is a deduction type (1) for employee contributions to a 125 Plan and
another deduction type (D) for employee, pre-tax deductions for dependent care.
This notice will not apply to your company if...
 you have a 125 Plan under which all type 1 deductions are for medical disbursements;
 you track all dependent care deductions under deduction type D.
However, if you have a 125 Plan defined as deduction type 1—and if any portion of the employee’s
deduction for the 125 Plan is allocated for dependent care—the system will not print the annual deduction
amount for dependent care in Box 10 on the employee’s W-2.
If you have not been tracking dependent care as a type D deduction, you must follow these steps to insure
that the system prints the correct amount for dependent care in W-2 Box 10.
Step 1—Set up deduction type D(ependent care).
If all—or a portion—of the 125 Plan deduction is currently defined as deduction type 1, you must use
Deduction Maintenance to set up a second deduction type—type D—for the dependent care portion.
(The type D deduction is the amount that will appear in Box 10.)
When you set up this deduction, make sure that the following fields in the “Deduct Before Taxes”
column—plus any other fields applicable to your state or locality—are set to Yes:
HIW
FICA
FEDERAL WITHHOLDING
STATE WITHHOLDING.
Step 2—Enter a “correcting check” for each applicable employee.
If you have not been tracking employee dependent care deductions as type D, you must create a
correcting check for each employee who has a dependent care deduction—before you print W-2s—so
that the correct dependent care deduction amount appears in Box 10.
You do this by using the Manual Checks/Correct function.
The correcting check must decrease the employee’s type 1 deduction for the tax year and increase the
employee’s type D deduction for tax year.
Example: Let’s assume an employee contributed $1,200 under your company’s 125 Plan. Of that
amount, $400 was for medical and $800 was for dependent care. If you have been tracking the 125
Plan amounts as a type 1 deduction, the total deduction amount for the tax year will be $1,200.
Therefore, your correcting check should...
 decrease the medical amount by $800 ($1,200 less $800 = $400, the medical portion)
 increase the dependent care amount by $800 ($1,200 less $400 for medical = $800).
As a result, W-2 Box 10 will show $800—the correct dependent care deduction for the tax year—rather
than $1,200.

Reporting Employer Contribution to HSA on W-2s
Important: In ABS Payroll, there is a Pay Type (7) for employer contributions to an HSA (Health Savings
Account) Plan. If applicable, these contributions will be reported in Box 12 of Form W-2.
Generally, employer contributions to an eligible employee's HSA are not subject to Income, Social
Security, Medicare, or Railroad Retirement taxes and will not affect amounts otherwise reported in Boxes
1, 3, and 5 of Form W-2
However, employer contributions to an employee's Health Savings Account (HSA) must be reported on the
employee's W-2.
If your company contributes to an employee's HSA, you must follow either Step A or Step B below to
insure that the system prints the correct amount for the HSA contribution in W-2 Box 12.
Important. Do not complete this process until you have loaded the 2016 Tax Update. You must complete
the process before you complete Step 9 of the Year-End Instructions—Close the 2015 Payroll Year.
Step A
If you have been tracking employer HSA contributions for 2015 under a separate Pay Code which is not
coded as Pay Code Type 7, use the Pay Code Maintenance Change mode to display that Pay Code record,
then change the Pay Code Type to 7.
Step B
If you have made employer HSA contributions, but have not been tracking them in ABS Payroll, you must
add a new Pay Code for the HSA contributions with 7 at the PAY CODE TYPE field. You must then use
the Manual Checks/Correct function for each employee who has received an employer HSA contribution to
enter the YTD employer contribution. You must do this prior to closing the 2015 payroll year.
About the Boxes on the 2015 W-2 Form
This section lists the information your ABS Payroll System will print in the lettered and numbered boxes
on the 2015 W-2 form, and the pay and deduction types the system uses to calculate the result the system
prints in each box.
Box a— Employee's social security number
This number comes from the SSN field (Tax Screen) in the employee's record Employee Maintenance.
Box b—Employer identification number [EIN]
This ID comes from the Employer ID field in Tax Authority Maintenance for the FG (Federal
Government) tax authority record.
Box c—Employer’s name, address and ZIP code
This information comes from the ABS Activation record for your company.
Box d— Control number
The ABS Payroll System does not print a Control Number in this box..
Box e—Employee's first name and initial/last name/suffix
This information comes from the employee's record Employee Maintenance.
Box f—Employee's address and ZIP code
This information comes from the employee's record in Employee Maintenance

entry at the EIC FLAG field in the employee’s record is Yes or Both, the EIC payments made to the
employee prints in this box.
Box 10—Dependent care benefits
This is the amount of Dependent Care Benefits paid or incurred by the employer. It is the sum of all
Pay Type E (dependent care benefit).
Note: If you have any Section 125 dependent care deductions for employees, the amount for those

Box 11—Nonqualified plans
The purpose of this box is for SSA to determine if any amount reported in Box 1 or Boxes 3 and/or 5
was earned in a prior year. It shows the total amount of distributions to the employee from a
nonqualified deferred compensation plan. It is the sum of all Pay Type N.
Note: In previous years, distributions for a Section 457 Plan (Pay Type 4)—for non-government
agencies and for state and local agencies—were reported in Box 11. All Section 457 Plan distributions
for state and local agencies only must be reported on Form 1099-R.

When do you print the Quarterly Reports?
You must print all quarterly and all year-end reports immediately after you run your last payroll for 2015,
after you load the 2016 tax update and before you close the 2015 payroll year. (See Step 8.)
Running the Quarterly Reports
1. To access the State Quarterly Reports function (after installation), display the Payroll Menu, select
Filing, select Quarterly State Forms, then select the appropriate option:
A thru K
L thru N
O thru Z.
2. Move the highlighter to the state for which you want to generate a report or create a magnetic media file,
then select it.
3. The system will then display the data entry screen for that state and position the highlighter on the first
field of the Print or Build screen, depending on the state.
Notes:
If you need to use a required function, such as Set, before you can generate a state quarterly report, the
system will prompt you to do so.
If the screen has an Align button, you should take time to print an alignment pattern—before you print the
report—to make sure your forms are properly aligned.
State-by-state instructions follow.
