CHANGES
General – Payroll
We have addressed an issue that caused the Actions > Analyze Client Activity > Employee Earnings view
to be available for only those firms who are licensed for Accounting.
Payroll compliance
Affordable Care Act filing deadline notice. The IRS recently released Notice 2016-4, 2016-3 IRB,
which has extended the filing deadline of Federal Forms 1094-C and 1095-C. The new deadlines are as
follows:
 For the employee copy to be sent to employees: March 31, 2016
 For paper filing to the IRS: May 31, 2016
 For internet filing: June 30, 2016
Payroll form and filing information
The Payroll Form and Filing Information portlet on the Home or Firm dashboard provides the following
information: form approval status, form availability, available filing methods, form due dates, form filing
addresses, tax payment information (for all tax types), agency contact information, new hire reporting
information, payroll resources, and tax calendar (to view and print tax deposit due dates and form due
dates for all federal, state, and certain local tax agents). Click the applicable jurisdiction on the map to
display the federal, state, and local tax form information within the tabbed pages in the lower section of
the portlet. For information on working with this portlet, see Dashboard portlet: Payroll Form & Filing
Information.

Accounting CS Payroll, for live payroll processing
In addition to the changes made for general payroll features listed above for after-the-fact payroll
processing, the following issues have been addressed for the live payroll processing features specific to
Accounting CS Payroll.
We have addressed the following issues.
 An error occurred when previewing payroll checks in the File > Print Checks screen if the Separator
Page checkbox was marked in the Printers tab of the Setup > User Preferences dialog.
 In certain circumstances, when the Per hourly increment accrual method was selected (in the Main
tab of the Setup > Accruable Benefits screen) the application calculated accruable benefit items
incorrectly by including the number of hours worked prior to the eligibility date.
 An employee record could not be edited in the Setup > Employees screen when it included an
accruable benefit for which the Anniversary accrual method was selected (in the Main tab of the
Setup > Accrual Benefits screen) and the employee’s hire date fell on a leap day.
