the posting period selected for the application was different than the posting period selected for the
payment.
Workpapers CS
We have addressed an issue that caused the application to close unexpectedly when an engagement
binder was printed to file more than once.
Reports


We have added Medicare 2 variables to the following payroll reports.
 Depository Totals
 Employee Check Record
 EFTPS Phone Payment Worksheet
 Payroll Tax Summary - Condensed
 Payroll Tax Summary - Detailed
Note: If your firm has modified the predefined version of a report, an updated version will not
overwrite your existing report. If this is the case, you will need to make the necessary changes to your
customized report manually or you will need to restore the latest predefined version using the Report
Designer. To do the latter, select the report from the Reports list pane in the Report Designer and
then choose File > Restore Default.
We have addressed an issue that caused the Accruable Benefits report to display incorrect
information when an employee’s pay period spanned multiple benefit years, in certain circumstances.
Report Designer and Layout Designer
We have added Payroll > Check > Taxes > Federal > FICA > Medicare 2 variables to the variable tree.
General – Payroll


We have moved the Do not create zero liabilities checkbox from the Payroll Information tab of the
Setup > Clients screen to the Agents tab of the Setup > Vendors screen. The application displays the
checkbox only for tax agents for which the Filing required when no payment due checkbox is marked
in the Main tab of the Setup > Tax Agents screen.
We have updated the 2013 workers’ compensation limits for the following states: CA, DE, MI, MN,
NC, ND, NJ, OH, and PA.

status.
We have addressed an issue that caused the application to calculate the tax liabilities in ACH credit
files based on the liability period of the last check entered rather than the liability period of the most
recent check date.
Illinois. We have addressed an issue that caused the application to exclude employees from second
quarter Illinois monthly wage reporting files if they reached the SUI limit in the first quarter.
Louisiana. The application now limits the Account Holder Name field in the Form L-1 electronic file to
22 characters.
Nevada. As of July 1, 2013, the application will calculate the General Business Modified Business
Tax only when quarter-to-date taxable wages reach $85,000.
New York. We have addressed an issue that caused the application to display incorrect amounts on
Line 4 of Form NYS-45 in certain circumstances.
Pennsylvania locals. We have addressed an issue that caused the application to incorrectly display
or print some page units of the employee listing form for Form HAB-LST_LST-1 in certain
circumstances.
Utah. We have updated Form 33H to make the Contribution Due field editable.
