Dependent Amount

The Dependent Amount field on the PR Employees form, Filing Status tab.

This field is for U.S. users only, and applies to 2020 W-4s (effective January 1, 2020).

Enter the total annual dollar amount to be claimed as a dependent deduction. This is the total amount entered by the employee in Step 3 of Federal Form W-4 (2020); that is, the amount entered on Line 3.

Note: If you selected the W-4 Info check box in the PR Update Options section of the HR Company Parameters form, the system automatically synchronizes the employee and resource records when additions or changes are made to this field in either HR or PR. However, in order for auto-updates to occur:
  • you must assign a valid resource number to the employee in the PR Employees form;
  • you must assign a valid employee number to the resource in the HR Resources form; and
  • you must select the Active PR Employee and Exists in PR checkboxes for the resource in the HR Resources form.
If you do not select the W-4 Info checkbox, you must update this field manually in each of the HR Resources, PR Employees, and PR Employee Dedns/Liabs forms as applicable.
