Misc Factor

The Misc Factor field on the PR Employees form, Filing Status tab.

This field is for U.S. users only.

If you selected the Override Misc Amount #1 check box and entered an amount in the Misc Amount #1 field, enter a factor here.

Note: This factor is only used by a few routines, such as Arizona and New York City. It is used to store information needed for tax calculations.

Entry here is determined by the routine being used. For information about what should be entered here for the tax state, see About Payroll Routines.

Federal 2020 W-4s

If you are entering information from a Federal 2020 W-4, leave this field blank.

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.
