About Deduction and Liability Rates

There are two rate/amount fields for each record in the PR Deductions/Liabilities form.

When creating deduction and liability codes, use the Rate/Amount #1 field to indicate the primary rate or amount that the system will use when calculating a rate-based deduction or liability. The system also uses this rate as the resident rate for some state and local taxes. The Rate/Amount #2 field is the secondary, or "non-resident" rate/amount used for some state and city tax routines. Typically, you will only use the Rate/Amount #1 field.

Note: The system determines residency by checking whether the posted to state or city matches the information in the employee's static file.
