  • Arizona:  Starting Jan 1, 2011 the state has removed all compensation requirements. Therefore, all rates are available for all compensation levels. The Required Rate option is available and the rate is unchanged from the previous tax update.  If you have any employees using this option please adjust it to the selection on their Arizona A-4 Form or you may have employees that are underwithheld. The Required Rate option is being adjusted to the Default Rate.  The Default Rate is 2.7% of gross taxable wages.

Changes to the Quarterly Wage On Disk(ette) Function
The Payroll Quarterly Wage On Disk(ette) function has been modified to reflect the reporting specification changes made by Florida, Indiana, and Kansas.
