How do I set up payroll additions?

To set up payroll additions, select the Payroll tab on the toolbar and select Employee Payroll Setup. Click the "Edit" button on the applicable employee you wish to add a payroll addition to, and use the "Next" button at the bottom right corner of the page until you reach the "Additions" page which will be number "2" at the top of the screen.

TaxSlayer Books online provides a variety of default payroll items preset with recommended GL accounts, W2 box assignments, etc. to assist in the setup of several commonly used payroll additions. To make any further changes to the particular addition, click the "Advanced" button.
