Here’s the one you’ve been waiting for: 2019 Legislative Patchset 30480508 has posted for Release 9.2 and Tax Update 19-E is now available for releases 8.9, 9.0, & 9.1. Tax Update Notes and Supplemental Docs for Release 9.2 can be found on Document 1917096.2.
There is a document included with the patch, it is Form W-4 2020.pdf. Read it. Everything you need to know is in that doc. Pay special attention to the discussion of Application Package PY_W4. It describes how you can set the date in App Designer so you can test as if it were 2020 already.
We did not deliver 1/01/2020 tax rows in these patches. We are posting Proof of Concept (POC) patches with a 12/31/2019 row to help with your testing. Customers on lower releases should have received the POC and password. Customers on Release 9.2 can download the POC via Patch 30490849 and retrieve the password from our Payroll Hot Topics Document.
The POC delivers a script to update the State Tax Table entry for State = $U with a row with Effective Date =12/31/2019. This script can be used to test product modifications delivered in Tax Update 19-E to implement the new Form W-4 for 2020 and related U.S. Federal withholding tax changes.
The script delivered in the POC patch is for testing purposes only. This script should NOT be applied to production databases. The withholding tax rates in the table update provided in the script delivered with this patch are from the preliminary draft version of IRS Pub. 15-T, and are not actual 2020 withholding tax rates.
For additional information on using the script delivered in this patch to test the product modifications delivered in Tax Update 19-E to implement the new Form W-4 for 2020, see the following topics in the separate user documentation delivered with Tax Update 19-E Form W-4 2020 & Federal Withholding Tax Changes:
• Application Package (PY_W4)
• Paycheck Options Table
• Preparing for Testing
We will deliver the 2020 rows in the special Year-End patches.
You may have noticed that the IRS posted the final version of the W-4 Wednesday. We think we’re in good shape. We’re delivering Classic Self-Service W-4 for all releases (including 9.2) in these patches. Now that the IRS has finalized the form, we can get moving on the PDF version for Release 9.2.
