SUTA Tax is Not Properly Calculated in Dynamics SL 2015 CU1

Posted by Kami Armes on October 19, 2016

There's a known issue in Microsoft Dynamics 2015 CU1 calculating State Unemployment Tax (SUTA) when a garnishment deduction is changed in the Review/Edit screen (02.030.00).  This issue (#36144) has been documented by Microsoft and will be fixed in Dynamics SL 2015 CU2.  In the meantime, if you're encountering this problem, here's a couple ways you can manually deal with the incorrect calculation.

  1. The first option is to uncheck the "Recalculate Subject Earnings" box when entering in a garnishment amount in the "Review/Edit" screen (02.030.00).

  2. Or, enter the garnishment amount in the Employee Maintenance screen (02.250.00) so it calculates correctly and does not have to be edited.

  3. The last option is to manually correct the SUTA deduction amount and subject earnings in the Review/Edit Check screen after it is recalculated incorrectly.
