How do I setup a field to garnish a dollar amount from an employee's wages?
You can setup a garnishment field on the User-Defined Fields screen. Open the Payer in AMS Payroll. At the AMS Payroll Menu, select Payer>Payer Edit>User-Defined Fields. Double-click on the first blank line. Enter in a field name (for example, Garnish) and select the appropriate settings. You can also select Examples from the Edit screen to view pre-set User-Defined Fields screen.
