How do I set up employer paid FICA?
AMS Payroll can calculate the Employer Paid FICA.First, setup a User Defined Field named XFICA. At the AMS Payroll Menu, select Payer>Payer Edit>User-Defined Fields. Double-click on the first available blank line, enter XFICA in the Field Name, enter "N" in the Net Deduction and the Add to Gross Pay, and enter an "X" in the Exempt from FICA, Exempt from FUTA and Exempt from SUTA. Please note: The adjustment percentage and maximum taxable wages are defined as zero because the program has these figures built-in. Please do not adjust this. When entering a check for the employee: Enter the Net Pay amount.Select Employer Paid FICA from Pay Rate. Enter a checkmark (or -1.00) for XFICA, Social Security and Medicare. Click CALC and each of these fields will calculate the correct figures. NOTE: This feature requires that the employee be setup as a 942 or 943 employee on the employee's Status Information screen.
