ACS Release Notes

Released January 5, 2023

This release includes updated Federal payroll tax tables for 2023. We recommend loading this update AFTER processing 2022's final payroll. This ensures 2022 tax updates apply for your final payroll of the year.

Federal and State Tax Updates

We've updated Federal Tax tables to version 22.12.01.

Many states had tax table changes as well.

We've updated state tax tables for Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Vermont.

Other Financial Updates

We've updated Form 1099 to include the following changes:

  • The form is now continuous use, which means the form no longer has dates. ACS puts the date on these forms.

  • State tax boxes have changed to 16, 17, and 18

  • The on-form instructions have some minor wording changes.

Our calculations include the Social Security Administration's latest changes. The maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax has increased from $147,000 to $160,200.

Colorado Wage Withholding

ACS Financial Suite now calculates Colorado wage withholding based on an employee's Form W-4 or Colorado Form DR 0004. New employees may submit the IRS' current Form W-4 or the new Form DR 0004.

If an employee submits Form DR 0004, select the option and enter any extra withholding on the Taxes tab in Add/Edit Employees. This information also displays on the Employee Master List.

Indiana Adopted Child Exemptions

Effective October 1, the state of Indiana added an adopted child exemption.

We've added this field on the Taxes tab in Add/Edit Employees. It displays below Personal Exemptions and Dependent Exemptions, which are the other two deduction types for Indiana.

This exemption also displays on the Employee Master List.

Abundant Giving Receipt Changes

If you use Abundant for eGiving, we've added a footer to the giving receipt.

Per MasterCard's standards, when your contributors receive their giving receipt, clear instructions on how to cancel are listed in the footer of that email. This only affects recurring gifts.

A link to giving history is also included in the email footer. This is helpful if contributors want to cancel gifts.

SpeedCheck Import

When importing transactions from SpeedCheck to ACS, you can now select a date range.

In addition, we've corrected SpeedCheck to access transactions faster.

Removed LifeTouch Export and Import

We've removed the LIfeTouch Import and Export from ACS People Suite.
