PDS 2022 Tax Tables Update

Since you can modify tax tables manually, you only need to load them if you haven't already made the required changes for 2022.

There are two types of tax tables you can load: the Federal Tax Tables for 2022, which affect everyone, and the tax tables for individual states. If your state tax tables have changed, load the tax tables to make sure you're current. PDS does not update local tax tables; you can obtain them from your local government.

Warning: Do not load the updated tax tables until you have completed your last payroll for December 2021. Doing so can result in the wrong amounts being withheld from your employees' paychecks.

Before You Start

You must be running the latest version of PDS Ledger/Payroll before loading the 2022 changes. On the File menu, click Check for Program Update.
CAUTION: Loading tax tables update alters data. Back up your data first.

Automatic Process

When a tax update is available, you're automatically prompted to install it when you print paychecks.
  1. On the Transactions tab, click Expenses > Print Paychecks.
  2. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to start the installation process.

Federal Tax Changes

The updated federal tables are contained in one file. Do not load this file until you have completed your last payroll for December 2021.

The following items have changed in the federal tax tables:
  • Federal withholding tables were updated. Withholding methods, the adjustment for nonresident alien employees, and information on using the new Form W-4P are included in IRS Publication 15-T.
    CAUTION: Beginning with the 2020 Form W-4, the new tables are to be applied to wages if employees increase their withholding to account for higher tax rates due to income from other jobs in their household (under Step 2). For information on how to apply the new table in PDS, see Enter Employment Information.
  • The social security wage base limit increased to $147,000.
The following remained the same from 2021:
  • For social security, the tax rate is 6.2% each for the employee and employer.
  • The Medicare tax rate is 1.45% each for the employee and employer.

For more information on these changes, see IRS Publication 15-T.

Note:

When you install the federal tables, the FUTA tax amount is automatically inserted.

If you need to adjust this amount based on the rules in IRS Publication 15-T, you must do so manually. On the Payroll tab, click Tax Setup > Federal Tax. Under Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA), enter the current rate and limit. If you aren't liable for FUTA tax, enter 0 for these.

State Tax Table Information

Some states don't use tax tables, and others use many. Look below to verify the tax table names you're using in the program. If you have questions about tax issues, contact your accountant.

State Tax Table Names

The following is a list of all the tax tables included with the install. The old tables are only replaced if the names are exactly as listed below. Go through your state tax tables and make changes where necessary. The names are not case-sensitive, but punctuation and spacing are very important.

CAUTION:

Make sure you use the appropriate allowance. For all new employees, you must use the new withholding form (DR 0004), where the deduction amount differs based on the number of jobs, number of children, and annual salary. Please refer to the Colorado Withholding Tax Guide (tax.colorado.gov) for details.

To handle this in PDS, we created a new table, CO -All. It uses the same rate as the other two tables, but all of the standard deduction and withholding allowance amounts are set to $0. You must figure out what the standard deduction should be for an employee, and enter it on their record. Go to Payroll > Employees > Employment Information. Under State Tax Options, enter the amount in the Other Exemptions Amount field for each employee. The program will use this amount as the standard deduction before applying the 4.55% tax rate.
