Employee group Wisconsin for topic W6 on PR27
There is a new requirement for WISCONSIN W2's for 2015. We need to report employees with zero WI withholding tax. We have to map topic W6 in the PR27 to a created employee group. The employee group needs to find employees with a WI Tax Withholding deduction code, and also a WI tax withholding of zero. I can't seem to figure out how to set up this employee group. I can't find where to have an employee group look at the employee deductions so I can link the WI deduction code. I could run a query and find the employees and then create an employee group and put the employees in it per employee; but that doesn't seem very slick.  Read More...
