|Within a manual accounting
system, payroll preparation is one of the most time-consuming and tedious tasks. However,
in-house payroll preparation can be a snap when you use the Sage MAS 90 Payroll module.At a
fraction of the cost and time of a manual payroll system or outside service bureau, the
Payroll module can apply employee earnings and deductions, automatically calculate
employee and employer payroll taxes, and print checks and vouchers complete with
year-to-date earnings and tax information. At the end of each quarter and year, the
respective payroll reports and W-2 forms required by various tax authorities can be
printed. All current Federal and State tax tables are included with the Payroll module,
and city or local taxes can be easily entered. Extensive information is maintained for
each employee, including birthdate, emergency contacts, review dates and comments, marital
and tax status, year-to-date earning and deduction amounts, as well as vacation, sick day,
and other benefit accruals. One of the powerful features of the Sage MAS 90 Payroll module is
its ability to process earnings for more than one tax jurisdiction (state or local) for
each employee per pay period, produce a single paycheck, and retain the information for
later disclosure on quarterly reports and W-2 statements.
