Below is more information about some of the fields used in this dialog:
- The value for "Federal Filing Status" can be Single, Married or Head of Household.
- The number of federal allowances should be taken from form W-4. The employee needs to complete Form W-4 so that the employer can withhold the correct federal income tax amount.
- The number of state allowances is usually taken from the state "Employee's Withholding Certificate" form.
- Pay Frequency (or payroll period) represents how often a payment of
wages is ordinarily made to an employee:
- Weekly Payroll: once per week or 52 pay periods.
