Because SDI and SUI rates vary from one company to another, Sage BusinessWorks uses the percentages defined in PR, Taxes, Activate States.
Record new SDI and SUI rates as follows:
Sage BusinessWorks calculates percentage-based taxes (OASDI, Medicare, SDI, SUI, and FUTA) on year-to-date taxable pays rather than the taxable pay for the current pay period. For more information, see article #17613 'How percentage-based taxes are calculated'
IMPORTANT: If you are changing the rate mid-year and/or you do NOT want the system to self-adjust the new rate going back to the beginning of the calendar year, see article in Related Resources #17783 'How to disable the self-adjusting feature for SUI (SUTA) and SDI'
