GP 9.0 US Payroll FICA Round 2 has released!!

We are happy to announce that the always working Microsoft Dynamics Team has released the GP 9.0 Round 2 for U.S. Payroll Hotfix.

Please take note that the issues found on the reports after the release of the GP 10 US Payroll hotfix were fixed in this version and for GP 2010 which will be released hopefully in a few hours from this post.


Also Microsoft team has informed that there will be another release for GP 10 that will address a fix for the reports found on the earlier release, also will include the release of the Canadian Payroll (round 2) and some changes for the new T4A functionality as well some additional CSST functionality/change.


The round 2 2011 tax update (table) is already on the automatic server for all versions.  This is the last tax update supported for 9.0 and 9.0 SBF.

The Microsoft team has announced that they hope to release the 941 form change in March once IRS has the final form published.

Issues list from 10 site- all fixed on 9 and GP 2010
Check Register
When you have Direct Deposit employees the Direct Deposit Check Register will still show the incorrect amount for Employer FICA Owed.  You will need to print the Reprint Check Register (Reports | Payroll | Reprint Journals) in order to show the correct Employer FICA Owed amount.

941 changes
941 Preparation Report will be correct through 6e.  The rest will be understated.
941 Schedule B Preparation Report will be understated.  Report is taking Employee total times 2 instead of taking Employer amount.
Form 941 Schedule B will be understated.  Report is taking Employee total times 2 instead of taking Employer amount.
Federal Tax Liabilities List 941 amount will be understated. 
Form 941 change – we will release update when form changes are finalized by the IRS.
