Federal Unemployment Tax problem in 10.2.11.0

If you have employees who had tax withheld at the .008 rate but had not reached the $7000 limit before the rate dropped to .006 the software will withhold incorrectly.  It appears to key on a $42 total tax rather than a $7000 limit.  I have two employees in this category.  One reached $7000 in the last pay with $1210 in FUTA taxable income but since he had more than $42 in FUTA tax already no tax was calculated.  The other has yet to reach the $7000 threshold but the program calculated only enough FUTA to reach $42.

Hi,

I ran a test in the sample database and the program is calculating correctly. Note that for employee Ken Z. OToole the first two payrolls were at .008 and the last one was at .006. You will first want to confirm that you have v10.2.11 installed because that is the version which included the tax update for the rate change. If you confirm you are running the correct version, and are still unable to resolve the calculation issue, please log a support case for further assistance at 800-945-3278

They have to have $42 in
They have to have $42 in FUTA liability prior or after 6/30/11 to create the problem.

I just manually make the adjustments.  I have called support but unfortunately they always want access to the computer and because of  our firewall and being a government facility we are unable to give them access.

My reason for posting was to alert other users to the potential problem as they might be in for a surprise at year end.
