Hi kevin,

Thank you for providing the link of the workaround. You can set it up as deduction items. Then, assign the same deduction to your employees. Let me show you how.

To set up a deduction:

  1. Clickt Workers, select Employees.
  2. Choose the employee's name.
  3. Select Edit beside Pay.
  4. In section 4, select Edit.
  5. From the drop-down menu, select Deductions/contributions.
  6. Select the deduction type and category.
  7. Enter the description and amount.
  8. Click Ok.

To assign a deduction item: 

  1. Click Employees.
  2. Select an employee from the list.
  3. In the Deductions and Contributions section, click Edit.
  4. Select Add new deduction or contribution.
  5. In the new window, select the name of the deduction you'd like to add.
  6. As applicable, define the per-pay period deduction and annual maximum for the deduction you're adding. Do the same for your company's contribution.
  7. Click Done.
