The link below provides a document showing the lastest Sage ERP MAS90,200,500 Supported Versions as of October 1011.
In essence the last date for payroll and year end updates is the end of life for those using payroll.
Recall that many states are issuing significant payroll withholding rules which might require a program update in order to continue processing payrolls. In most cases it is not apparent until the later part of December that a program update is going to be required.
Note that on most of these versions payroll updates end 9 months ahead of the official phone/email support.
