The change from Sage on the NY Health Care Workers Bonus is scheduled to be on the 10/27/2022 deployment of the Payroll Tax Update.
That tax update will reportedly include a NEW Earnings Tax Rule, -800139, New York Healthcare Worker Bonus. An Earnings Code will need to be setup for this Type of Bonus Payment using that Tax Rule.
That earnings code(s) will be used to pay the employee the amount calculated and approved in order to keep it separated from other earnings. Use the Tax Rule Inquiry to determine what taxes this tax rule will be subject to.
The Employer/Employee will be responsible to properly determine eligibility and bonus requirements when submitting for approval on the appropriate forms from New York State. Aatrix has stated they will not be supporting this program due to state form requirements.
