Several of my 90 Minds Group members have encountered an issue when processing Sage 100 payroll for year-end 2016. Specifically this error appears when transmitting W-2 information via the e-Filing / Aatrix integration within Sage 100.
The message appears as below:
If Box 13-Retirement is checked, then box 12D or 12E or 12 AA or 12 BB must be greater than $0.00 [ x error(s)]
According to Aatrix, the error is not a fatal error but is displayed to warn that data is being entered in a manner inconsistent with IRS guidelines. There are no plans to fix. Please check with your tax advisor about the proper entry fo the data. If advised by your tax advisor you should be able to skip the error and continue processing by clicking “Continue without correcting”
