Sage Abra Suite customers in Florida: this is an alert about an unemployment tax change for the State of Florida. If you are not a state of Florida employer, you may disregard this alert.
On March 2, 2010, the Florida Legislature and Governor Charlie Crist passed and signed into law unemployment tax relief for all Florida employers retroactive to January 1, 2010. The new law reduces the FL Unemployment (FLUI) taxable wage base from $8,500 to $7,000.
The First Quarter 2010 tax update for Sage 2010, we recommend you manually update the taxable wage base for the FLUI tax code in your Sage Abra system immediately without waiting for the First Quarter update.
The FLUI taxable wage base can be updated in your Sage Abra system tax table using the following steps:
- From the Activity Center select Payroll, Rules, System Tax Tables
- Select the FLUI tax code
- Select the more to detail the tax code
- Change the Wages Not Over column to 7,000.00 on the row marked with an end date of 12/31/2099
- Apply the change
