Section 125 Code DD Sage Abra Suite Q4 2011 Payroll Update provided you with the ability to define the data items needed for accurate tracking and reporting of employer-provided healthcare. Choosing 'Section 125 Code DD' as a Deduction Type inadvertently causes any Deduction set to exclude Section 125 to now include the deduction as the DD code is not seen as a Section 125 type. Changing the Deduction Type back to 'Section 125 Contributions' will allow other deductions to resume subtracting the deduction amount. Prior to 2012 year end, Sage will correct the application and allow for the 'Section 125 Code DD' to be selected for accurate W2 reporting for the entire calendar year 2012 A product update is available for Sage Abra Suite v7.8 or v7.9.
