Here’s a quick reminder of how you can download the updated payroll tax tables for Sage 100 ERP (fka MAS90 and MAS200). The tax tables are only available online. Sage does not send out disks/CD materials any longer.
Luckily the process is very simple. Before you begin have everyone exit your Sage 100 ERP system (expect the process to take 15 to 30 minutes depending upon computer speed).
On December 17, 2012 Sage updated the payroll tax tables for Sage 100 ERP 2013. This update works on versions 18.104.22.168 and higher and contains the latest released income tax schedules from the federal and state governments. Be aware that late breaking tax news ofte requires that these tables are issued multiple times for updated legislation. Be sure to check with your Sage partner or tax advisor for advice on when to update the tables.
- Login to your Sage customer portal here. Sage partners login here. Then proceed to step 2
- Click this link to download the IRD for 2012 (required for .9% Medicare Surcharge in 2013) – version 4.30.18+ only. Older versions of Sage 100 ERP must upgrade in order to use the IRD (Interim Release Disk).
- Click this link to download the latest IRS payroll tax tables.
- Now install the IRD first, then the tax tables. You’ll click each of the files you downloaded and the actual install programs will be unzipped into a separate folder. Navigate into those folders to perform the IRD and then the tax table install. I like to use \MAS90\CONSULTANT\DOWNLOADS to store various Sage related downloads but you can put them anywhere you like.
Reminder: If you’re printing W2 forms in 2013 after you’ve closed your 2012 payroll year – you will need to reset your Social Security limits to the 2012 levels only while printing the W2. Once printed be sure to change the limits back to 2013 levels.
Reminder: Beginning with next year all form printing (W2, 941, 1099) happens through Sage Aatrix – eFiling. This is a free included component of Sage 100 ERP though it must be separately loaded to your local workstation(s) in order to work. Contact your Sage partner for assistance. If you are using Sage 100 ERP 2013 and cannot find your form printing menu – see this post Where Are W2 Form Printing, Quarterly 941 Printing or 1099 Form Printing In Sage 100 ERP 2013?
