LA Payroll - Tax Deduction: How to enter Employer Portion

When payroll is processed, for every dollar taken from the employee’s pay for Social Security and for Medicare, a dollar is also taken from the employer.

So, if the employee check has 99.20 in Social Security, the employer must pay $198.40 (2014)

If the employee check has 23.20 in Medicare, the employer must pay $46.40 (2014)


If the customer fills in the bottom portion of the Tax Liability page with the vendor this money gets paid to, the payroll system will automatically create an AP Invoice with the employee + employer portion that is owed.
