HIRE Act/Mid - Year tax update release scheduled

The US 2010 June Payroll Update has been released and should be installed in your Microsoft Dynamics GP Payroll. This is an important update as it includes the changes required for quarterly reporting by the Federal HIRE Act. Refer to the attached documents for detailed information; US10JunTaxR. The update includes:

  • All previous state and federal tax table updates for 2010
  • Federal Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act changes, which changes the 941 form changes and the Employee Maintenance window
  • Arizona tax table and code changes

In order to have the correct format for your first quarter 941 reports this update will need to be installed before the end of July.

If you need help with the installation, please contact Jim Williams at jwilliams@collinscomputing.com or 949-457-0500 x260 to schedule an appointment. Here are some things you need to know:

  • The Form 941 changes are effective for second quarter, 2010 reporting, so the patch needs to be installed in tie for you to file your report by the end of July
  • How many workstations have Great Plains installed? You can expect the upgrade to take about 2 hours for your server and an additional hour for each workstation
  • If you haven't done an upgrade before, or have some new workstations, prepare for the upgrade by installing Microsoft SharedView on your server and all Great Plains workstations before your upgrade appointment. CLICK HERE to download the free web conferencing program that will allow you to share your computer for the upgrade
  • When you set up your appointment, please let Jim know your preferred date to updated, the number of workstations to upgrade, and the name, email addresses and phone number of the person from your organization who will work with us on the upgrade
  • For our YMCA Payroll customers, a 4 hour work order will be set up. For all other customers, Jim will assess the time based on the needs of your system. The work order will need to be signed and returned at the time of scheduling

Thank you!
