WV Withholding Tax Update


West Virginia's governor recently signed a bill reducing state income tax and the WV State Tax Dept issued new withholding tables.  I didn't see this update on the payroll tax update report for the update installed yesterday (3/21/23) or today (3/22/23).  Any idea when we can expect the WV Withholding to be updated in Sage 100?

    I looked this up on the West Virginia Tax site and have submitted to our Tax Group.  Since this update was just signed on 3/16/23, it is possible it will not make our 3/23/2023 tax update.  Most likely it will be the next one targeted for April 2023.

    Tax Updates that our Tax Group has received are listed in Sage 100 with the date expected to be released.

    1. From the Launcher, Select Help
    2. Select Product Documents
    3. Open Payroll Tax Update Guides
    4. Click on Sage 100 Payroll Tax Update Guides for 2022 and later.
    5. Select Payroll Tax Changes for Tax Year XXXX.  This is the year effective, so if effective 12/15/2022, click on 2022 not 2023.
    6. Sort by clicking on the column Headers. NOTE: I find it easier to change "Show 100 entries" first.

    AKING- I received this reply from a support case. So I am assuming there will not be an update in April 2023:

    "Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Can you send us a link or send us the documentation for West Virginia lowering the state taxes? I know you mentioned Bill 2526 but we need to have legal documentation in order to effect a change.
    Would you please send any documentation that you have showing when this has gone into effect and any rate change, etc.
    Please understand that there are so many states and cities and counties that have tax changes constantly and sometimes the only way we know about it is when our customers bring it to our attention. Thank you! We appreciate your diligence in bringing this to our attention.
    Keep in touch!

    Not a good look for Sage 100 Payroll...

    Thank you so much for letting me know.  I am astonished.  I thought we were supposed to rely on Sage for proper payroll processing and withholding and not the other way around. Upside down

    Sage relies on getting the notifications from the states.  When the states don't comply, they don't know to update the tax tables.

    LINDA KR, there still has not been a WV withholding tax update in Sage 100.  I have copies of the new tables from the WV State Tax Dept website. The revision date is March 2023. Can I email those to you or someone at Sage so that the software can be updated?  If so, please give me the contact info.  Thanks!
