  1. Go to your employee’s page

  2. At the bottom of the overview under "Modeling", select one of these options:

    • Bonus Tax Percent Calculator
      Calculate withholding using supplemental tax rates on special wage payments (not applicable in AZ, CT, DE, HI, KY, LA, MA, MS, NJ, UT, WY, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico)

    • Bonus Tax Aggregate Calculator
      Calculate withholding using the last paycheck amount on special wage payments

  3. Run the calculation and then click "Save to history"
