Friday Feature - Commenting on Taxes

It was Benjamin Franklin that said, "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Yet even in its certainty, taxes are not static. The government changes them. The employee changes them. How is a payroll tech to keep track of the changes?

Of course, the majority of records connected with paying employees through Escape Online are date based and that is half the battle. But, keeping track of "why" you made the change and explaining that change to an employee (even when the employee is the one who requested the change!) can tax a person's memory (pun intended!).

That is why we added a comment to the employee's tax record. Check it out!

Comment in Tax Record
Comment in Tax Record

You can enter up to 60 characters to record why a change was made: a change in marital status, an added tax amount, or even a recording of a lock-in letter from the IRS.

Plus, you can search for employees by these comments. All you have to do is enter a word, and Escape Online will display all employees with that "word" in the comment of their tax record.

Now that's a certainty!
