Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) April 15, 2012 -- New features in the latest edition of ezPaycheck payroll software enable users to include deductions unique to their state or local area, including California's State Disability Insurance tax.
Software developer Halfpricesoft.com (http://www.halfpricesoft.com) released the latest updates to ezPaycheck recently, including the new custom tax withholding feature. EzPaycheck has always calculated state and federal income taxes automatically to speed up paycheck processing for small businesses. The latest updates include a feature that allows for tax deductions unique to the state or local area.
EzPaycheck users in California specifically had asked for a feature that enabled them to incorporate withholding for the State Disability Insurance (SDI) tax. In response to that request, Halfpricesoft.com added the custom tax withholding feature which readily handles SDI or another other tax deduction specific to a particular state or local government.
"We wanted to meet customers' payroll needs and make ezPaycheck payroll software flexible enough for any U.S. business to use, but tracking down and adding support for every state and local tax would significantly increase to the cost of ezPaycheck," said Dr. Ge, founder of Halfpricesoft.com. "Our solution was to create a flexible, customizable tax withholding feature that allows businesses to include the local and state taxes. The solution provides flexibility while keeping the price affordable for even the smallest businesses."
