How to setup/update the tables in PowerChurch Plus

To setup/update PowerChurch Plus with the state tax tables shown in Figure 1 above, select the Accounting menu, Payroll, Setup, then Maintain Tax Tables.

Click Add to enter a new table, or use the Find/Locate buttons to select an existing OH tax table to update. When adding a new table, you will be prompted for the type of tax table you're adding. Select State: Ohio. For each table, enter the following information:

  • Description: Enter a unique name to identify the tax table (for example, "Ohio State Tax").
  • Tax type: The type of tax in which this table applies. In this instance, select OH State Tax.
  • Withholding allowance: Enter the amount for one withholding allowance.
  • Deduction multiplier: Enter the amount from the far right column in the tax table. The calculated deduction amount will be multiplied by this number.
  • Round tax to nearest whole dollar: If required, check this box to round the calculated tax amount to the nearest whole dollar.
  • Annual Rate Table: Click the Annual Rate Table tab. From the Optional Computer Method document, enter the figures from the Taxable Wage column on the left followed by the decimal from the Withholding Deduction column on the right as a percentage for each bracket. (for example, .005 in the first bracket is 0.5%).

When you are done, the screen should look like this:
