This week’s tip is a recap of the upcoming TRS changes.
The TRS rate change for the next year payroll needs to be updated. The only change for the 2019-2020 school year is the District Rate will be updated to 7.5%. You will do this in next year payroll by changing the school year to 2020. This will be done under Tables>Tax/Deductions>TRS Rates.
The State Minimum salary schedule was sent out earlier along with instructions which are available on our website and should be installed in next year payroll under Utilities>Install Salary/Tax Tables. Please be sure you use the updated State Minimum salary schedule that Tandi sent out on July 15th.
One more thing to be reminded of is the CEI rate change to 1.0 starting in September. You will need to refer to the email Tandi sent out regarding this and the budget for 2019-2020. This is under Tables>District HR Options.
