Dollarphotoclub_71491944

Payroll deduction is a tricky job. Payroll professionals have to wade through innumerable, elaborate laws that apply to different kinds of pay. If one kind of payroll deduction applies to an employee who lives in one state and works in another; another kind of payroll deduction has to be followed for an employee who works in a company which is situated in another state. Residence of the employee, the state in which the company for which she works is registered, the state of which an employee has citizenship and the state in which she works or stays –all these are important factors and parameters that go into a payroll deduction.

Further, federal and state deductions vary from one state to another. In addition, there are hierarchies of payroll deductions, meaning items for which deductions are to be are prioritized. Certain deductions take priority over others. All in all, payroll deduction can get very complicated if the payroll professional is not thoroughly familiar with all the rules and regulations, as well as the exceptions to the payroll.
