  • Set default logic for the New Jersey State Income Tax, 34-000-0000-SIT-000, when no FILINGSTATUS or RATETABLE are passed into the Engine. The Default has been set to match the values from the Federal Parameters entered into the Engine. If the Employee has claimed Single or Married but withhold at a higher rate for Federal, the STE will use Single and use Rate Table A, If the Employee claims Married for Federal, the STE will use Married and Rate Table B. This is set to account for scenarios where an Employee has not submitted their New Jersey Form NJ-W4.
