Alabama Payroll Calculations


In 2009, Alabama started using a new calculation method for state withholding taxes, with two different deduction tables, plus a basic tax table. We already had several multiple-table calculation methods, but none that were exactly suited for the new Alabama approach.

Starting with Goldenseal payroll software version 4.4, we've added a Two Deductions/One Tax calculation method for Tax Items, which handles this new style.

Alabama has now jumped to second or third most complicated in the US (still well behind Connecticut, and about the same as Oklahoma).
