The 2024 Tax Update is Available for EBMS

You are now able to update your tax tables in preparation for processing payroll in 2024. This update includes:

  • Federal tax table updates
  • Some state tax updates
  • Report updates for forms W2 and 1099 (MISC, NEC & INT)

Note: We do not update State Unemployment rates since these vary per employer.

EBMS version 8.4 or newer is strongly recommended for the updates

Step 1: Download the Tax Update for Payroll

This update can be installed anytime. Other users may be logged in at the same time. Click Install Tax Update below to complete this step.  

If you have the EBMS Plus Managed Services: Steps 1 & 2 will be completed for you by the end of the day Thursday, January 4th. You can complete steps 3-4 after we have notified you. Note that tables will NOT be updated in EBMS until step 3 is completed. 

If your company does not have EBMS Plus Managed Services: continue with step 1.

These steps need to be repeated once for each company that you have setup in EBMS (it does not need to be on each computer).

Step 3: Close Payroll Year 2023 & Update Tax Rates

Close payroll year 2023 after the last pay date of 2023 is completed, by going to Labor>Close Payroll Year and following the prompts. If you have already closed payroll year 2023, and only need to update the tax rates, go to Labor>Utilities>Tax/Deduction Rate Update and follow the prompts. Repeat step 3 for each EBMS company you have.

*EBMS Plus clients will need to complete this step AFTER you have been notified that your EBMS Update has been successfully completed by your Plus service administrator. You will receive confirmation through an email from a member of our Client Services team.

Step 4: Verify Tax Rates

Print the Tax Rates report in EBMS to review all tax rates with your accountant.
