New Jersey Family Leave Insurance Tax
We are contacting you because our records indicate you are a Financial Edge user for [organization name] and reside
in New Jersey or a surrounding state. At the start of 2009, New Jersey implemented the Family Leave Insurance (FLI)
Tax for New Jersey residents. This tax change has been implemented in Payroll version 7.77, patch 7.
If you have employees who are New Jersey residents, you must follow these steps before calculating 2009 payroll:
1. Delete the existing 2009 New Jersey tax table if it is already created.
2. Download and install version 7.77 and patch 7.
3. Create a new state tax for New Jersey with an effective date of 01/01/09. Follow these steps:
a. In Configuration, Taxes, select State taxes from the drop-down list and click New Tax.
b. In the Add new state tax setting for drop-down list, select New Jersey and click OK.
c. Change the effective date to 01/01/09.
d. Select State, Restore Defaults from the menu bar.
e. Select 2009 from the Restore the drop-down list and click OK. This adds the FLI section to the taxes list.
f. Enter the remaining required information for each tax.
g. Click GL Distribution to enter withholding, liability, and expense accounts distributions.
h. Click Save and Close.
When calculating payroll, all compensation types subject to New Jersey SUTA will also be subject to FLI. If SUTA is
withheld for a New Jersey employee, FLI will also be withheld.
We are currently working on implementing FLI on reports and tax forms. We will notify you in Alerts, Payroll Post, and
in The Ledger blog when the reports and forms have been updated.
