These taxes are collectively known as Medicare payroll taxes.

Sage Payroll Tax Update Released for Sage 50

The Sage 50 payroll tax update was released on September 13, 2017. The update includes important changes for 2017 and updates to the wage reporting requirements. Among other things, this includes a change in the definition of wages that must be reported on Form W-2 and Forms 1099-MISC.

Under new regulations, beginning with the taxable year 2018 wages will no longer include tips or non-wage compensation, such as commissions. This change affects all businesses that use Forms W-2 and 1099-MISC to report employee income. Beginning in 2021, wages will also no longer include bonuses, profit sharing, or other non-wage compensation exceeding $1,000 per individual.

If you are using forms W-2 and 1099-MISC to report your employees' income for 2017, you will need to make changes to your paperwork by February 28, 2018. Most companies should be able to handle these changes without any additional expense; however, if your company is not prepared for this change there are some optional steps you can take to help minimize the impact.
