Multiple Wage Rates

Employees who are paid at two different wage rates should be treated as two different employees in the Master Index (see page 20 and 59).

NOTE-- Goldenseal construction payroll software handles multiple wage rates very easily.

To combine the different hours in the Payroll Report, follow these steps:

1. Click in the taxable column in the first row for the employee.
2. Type an = (equal sign), then click in the Gross column of each row that includes hours for the employee.
NOTE: You may first have to choose Unprotect Document from the OPTIONS menu.
3. Click the Enter key. An excel formula has been created that will figure the employee's withholding at their total hours at all wage rates.
4. Repeat the same process for each row that includes the employee's hours.
