d. Deduction End Date - Enter the last date of the pay period that you want the deduction to stop in the Deduction End Date field. (For example, if you want the deduction to come out of an employee's 2016BW01A paycheck, but not their 2016BW01B paycheck, the deduction end date should be entered as 1/9/16 (the last day of the 1A pay period). If you enter any other date within the 1A pay period, the deduction will not come out of employee's 1A paycheck. A deduction end date is not required if you want the deduction to be on-going or if you enter a goal amount in the Goal Amount field.
e. Deduction Rate or % - This field is left blank unless required based on the selected Deduction Calculation Routine. This field is not often used.
f. Flat/Addl Amount - This field must be entered when using the Deduction Calculation Routine of Flat Amount. Enter the dollar amount to take each pay period in this field.
g. Goal Amount - If there is a limit for the deduction, enter it in this field. After this goal amount is met, the deduction will stop taking.
When setting up a new deduction, do not enter a value into the Current Goal Balance field. This field displays the total amount taken to date from the employee's pay for the deduction. The system updates this amount automatically after every payroll confirmation. When the goal balance equals the goal amount for the deduction, the system stops taking the deduction. Thus, if you fill in this field upon entering the new deduction, it will not deduct either the correct total amount or at all.
