The employee deduction for the Oregon Worker's Benefit Fund is unique, because the employee contribution is calculated as a rate per hour. The TKT Payroll 3rd Miscellaneous Deduction should be used for deductions that are caculated by a rate times total hours worked ( ie. Oregon Worker's Benefit Fund). The deduction can be switched to calculate times hours by selecting "Utilities" on the main menu bar. Click "Review Installed Settings" and change the 3rd Deduction Title in the lower left corner to "WBF". Check the yellow box below the 3rd Deduction Title. Click the "Save Changes" button.
The 2017 WBF assessment rate is $ .028/Hr. The worker's/employee's portion is only 1/2 ( $ .014/Hr ) of the assessment rate. Each pay period, the employee withholding amount is calculated by multiplying the deduction rate of $ .014 times the actual number of hours each employee works. When you setup each new Employee Record, the employee's payroll deduction rate of .014 should be entered in the box to the right of the "Deduction for WBF".
