|EFFECTIVE DATE:||January 1, 2009|
|SUMMARY:||Closing expenditure sub-object code 2698 and establishing expenditure
sub-object code 1430 for military pay differential
Effective January 1, 2009, a change is being made to military differential payments per Pub. L No 110-245, the Heroes Earnings Assistance and Relief Tax Act. This act requires military differential pay to be recorded as wages that are exempt from FICA but are subject to Federal taxes. Effective January 1, 2009 military differential payments must be processed through payroll rather than through STARS. To accommodate this change, expenditure sub-object code 2698 will be closed effective December 31, 2008 and expenditure sub-object code 1430 established. The new expenditure sub-object code description is as follows:
This change will be reflected in the Uniform Expenditure Classification of Expenditure Sub-object Codes filing (PPM No. 7,002) on the Division of Accounts and Reports web site: http://www.da.ks.gov/ar/ppm/.
