|Summary:||Payroll Calculation Tool has been updated to reflect 2014 rates|
The payroll calculation tool was developed to assist employees and agencies with creating paycheck models outside of the SHaRP payroll system. Employees can use the tool to calculate what their paycheck amounts will be when they use different tax and benefit option scenarios.
It is strongly encouraged that agency staff refers retiring and terminating employees to the tool when they are trying to determine what tax and benefit options the employee should use for their final paycheck. The tool will also be helpful to employees wishing to review the impact to their paycheck of the increased employee KPERS contribution rate which takes effect with paychecks dated on or after January 31, 2014.
The Payroll Calculation Tool can be accessed through the State Employee Service Center website at http://www.kansas.gov/employee/. Once the page comes up, select the Payroll Calculation hyperlink on the right side of the screen, under the Employee Self-Service heading.
The calculation tool contains three tabs. The first tab is the Information tab. This tab provides an explanation of what the tool is used for and other important information. The second tab is the Data Entry tab. This tab is where the user will enter all of the necessary information for the calculation. Refer to the instructions by each yellow box for additional information on the data to enter. It is helpful to have a paycheck stub or screen print to use for reference when entering data on this tab. After all the data is entered, click on the green box ‘Click here to see your result’ link at the bottom of the page. The third tab is the Estimated Payroll Calculation tab. This tab will display all the results of the calculation after the user clicks on the result link on the second tab.
The Office of Systems Management, Payroll Processing Team has made the necessary updates to the tool to reflect 2014 rates.
