             A W-4 in 8 Easy Screens

These instructions work best with the PC-PAYROLL
W-4 Module "up" and ready to go.  Making a W-4 is
the easiest way to learn this program.

On a FEW machines, an F-Key may give no response.
In those cases the equivalent numeric key works
(1 = F-1, etc.).

TO BEGIN:  At A> type W-4 for the Main Menu.

SCREEN 1) - Main Menu:  Type "F1" (or "1").

SCREEN 2) - Employee Selection Menu:

    * Access an existing record by typing its
      assigned number.
    * Create a new record by typing in an
      "unused" number.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< NOTE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
   The remaining screens were designed as an
   interview. When all queries answered, the
   result will be a completed W-4 Certificate.

SCREEN 3) - Enter (or Update) a Record:

    * Name, Address, SSN.  (F1 thru F6 initiate
      the various input prompts: .....  Type in
      data; press ENTER.)
    * All records may be scrolled by menu
      options A, P, or N.
    * Type menu option C when ready for SCREEN 4.

SCREEN 4) - Filing Status/Second Job Worksheet:

    * 5 SETS of queries (F1-F5) make up this
    * Toggle through choices on each F-Key to
      select appropriate status statements.  The
      number of choices per F-Key varies (2-7).
      Make sure to toggle through all choices per
      F-Key before selection.

SCREEN 5) - Personal Allowances Worksheet:

    * 6 queries (F1-F6) make up this section.
    * All queries toggle (0/1) except F4.
    * F4 initiates input prompt (...).  Type in
       numerical data; press ENTER.

SCREEN 6) - Deductions and Adjustments Worksheet:

    * 3 queries (F1-F3 plus HELP (F10).

SCREEN 7) - Two-Earner/Two-Job Worksheet:

    * 2 queries (F1, F2) IF APPLICABLE.
    * If not applicable, press "C" to continue.

SCREEN 8) - The completed W-4 Certificate

    * Select "payroll frequency" (F1 toggles
      5 choices).
    * F2; type in "period wages/salary"; press
    * F3 prints substitute W-4 Certificate.

The W-4 Certificate is now complete.  30 such W-4
Certificates may be stored within this W-4 module

                Other Good Stuff

From the Main Menu of this W-4 Module:

  * F-2 activates a one-screen tax estimator.
    This program contains the 1990 Federal (income
    and FICA) and State withholding formulas for
    all 50 states!  This will enable you to
    estimate withholding tax by pay period AND
    annually.  This info can be used to avoid
    penalties for under withholding and for
    general planning purposes.

  * F-3 summons a 3-screen help file that should
    be read even though you're now an ace
    W-4ologist. It contains info about prompts,
    command lines, facsimile W-4 forms (not IRS
    approved), and other such helpful stuff.

  * F-4 summons a 3-screen library of info about
    W-4s and the process of employer withholding.

  * F-5 summons info about this W-4 module.

  * F-6 is about the real good stuff, PC-PAYROLL,
    the parent program of this W-4 Module.
