Sage 100 – Payroll Upcoming Changes from Sage and Federal Government.

NOTE: We advise that you consult with your certified Sage 100 ERP consultant before making any changes to your Sage 100  system. If you don’t currently work with a Sage 100 consultant, contact us, call 760-618-1395 or email us at and we are available to help.

Upcoming US legislative changes will introduce several payroll reporting requirements. Here’s what you need to know about these requirements, and how we are updating Sage 100 Payroll to help you stay compliant.


  • The changes described below will be implemented only in the latest version of Sage 100 Payroll that is compatible with Sage 100 2018 and later.
  • The January 2020 tax table update (TTU) will be the final TTU released for Sage 100 version 2017. No further TTUs will be released for version 2017.
