Payroll questions and U.S. payroll taxes

Hi all,

I have searched and searched but to no avail... has anybody created a payroll module for a U.S. based company? It seems that most of what I've seen is that companies are using payroll companies to process their payroll, but I haven't found anybody using OpenERP 7 for hourly employees with the U.S. tax system (it's not a flat tax rate).

It seems like what I may have to do, is create tax table in PostgresQL for federal, state, and local taxes, then reference those tables in the deduction calculation. I read one article on using the vendors/ or suppliers module and implementing a tax structure from that, but then again, those are still flat rates. I have to believe someone else has done this for the U.S. payroll system, and probably done it better than I could as I am fairly new to OpenERP. Any suggestions?


Any suggestions?

Hi Jim, I have the exact same problem! Let me know if you figured it out. In the meantime, I'm evaluating other software such as TimeTrex.
