39 Good To Know Enter, Save, Add. Enter, Save, Add…
Clear commands – Clear & Cancel Remove unwanted record - Delete, Save Find a record - Query Move backward or forward - Previous or Next Idle time 30 minutes – Oh, I’m knocked out & must log back in The function keys allow duplicate check entries so be careful if you use them. The “Clear” and “Cancel” buttons remove commands that are interfering with you reporting the data. If you do not click the “Add” button after inputting data, you are typing over what you have reported. You will end up with one check reported. If you are looking for a specific check or merchant, use the Query button. To navigate through your check data, use the Previous button to go backward and the Next button to go forward. If you take a break and are away from the program for 30 minutes, it will knock you out of the program. That is a security feature. Just log back in when you are ready.

40 Good To Know The tax year is Calendar Year, not Fiscal Year
December 31 is the absolute, last day for inputting check data!! Or was it December 32? Encourage your checkwriters to input the check data before December Are you planning on taking leave in December? You really need to have your input up-to-date by December 1. Something always happens in December - We take leave, you take leave, the merchant takes a vacation, system issues.

Only reportable data input Reportable data input for any $ amount ($600 threshold applies to the Tax Office) There is a $ threshold for reporting payments, exception $10.00 for Royalties. Our office is the final reporting entity; therefore, the threshold applies to our office, not yours. Input all reportable check data regardless of the $ amount.
