Currently, our 403(b) and 403(b) Roth Contributions aggregate as they should utilizing the tax status codes, 02 and 17 on the PR05. 457(B) Roth has a tax status of 04 but not a corresponding after tax status code... it must be left blank to get the appropriate after-tax calculation; this does not aggregate toward the maximum contribution. Has anyone experienced this issue

3 Replies and 1471 Views LP198 - can it be sent without usage?  1471  3 Started by  Mary Porter I would like to hear from anyone using LP - we have our PTO usage coming over to the GL on the PR198 as debiting the PTO Payable Accrual account. Then the LP198 comes over as a debit to the PTO Payable Accrual account. So the account is getting hit twice for usage. How is anyone doing this so that usage only hits the account once We just went live on 1/1 of this year and not sure that we got the best advice from our consultants during setup. Any help would be appreciated.
