I love your software so I bought a license on 8/20/2010.
I have a computer repair business and will let my business customers know about your software.
We were very impressed with the software so far. ezPaycheck gives us exactly what we need.
Wow, you are amazingly fast! I thought it would take a while to get this up and running again but that is as close to as instant customer service/response as you can get!
Thank you again,
Great. We do a lot of check printing for our clients and used another check printing software which was not flexible at all. Yours is very simple and kind of what we were looking for, so thatís why I am trying to give feedback so you can do it even better.
All I can say is WOW!! I know that I made those suggestions and you had said something about a gift. I honestly didn't think you would take it to this level. I want you to know that is it so nice and( I say that from the bottom of my heart) cause you know that most people would not have even remembered that they said anything about that and would have charged me for the upgrades. So I want to Thank you and the people of Halfpricesoft.com. If for nothing else than for renewing my faith in people and companies. Tell the bosses that everyone deserves a raise. WOW ! Again I want to thank you all. You all have made a friend today.
Your new Friend
Michael (but all friends call me Mike)
Thanks a bunch. You are the first one in a business that has ever been really nice like that.
I have to start by saying that you folks are amazing. I've been in the software business for over 20 years and I've never heard of such a quick response to a customer inquiry. I am really impressed and send you kudos or high fives or whatever is current now (fist bumps?).
Really great customer service.
Thank you for your prompt and excellent support. Not many customer-servicers have the capacity to look beyond getting a dollar today, I think most would have said, "well, we have his money, and it was HIS choice to buy 2010-only rather than wait until the bug was fixed, so case closed". They would keep my dollar today, but never get another one from me again. You, on the other hand, now have my loyatly (though perhaps not much for me to buy from you, haha)
If you don't have a sincere desire to help others, you should not be in "CUSTOMER service", eh?
Thank you again.
ezCheckpersonal worked out great! the Logo option really makes a difference on the checks. i went ahead and purchased this version.
ezPaycheck worked great! Thank you so much...
You have already given me 1000% more customer service than company I am changing from.
I appreciate that.

Withholding Formula >(Massachusetts Effective 2013)<
Subtract the nontaxable biweekly Thrift Savings Plan contribution from the gross biweekly wages.
Subtract the nontaxable biweekly Federal Health Benefits Plan payment(s) (includes dental and vision insurance program, and flexible spending account - health care and dependent care deductions) from the amount computed in step 1.
Add the taxable biweekly fringe benefits (taxable life insurance, etc.) to the amount computed in step 2 to obtain the adjusted gross biweekly wages.
Multiply the adjusted gross biweekly wages times 26 to obtain the gross annual wages.
Note: Do not withhold tax on employees who claim one or more exemptions while making less than $8,000 annually.
Determine the employee's current retirement deduction amount:
a. Multiply the year-to-date state taxable wages (not including current wages) by the
employee's Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) rate (e.g., 7.65 percent for social security, 1.45 percent for Medicare-only) to obtain the previous year-to-date FICA contribution.
b. Add the previous year-to-date FICA contribution computed in Step 5a to the employee's year-to-date contribution to all other retirement systems to obtain the previous year-to-date retirement contribution.
Note: If this amount is greater than $2,000, the current retirement deduction amount is zero. Omit Steps 5c through 5e and proceed to Step 6.
c. Multiply the current state taxable wages by the employee's FICA rate (e.g., 7.65 percent for social security, 1.45 percent for Medicare-only) to obtain the current FICA contribution.
d. Add the current FICA contribution computed in Step 5c to the employee's current contribution to all other retirement systems to obtain the current retirement contribution.
e. Add the previous year-to-date retirement contribution computed in Step 5b to the current retirement contribution computed in Step 5d to obtain the new year-to-date retirement contribution.
Note: If this amount is greater than $2,000, the current retirement deduction amount is $2,000 minus the previous year-to-date retirement contribution (e.g., $2,000 minus the amount computed in Step 5b).
If this amount is less than or equal to $2,000, the current retirement deduction amount is equal to the current retirement contribution computed in Step 5d.
Subtract the current retirement deduction amount computed in Step 5, if applicable, from the current adjusted gross biweekly wages computed in Step 3 to obtain the current adjusted gross biweekly wages.
Note: If the employee 's current retirement deduction amount computed in Step 5 is zero, the current adjusted gross biweekly wages is the amount computed in Step 3.
Multiply the current adjusted gross biweekly wages by 26 to obtain the current adjusted gross annual wages.
Subtract the following amounts, as applicable, from the current adjusted gross annual wages computed in Step 7:
a. If the employee claims one exemption only, deduct >$4,400<.
b. If the employee claims more than one exemption, deduct $1,000 times the number of exemptions plus >$3,400.<
Multiply the result of Step 8 by 5.30 percent to obtain the annual Massachusetts tax withholding.
Subtract the following tax credits, as applicable, from the annual Massachusetts tax withholding computed in Step 9:
a. If the employee claims head of household, deduct >$127.20<.
b. If the employee and/or spouse is blind, deduct $116.60 for each blind exemption.
Divide the annual Massachusetts tax withholding by 26 to obtain the biweekly Massachusetts tax withholding.
