Data Change Request: Change Tax Location

PayServ Manual


Data Changes are changes that relate to an employee's Job Data. These changes are separate from an employee's appointment, removal, position or pay rate change transactions. All Data Changes must be submitted through the request process.

The Tax Location determines what rate the taxes are taken from the employee’s pay check based on the employee’s work location.

Helpful Hints

  • All Data Change requests must be submitted on the Job Requests1 page.
  • The Action Reason automatically opens the required fields to process a Data Change transaction.
  • Some Data Changes may be automatically approved based on meeting the editing and approval criteria. Data Changes will only be automatically approved if the Effective Date of the change is after the latest Effective Date on the Job Data record and before the Effective Date of any open request.
