State correction in US tax infotypes


Dear Payroll Gurus!

Please help me to correctly resolve the following issue:

US employee was recently hired and by mistake assigned to the wrong state (Utah instead of Colorado) in infotypes 207, 208, 209.

The payrol has run for him and all the postings went through except for the Third-party transfer of State Unemployment Tax (the posting document ended up wih an error as the Vendor is not setup for Utah Unemployment Tax).

Now, if we correct the infotypes 207, 208, 209 starting from the hire date, it will calculate retro in the next period and will generate positive amounts for Colorado Unemployment Tax but negative amounts for Utah Unemployment Tax, right? And my guess is that the posting document will have an error again as the vendor is not setup. Also, we have a cap set for retro taxes, and Colorado taxes are probably higher than Utah.

What are your thoughts of that? Is there any other way to correct this error?
