    First of, all BSI tubs are to be applied sequentially (meaning you can't pick and choose which tub is applicable to your company).

    What you would need to do is to log on to BSI web site to get detail changes for each tub (i.e. which tax autorities have change on what dates). Based on that, you would find if there're employees in the company that may be affected by this change (e.g. if there's a rate change for state authority of 'TX' effective on 09/01/07, then you will need to see if there're ee residing in state of TX). Running payroll for these ee in simulation, and check if the taxes that should be affected by these tubs are calculated correctly or not.

      Thank you soo much for your response.

      We have just applied all the SAP tubs and they are on the same level as of BSI tubs now. My concern is only about the last year.

      They have not applied any SAP Tubs all last year and as I was checking I think atleast a couple new tax authorities or tax types were introduced in the previous year. So If i am understanding it correct, if i have ee's who fall under these tax types, then their new taxes wont be generated. Correct?

      Also, when you said impact might not be too bad for tax rate changes. So correct me if i am wrong, but as long as BSI or SAP tax dbase is updated, the tax rate changes are calculated correctly ?

      You think there is any way i can check for impact on last year's tax calculations. They want me to tell them if any ee's were calculated incorrect and if so how do we correct it. My concern is how do we determine which ee were effected during that period for which SAP tubs weren't applied?
