Social Security wages missing from NC magnetic media


Payroll was reconciling quarterly reports and found that the NC state magnetic media social security wages did not match the FED information. They were able to determine what information is missing, but now I need to know how to correct the NC state mag media.

We have election workers who are allowed to make up to $1400 before any FICA taxes are withheld. Once the YTD value of election pay reaches that limit, the entire YTD amount of election pay is taxable. Our consultant set up a wage type so that this YTD taxable election pay will automatically be transferred into a FICA taxable wage type. For all FED tax forms, the SS wages are correct; it is ONLY the NC state magnetic media that is incorrect (does not include the SS wages for the election pay over the limit). Does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do to correct this? The field on the mag media layout contains /703 and /403, but since there is no NC /703, those wages are missing on the tape. The employee's remuneration is correct; it is the tax reporting that is incorrect.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
