CDM+ 9.0 and the 2011 Payroll Tax Holiday

Federal Payroll “Tax Holiday” for 2011

A federal payroll “tax holiday” for 2011 was enacted into law on December 17, 2010. This tax break affects the employee’s portion of FICA, reducing it from 6.2% to 4.2%, while the employer’s share remains at 6.2%. Detailed information of the implications to employers can be found at the IRS website at,,id=232590,00.html?portlet=7. This shift in FICA calculations will require a significant change in the CDM+ Payroll program.

CDM+ 9.x Conversion Time

CDM+ 8.1.x to CDM+ 9.x Conversion Time

Upgrading from some earlier versions of CDM+ (CDM+ Pro 8.1.x and CDM+ 8.1.x) to CDM+ 9.x will require a conversion of your data from one database server (OpenBase) to another (Postgres). CDM+ 9.x will perform this function automatically but it will take some time to process your records. As a part of the setup assistant in v9.x you will be prompted to select which data files you wish to convert. If you have multiple databases, you have the option to convert all of them in one session or to do them individually.
