As departments are reviewing their funds to make sure all Commitment Control issues have been resolved they may notice a new salary account code on their reports. Account code 518005 was added as of July 1, 2017 to cover payments for Other Taxable Compensation. This account code covers payments made for Awards-Cash (H60), Bonus (H62), Automobile Allowance-taxable (H80), Housing Allowance-taxable (H82), Technology Reimbursement-Taxable (H92), and Moving Expense Reimbursement-Taxable (H94). Special combination codes are not being set up so the 101 form should continue to be filled out as before and the account code will automatically be updated if one of the above earnings codes is used on a payment.
Another item to keep in mind while reviewing funds is any potential leave payout for terminating employees. The HE Leave Accrual report has been replaced by several queries to help departments determine employee leave balances and the possible financial impact of a payout. To find these queries please refer to the HR/Payroll document on Absence Management Queries located here: https://www.ndsu.edu/fileadmin/hr/docs/TLAB/Absence_Management_Queries.pdf
