The problem may not be Mac vs Windows. I think Quicken may have removed the Paycheck Wizard. You can still enter it as a split transaction but without the benefit of adding pre-tax/post-tax deductions and having it distribute amounts accordingly.
Probably the biggest (perhaps only) advantage of the Paycheck Wizard is that it subtotals the various types of line items in the paycheck.So there's a subtotal for Earnings, a subtotal for Pre-tax deductions, a subtotal for post-tax deductions and a subtotal for Taxes.Depending upon the arrangement of one's paycheck, it makes eyeball verification of the amounts pretty easy.
Can I use Quicken for Mac in the same way that I used Quicken for Mac 2007
