    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for your post. 

    You should find out exactly which government entities will receive the payment. Once you have identified the government groups receiving the tax – you should import that Institution Spending Pattern (S&L Gov’t Education, S&L Gov’t Non-Education, etc) and adjust the Activity Level to be the tax amount going to that institution.  These Spending Patterns include Labor as Events as the very last Events (notice sum of events is 1 when for these SPs), so that is all you have to do! 

    If you will be accounting for the tax impact as its own Activity, then you might not want it to be reflected in the other Activity’s Direct Output (or at least note if it is two place).

    Hope this helps and let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you,
