Calculate a payroll

Performs calculations for taxes, benefits, and deductions for an unprocessed payroll. The calculated payroll details provide a preview of the actual values that will be used when the payroll is run.

This calculation is asynchronous and a successful request responds with a 202 HTTP status. To view the details of the calculated payroll, use the GET /v1/companies/{company_id}/payrolls/{payroll_id} endpoint with include=taxes,benefits,deductions params.
In v2023-04-01, show_calculation=true is no longer required.

If the company is blocked from running payroll due to issues like incomplete setup, missing information or other compliance issues, the response will be 422 Unprocessable Entity with a categorization of the blockers as described in the error responses.
