Pay stub canonical descriptions reference

Because pay stubs don't follow a standard format in the same way that tax forms do, different pay stubs may offer their own names for the same concept. Ocrolus is able to link common terms identified on pay stubs to a canonical description. Below details, the library of terms found on pay stubs that Ocrolus recognizes and maps to a canonical form field value.

If we couldn't map a paystub entry to one of the aforementioned canonical names, then its canonical_description field in the returned object will be null. If you believe such an entry should have an alias or its own canonical description, please contact us with details about your use case.
