Check e-filing or e-payment status


#5 - Can I delay my tax payment?

You can delay your payment until the due date as determined by the IRS and your State taxing authority, so if you need a little extra time it pays to check and see what they have listed as the date and time.

Just make sure you get those payments filed on time, as you may be subject to late filing penalties and interest if you miss the cutoff date.

Did you make your payment outside of QuickBooks Payroll?

If you did, all you have to do is manually enter the payment so it is recorded in QuickBooks.

Step 1 - Take a deep breath and let it out slowly
Step 2 - Check out the steps here and verify that you are fully set up to file electronically
Step 3 - Resubmit your payment
Step 4 - Dance a little jig and bask in that sweet sweet afterglow



#8 - I got a tax notice in the mail, what should I do?

We've got your back, no worries! A tax notice may feel scary but we have a great article that goes over the most common notices and how to handle them.


#9 - I got a notice saying I overpaid my taxes, now what??

You can resolve most overpayments by yourself - as long as they fall under one of these categories:
- Federal overpayments (940, 941, and 944)
- State unemployment insurance (SUI) overpayments
- SIT overpayment (for some states)

If you have an overpayment that doesn’t fall into one of these categories, then you will want to check out our article about resolving tax overpayments. (It also goes over the steps on how to resolve the ones you can on your own.)
