Print queue questions

QB Enterprise:  Payroll tax payments are made online, but the system shows the pay method as check:  I tried using EFTPS as the check number, but the system responds with message saying I need to use valid numbers.  Since when I clicked on the payroll tax payment line, it immediately recorded the tax bill as paid, but says it is in the print queue waiting to be paid ... interestingly enough, it shows EFTPS as the "check number" but won't print with that.


For the future, I understand I need to switch payment to electronic, but for immediate purpose, how do I get to the print queue to clear it of the check since nothing will be printed for this?  


Additionally, any tips, hints or watchouts will be appreciated.  This is my first exposure to QB payroll done internally.  Previously I did a very brief stint with QBO and Intuit processing the payroll and handling tax deposits, before then was with a payroll service.


I appreciate any help.  Thanks in advance.

Print queue questions

I'm sorry, I didn't clarify the question.  I don't want to print the check, unless I can print on blank paper using check # EFTPS or EFT.  


What I was really looking for was how to clear the print queue of things that were paid via EFTPS but the system thinks was to be printed with a check.  I'm not sure how to view what is all in the print queue and how to remove them from the queue if they have been "paid" via another method ... EFT or manual check.

Thanks for getting back to me with those details, Big-Al.


While there are a number of ways to customize and print your checks in QuickBooks Desktop, there isn't currently an option for using EFTPS or EFT as the number. With that being said, there isn't a way to differentiate things that were paid via EFTPS. I recommend submitting feedback to the Product Development Team for review. This can be done directly through your account in just a few simple steps.


Here's how:


1. Click the Help tab in the top menu bar.

2. Select Product Suggestion.

3. Choose Send Feedback Online.


Once your suggestion has been entered, you can take a look at the Firm of the Future site for future product updates that may include your recommendation. Feel free to reach back out if you have any other questions.
