How to check which version of QuickBooks Online Payroll you are using

How to check which version of QuickBooks Desktop Payroll you are using 


As the holiday season approaches, keep in mind that weekends and federal holidays are non-banking days. Meaning, if payroll is submitted on a non-banking day, your direct deposit will be drawn from your account the next banking day.  You can check this article to see how federal holidays will affect your direct deposit.

Because Online and Desktop Payroll have different dates, there are 2 editions of the January calendar below.  Please refer to the top of each calendar to make sure you are looking at the correct version - Online or Desktop.

* These dates are only if you have opted to have us e-file for you.  You can double-check by verifying your QuickBooks Online Payroll automatic tax payments and form filing status here.  


If you have opted out of e-file: 

- W-2 forms will be available for you to print and file January 1

- You must print and postmark your W-2 forms to your employees by January 31


If you have opted out of our automatic tax payment and form filing - January 27 deadlines:
- If you use our e-file service, you must E-file your W-2s before 5:00 PM PT so they can be processed by January 31, 2022.
- Review and file federal forms and make tax payments, such as Forms 941/944 or 940.
- Review and file state forms and make tax payments
