2017 940 tax payment will not go away

Hi there, @jb12345.

Thanks for reaching out to the Community. I can share some information on how to check if you’ve already paid tax liabilities to the IRS for 2016 and 2017.

You can log in to your Payroll account and run the Tax Payments Report to view your payment history. This report will show you payments that have been made for a given period of time. 

Here’s how to run the report:
1.    Click Reports and select Tax Payments under Employer Reports.
2.    Go to the Payment Date column and select the date of the payment.
3.    Change the date range if you don’t see the payment then click Update Report.

Approved payments will have an E-Payment annotation in the Check Num column. If the 940 payment you’re looking for is not showing on the report, I suggest contacting the IRS to verify if you’ve paid the tax liability manually.


Once payment is confirmed, you have to record it in QuickBooks. Here’s an article that will guide you through the process: Record prior tax payments


This information should help you remove the 940 tax payment showing on your To Do list.


Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you. Should you have any questions or clarifications, don't hesitate to leave a comment below. Wishing you and your business continued success.
