How do I include income from an 83b election in my employee's W-2? The form was filed on time with the IRS. Everywhere we look says that this income should be included in the W-2, but I cannot figure out how to do this in Quickbooks. Does anyone have experience with this?
Thanks for reaching out, @Thor1. Happy to provide some insight here.
At the moment, QuickBooks Online doesn't support the ability to populate the 83b election. If one of your employees has elected for this, you'll need to file this outside of QuickBooks Online at the moment. I've forwarded this idea to our Product Development Team for further review, as I think it'd be beneficial to you and other businesses.
Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm here to help. Have a good one!
Thank you. If we can’t account for the 83b election in the W-2 through Quickbooks, how would we do it? Presumably we have to report our end of it (precluding him from just reporting it as other income). Thanks again!
It's best to consult a tax professional or the IRS to help us identify how we report 83(b) Election in the employees W-2 Form. I have the IRS link here where they posted their Telephone and Local Assistance numbers.
