Can I get a copy of my 2017 form 940

Thanks for posting to the Community, @fulcher-mark.


Yes, you can get a 2017 copy of form 940 (Federal Unemployment Tax Act) in QuickBooks Online if you have filed this form successfully with your payroll account.


Let me show you how:

  1. From the Taxes menu, select Payroll Tax.
  2. Select View Archived Forms in the Annual Forms section.
  3. Choose the desired form 940 (adjust the liability period if necessary).
  4. Select View and then Print.


You can now have a 2017 copy of form 940. If this form wasn't archived, please follow these steps to archive the form:


  1. From the Taxes menu, select Payroll Tax.
  2. Select Annual Forms and then hit 940.
  3. Adjust/select the liability period.
  4. Select Archive and then View and Print the form.


If you wanted to print the W-2 forms' paper and ink requirements, please check out this article: Print W-2 Forms.


Please let me know if you have further questions. I'll keep my notifications open. Take care!

I want to make sure you get the best support for your issue, @fulcher-mark.


The View Archived Forms liability periods only extend back for a year or two. Since you’re unable to find the payroll form you’re looking for, I suggest contacting our live agents to archive it for you.


They can pull up your account in a secure environment and help recreate the forms in your Online Company. 


Here’s how you can get in touch with them:


1.  Sign in to your QBO account.

2. Go to Help at the top right.

3. Click Contact Us to connect with a live agent.


To ensure that we address your concern on time, you can check out our support hours.


Also, I'm adding ourpayroll tax website it provides articles that will help you prepare your payroll taxes in QuickBooks.


Keep in touch with me here if there's anything else you need. I'll be here to lend a hand. Take good care.
