Cancelling e-filing in Payroll

I thought I had asked this before, but I couldn't locate it via search, so I'll ask again ... or for the first time?

 

I had not used QuickBooks payroll in the past, and when I started here there are two separate companies for which payroll is done. One of them was temporarily done by an outside bookkeeping firm while the search was on for the position I eventually filled. The person doing the temporary work set up e-filing in the payroll, and the pin codes are nowhere to be found now, (it's a seasonal business), and I want to discontinue the e-filing.

 

What are the steps that I need to go through to terminate e-filing for the payroll in this situation? We are in a state with no state income tax, and the state we are in does not tax non-profit company payroll for the state unemployment fund, so it is only federal e-filing that I need to be concerned with. 

 

I will appreciate any guidance you can offer. Thank you in advance.

You can change your filing method for different forms from the QuickBooks Payroll Setup window.
 

Here's how:
 

  1. Initially, confirm you're up-to-date with your latest release and payroll tax table.

  3. Access the File Forms tab.

  5. Click Change Filing Method. This will open the QuickBooks Payroll Setup window.
