Employee Retention Credit

If I didn't get the Employee Retention Credit tracking set up in Quickbooks would if be necessary for me to complete the 941 manually so that I can claim the credit?  I assume I could complete the 941 manually for Qrt 2 and start tracking for Q3?

Employee Retention Credit

You should be able to override (fill in) amounts on the form within QB payroll.


Remember, if you received a PPP loan you xannot take any of these retention credits and wages under FFCRA are ineligible

Quickbooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll does not allow me to override any figure for line 21 or line 24.  How do you override?

Hello there, Sam1011,


To override the amount on the 941 form, you can follow these steps:

  1. Prepare your 941 form.
  2. Add the credit amount and the amount shown on the 941 form.
  3. Locate the line on the form, right-click the number and select Override.
  4. Enter the new amount.

Check this article for more details: Prepare and print Form 941, Schedule B, and Form 940.
