Hi there, @Cindyj.


I'm here to help provide some information about why there are various numbers showing up on the Part 2 Line 4 of your 940. 


It could be one of your employees were exempted but at some point, their paycheck was not taxed. It's also possible that you have pre-tax payroll item mentioned by @QBsguru. You may refer to this article for more information about lines on the Form 940: How QuickBooks Populates The 940.


You can open your tax form worksheet at the bottom of the report to determine the possible reasons. Then you can make necessary adjustments on the income subject to tax.


Let me know how it goes. I'll be here to help if you have other questions.
