@GlobeTradeGroup  Thank you for joining community.


I can help you find the funds. To start, have you checked the correct bank account?  Sometimes customers with more than one bank account will look for funds in the wrong bank account.


Have you checked your email for communication from our Payments team?  There are times when we encounter problems trying to credit/debit bank accounts.  When we are unable to deposit funds, customers will be emailed to inform them to contact their bank to resolve any problems.


If you still can't find your payments, please contact support.  Our agents can look further into your account to determine where your funds are.


This link will take you to the QuickBooks support page, where you can select your service and the proper contact channel: Contact Support

Hi there, @rashid123.


You still have the option to cancel the direct deposit that you made. In doing this, make sure that it is before 5 PM PT and two banking days prior to the paycheck date.


For example, if you've scheduled an employee's paycheque for direct deposit on Friday, you can delete it until 5 PM PT Wednesday. If you wait until 5:15 pm Wednesday, it's too late: the money has been transferred.


To shed more light regarding cancelling a direct deposit in QuickBooks, please see this link: Learn about the deadlines for cancelling direct deposit paychecks.


However, if you don't have the option to delete the paychecks, I'd suggest reaching out to our Customer Care Team. They have tools that can check your account and guide you with the process.


Here's how you can contact them:

  1. Click on Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Hit on the Contact Us button.
  3. Enter a brief description of the issue in the What can we help you with? box.
  4. Press on Let's talk.
  5. Select on Get a callback.
  6. Key in your contact details, then tap on Confirm my call.

Know that I'm just a few clicks away if there's anything else you need. I'll ensure you're all set. Wishing you all the best in everything that you do.

How do I file W-2s with the IRS now that I missed the electronic cutoff?

I need a live person

First, I just spent 30 mins trying to get to a place to contact someone for support. HUGELY unfriendly system and extremely frustrating and waste of time.


1. How do I file W-2s now that I've missed the electronic filing deadline?


2. I need to make a dummy P/R with same deductions for an employee (myself) for my PPP loan filing for 1Q when I was not using your service--started in April. How can I go about that? I have from April on but I have to report 12 mos. 

QuickBooks Team

I need a live person

I know this wasn't an easy process for you, daddyO.


Let me share some insights about filing your W-2 form. Sending your W-2 forms to the IRS is an important payroll task at the end of the year. If you missed filing electronically, you can manually file the  W2 forms.


Here's how:


1. Select Taxes, then Payroll Tax. 

2. In the Forms section, select the Annual Forms links. 

3. From here you can select to print both employer and employees copies of your W-2s and w-3. Employer Copies: Form W-2 (W-2 Copies A&D), Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements (W-3), Employee Copies: Form W-2 (W-2, Copies B, & 2).

4. Choose the appropriate filling period from the dropdown. 

5. Select View to open Adobe Reader in a new window.

6. Select the print icon on the Reader toolbar. Then select Print again. 

Note: If you are reprinting because your employee lost or didn't get the original W-2, write REISSUED STATEMENT on the top and included a copy of the W-2 instructions.


 If you're referring to setting up a dummy employee for your second question, you can follow the steps in this video on how to create one: How to set up QuickBooks Online Payroll and add an employee. 


However, you can only backdate a payroll for 6 months. You can reach ask our Payroll Support Team to create an adjustment to report the last 12 months of deductions.


To connect with our Customer Care support, follow the steps how: 


  1. Click the Help menu in the upper-right hand corner.
  2. Type in "Talk to a human", then press Enter.
  3. Look for I still need a human and click on it.
  4. Click Get help from a human or Contact Support Team.
  5. Select between Send a messageSchedule an appointment, or Get a callback.
