My QB Accountant Desktop 2018 says that the 2020 941 form is not yet available. Any info on when it will be available?
Let me share some information about downloading the latest payroll tax forms, chris159.
When accessing the 941 forms, your accountant may encounter a pop-up message that said: "You are about to create a form for the 2020 tax year, but the form currently installed in QuickBooks Desktop is for the 2019 tax year". It's possible the latest payroll update is not yet installed in QuickBooks.
It could be also the form is not yet available for the 2020 tax year. The new annual forms are available with the payroll update in mid-December and the new quarterly forms will be in mid-March.
Cases like this, we recommend getting the newest payroll tax table in your software to stay up to date. This way, you can run the 941 forms for the 2020 tax year.
Click Employees on the top menu.
Tick Get Payroll Updates.
Select the Download Entire Update checkbox.
Hit the Update button. Then, a window appears when the download is complete.
