Our Federal Unemployment 940 is showing as unpaid 357 days overdue. It has been like this for over a year, despite the fact we ePaid through QB at the start of 2018.

I have figured this out, for anyone having this issue.

Within the "Taxes" tab, there is an options to "Enter Prior Tax History".

If your tax payment isn't registering and you're still getting a reminder you can enter it in here for the relevant period and the reminder will disappear.

E-Paying is not filing the form.  If you only paid, then you didn't file, which is a different process.

Thanks for trying to solve this however the issue isn't with filing the form. It's the payment reminder that is the problem. We're still getting the payment reminder despite making payment. Hoping to find out how to manually close the Federal 940 reminder. When I try to open it it's just telling us we need to e-pay again. Very strange, must be a glitch with Quickbooks.

I completed our 2018 Federal 940 Unemployment return and payment on 01/17/19.  I received confirmation from the IRS within a few days that they accepted my return and payment.  When the "overdue" notice continued to display on my QBO homepage, I chatted with customer service.  I was told that this was a glitch and their engineering department was working on it.  Thank you to the users above who suggested entering a prior tax payment.  Since I'm confident the return and payment were accepted by the IRS, I just did this step and the erroneous "overdue" notice is now gone.
