On my Quickbooks online homepage, Tasks keep showing up for payroll tax items that my accountant completed for me. How do I get rid of these tasks? When I hit file now it doesn't go away and they have already been filed manually by my accountant. It isn't anything I needed to record a payment for.
Your Payroll items:
W-2, Copies A & D (year 2019) filing File Now 47 days overdue
ND 307 (Year 2019) filing File Now 45 days overdue
W-2, Copies B, C & 2 (year 2019) filing File Now 45 days overdue
When I click on File now, it doesn't let me Archive these forms. It lets me View or print the form and alerts me that the filing period is too far in the past. So if the product team is working on this will the tasks just disappear once fixed?
You're getting the message that the filing period is too far from the past because today's date is way beyond the 2019's due date.
You can ignore the task for now while the issue is being worked on. If you can see an X or a Trash icon, click on it to remove the reminder from your Dashboard. You can also use this article as an additional guide: Manage Your To Do list.
I'll revisit this thread to share an update as soon as we receive them from our engineers.
