I tried to do what you suggested and an error comes up on the form that tells me that QuickBooks only stores one version of the 941 tax form and that I cannot print last years version of the form. So even when I put in that I want to print the first quarter of 2018, the form that comes up is the first quarter of 2019.
The current quarter and year are the only available version of payroll tax forms in QuickBooks Desktop. If you need to file an outdated 941, you’ll need to get the form directly from the IRS. Then you can run a payroll report for the first quarter of 2018 to get the right information. Manually enter the information in the 941 form then send it manually to IRS.
Don’t hesitate to reach us again if there’s anything else you need.
