E-filing NM unemployment taxes



I asked about setting up e-file for the NM unemployment taxes, and I was then able to send it.  It says it sent in Quickbooks, but when I called the NM Workforce center, they did not receive it.  I noticed that for two other payroll systems in Quickbooks that you have to assign Quickbooks as a TPA for NM Workforce center.  I have desktop payroll enhanced, and I didn't see anything in there for my Quickbooks.  Any suggestions?  (I sent in the report on Tuesday, and NM Workforce center still does have not seen anything from Quickbooks on their end.)

E-filing NM unemployment taxes

I’ve got the information you need, @Teft2022.

You’ve mentioned you were able to send your report after asking about setting up an E-file for New Mexico (NM) unemployment taxes. Can you share the process with me?

At the moment, the E-file and E-pay options for the state of New Mexico are unavailable in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Enhanced. You’ll want to submit your tax forms and payments manually.

And yes, you're correct. You can register your company for electronic payment services by setting up Intuit as your Third Party Agent (TPA). This way, we can pay and file unemployment on your behalf. However, it's only possible for QuickBooks Online Payroll and QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Assisted or Full-Service users. Please see this reference: Enroll in New Mexico e-services.

I recommend contacting our support team to verify your situation. Our representatives have enough tools to check its status and how your report is sent. Here’s how:


  1. Open your QuickBooks account.
  2. Go to the Help menu.
  3. Select QuickBooks Desktop Help, then click Contact Us.
  4. You can enter “E-filing NM unemployment taxes,” then select Continue.
  5. Choose a way to connect with us:
    • Start messaging with a support expert.
    • Get a callback from the next available expert.

I am glad that I did the report by hand into the NM Workforce center website.  Line number 9 was incorrectly calculated by Quickbooks.  


It seems like Desktop Quickbooks and payroll have some issues that need to be addressed from a technical/software aspect.


Thank you for your help.
