Using Desktop version with Enhanced Payroll. I want to verify that I have e-filed my W-2 forms with the SSA. I have not been yet set up to e-file with the IRS. (In process) But it says I do not need to register to file with the SSA. I choose to e-file the W-2s and it seemed to work. But I have no way to know that the info went to quickbooks and then on to the SSA.
I checked my tracking number in QB e-filing history and printed it. Then I received my confirmation email with a Different tracking number. Should I be concerned? I truly believe I only filed one time.
I'm here to provide some additional clarification on your question with filing W-2 forms electronically in QuickBooks Desktop.
The tracking number showing within the QuickBooks program is for internal tracking when e-filing forms. We use this to check the status of the forms filed within the system.
IRS also have tracking numbers to verify filings sent from individual and business customers. If you still want to reach out to the IRS E-File Help Desk for verification, I'm adding the link I recommend:
