I've read the instructions on how to print my w2:


  1. Select Taxes, then Payroll Tax.
  2. In the Forms section, select the Annual Forms link.

The problem is that there is no Annual Forms link under the Forms section.


How do I get the Annual Forms link to show up?

I've got you covered, @534199842.


This may be a browser-related issue, to fix this, let's run your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account using a private browser. Private mode prevents storing cache and cookies that might cause problems when running websites. 


Here are the shortcut keys you can use:

  • Google Chrome: press Ctrl + Shift + N 
  • Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift + N


Once signed in, attempt to print your W2 again. If this works, go back to your regular browser and clear the cache. This will remove the stored cache or cookies to refresh your browser. If the same thing happens, use another supported browser. It could be that the one you're currently using has a temporary issue with QuickBooks. 


Also, for your future reference, I've added this helpful guide to help you learn more about answers to the most common W-2 questions. See this article: Get answers to your W-2 questions.

Hi- Thank you very much for the suggestion on trying. a new browser. I did use Chrome in the incognito mode and still the Annual Forms link does not appear in the Forms Section under Taxes. 


Any other thoughts?
