Year end 401k company contribution

I need to add a company 401k contribution for eligible employees before the end of the year. Any ideas on how to do that properly so it appears on the W-2? Thanks.

Thanks for taking the time posting here in the Community, @Anonymous,


I can help you set up the 401K contribution in Intuit Online Payroll.


Adding a new contribution can be done in just a few clicks. Let me guide you through the steps:

  1. On your Intuit Online Payroll profile, go to the Employees tab.
  2. Click the employee name.
  3. Go to the Deductions & Contributions box and click Edit.
  4. Click Add a Company Contribution in the Company Contributions section.
  5. Under Contribution, choose 401K-401(k).
  6. Enter the Amount per period and the Annual maximum.
  7. Click Save.
