I am receiving the following while trying to get tax forms created and filed. Unknown Client specific Tax form printing error 10004. Can someone please help me?

I'm wondering if this is because they have  an updated form 941 for the second quarter.  I was able to still print payroll forms as of last Friday.  However, I am now getting this exact error code when I am trying to print tax forms this morning.

Hello, and welcome to the Community, dainen-lifestyle.
 

I went ahead and did some research on your behalf. Currently, Intuit has no ongoing or solved investigations about this specific error. However, there's a resource of ours which has an identical message that accompanies the numeric code. You had mentioned encountering this when trying to get tax forms created and filed. To verify my understanding, are you receiving it when trying to print documents?
 

Our knowledge is that these types of errors occur if tax table form files are missing or damaged. I'll guide you through how to resolve the problem:
1. Visually check active/inactive items on the following lists for any invalid characters, such as # or blank spaces where there shouldn't be any.

  • Company Information
  • Vendor List
  • Employee Name List
  • Payroll Item List
  • Chart of Accounts

2. Confirm your software is updated to it's most current release. When updating, ensure all updates are selected. Also try re-downloading the entire payroll update by hitting the Ctrl key and clicking your Update tab at the same time.
3. Obtain the latest tax table. From your Employees menu, select Get Payroll Updates.
4. After finishing all prior steps, perform a clean installation of QuickBooks Desktop in Selective Startup.
 

This is our solution for these kinds of problems. The only difference here is you're seeing a numeric code which Intuit hasn't been aware of. With that said, let me know how these steps work for you. I'll be here to help if you have any questions or additional information to provide. Have a wonderful day!

We received the same error message when we tried to process the 2nd quarter tax forms and even when trying to print the 1st quarter forms.     We were able to resolve the problem by doing a payroll update and quickbooks update.

Hi there, @lsg1.

 

There are various causes of this Quickbooks unknown client-specific tax form printing error such as:

  • If the tax table form files have gone missing or have become damaged. This mainly occurs if the download or installation of the latest tax table is incomplete or has somehow become corrupt.
  • If the QuickBooks payroll subscription has expired. You must have an active QuickBooks payroll subscription to print forms.

 

To resolve this, you may follow the steps provided by my colleague @ZachE. You can also visit this article link for more details: Unknown client-specific tax form printing error. Also, if you still experience the same error, you can perform the suggested steps provided by @d elrod and @maflory

 

I would also recommend contacting our support team, this way, they can further investigate what causes the issue and generate steps to fix it for you. 

 

Feel free to leave a reply below if you have additional concerns with QuickBooks. I'm always here to help. Take care always.

I received the same message in attempting to efile and epay the state unemployment, not even the 941 as it is one away for the end of the quarter.  I was not printing, I was trying to open to file and pay.

I had the same issue trying to create the 2nd quarter 941 taxes.  Has anyone tried the suggestions from Zack at QuickBooks to see if that helps.
