I did  submit the payment for the form 940 when I received the QuickBooks E-pay Confirmations

it does show payee:  Florida Dept of Revenue  period: 2018  payment Federal 940

shouldn't these be IRS.?

but when I do get the email  from [email address removed] it does says

That my payment Irs-940 for EIN has been processed successfully by the IRS Agency.

I hope you do understand my question, please let me know  as soon as possible.

Greetings, @Misnietos.


Thank you for posting in the QuickBooks Community. I'd be glad to help share some information about the payee name associated with each payroll tax liability payment.


When you create a payroll item, you can assign the tax agencies as the payee however they may also be a bank or an insurance company. It's possible that the Florida Dept of Revenue was entered as the name of the agency on the Federal Unemployment item. If so, it'll not affect the payment, and you can change it on the Payroll Item List to use the correct agency on your next payments.


Let me guide you on how to verify and change the payee name: 

  1. From the Lists menu, select Payroll Item List
  2. Double-click the Federal Unemployment item.
  3. On the Edit payroll item window, click Next.
  4. From the Enter name of agency to which liability is paid drop-down, select the payee (vendor). 
  5. Click Next until you can click the Finish button. 

If you don't see the name of the payee, click < Add New >, and enter the agency's information. 


I've also added an article for additional reference:

I'm just a post away if you should have any other questions about the federal 940 e-payment. Wishing you well.
