E-Filing archived w-2/w3

QB Desktop - Is there a way to go back and e-file archived w-2/w-3? I didn't have had it set up to e-file initially.

E-Filing archived w-2/w3

Hello there, @JenInTheRain.


Glad to have you in the Community today. I'm here to share some clarifications about e-filing archived W2 forms in QuickBooks Desktop.


In QuickBooks Desktop, you can no longer E-file archived W2 forms. You can only reprint it an submit it manually.  Forms can be found under your Filing History in the Payroll Center.


To access and print them:

  1. Click on the Employees menu.
  2. Select on Payroll Tax Forms & W-2s.
  3. Click on Process Payroll Forms.
  4. Under Filing History, find the prior year's W-2.
  5. To access and print your W-2 information, click on the link under the Saved PDF column. 

This information should get you going, @JenInTheRain.


Please know that the Community has your back if you have any other questions. We're always here to help. Have a good one!
