Check that you have the right QuickBook products and more before you e-file.

  • An Enhanced Payroll subscription
  • A supported version of QuickBooks
  • An internet connection
  • recent payroll update
  • State enrollment to e-file and e-pay
  • The Login Requirements to e-file or e-pay in QuickBooks (you get upon or after enrolling with your State Tax Agency).
