ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

 

screenshot.JPG A new reminder appeared - one that I never programmed and I cannot figure out how to get rid of. When I click, it takes me to the IRS website which provides no further information.

QB is telling me estimated tax payment due. There isn't one due, and I don't know why QB thinks there is. How do I make it go away?

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

Hello there, @Random_Geek.

 

Thanks for getting back to us. Allow me to address your concern, so let me get this straightened out.

 

I appreciate you for following the steps provided by my colleagues above. I've replicated this on my own QuickBooks file, and it seems like the Estimated tax payment due alert in the Reminders window is working as designed. Currently, there isn't a way to remove this option. I can see how this feature would be helpful for you, I recommend sending feedback directly to our product developers for future updates.  

 

Here's how you can send feedback:

  1. At the top menu bar, click Help.
  2. Select Send Feedback Online
  3. Choose Product Suggestion, and fill in the feedback info.
  4. Click Send Feedback

Please know that you're always welcome to post if you have any other concerns. We're always here to help you out. Have a good one.

How to eliminate these alerts? There is no option to completely remove. I did not add them and do not want them. There are many set up for these estimated tax payments that QB appears to have automatically added.

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

Hello, @Random_Geek.

 

I'm glad to help remove the tax payment alert in QuickBooks. This happens if the liability is paid outside QuickBooks. If it isn't entered into QuickBooks Desktop, you can enter the payment in the Pay Scheduled Liabilities or use Enter Prior Payments option in the YTD Adjustment window.

 

Here's how to enter the payment using the Enter Prior Payments:

 

  1. Go to Help menu then select About QuickBooks.
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Y.
  3. Choose the date range then select Next until you see the Create Payments button.
  4. Select the drop-down arrow on the Item Name, then choose the item you need to create a prior payment for.
  5. Verify the dates and update first before selecting Next Payment.
  6. Click Done.

You can also check out this article for more details: Scheduled liabilities show as overdue or in red.

 

That's it. I believe this will help stop the alert. Feel free to drop by again if you have other questions about your tax payments.

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

Perhaps you don't understand - I didn't enter estimated tax payments, nor do I have any that need "correcting". I need this alert completely removed, and every other one that it automatically created related to this as they were all done by QB in error.

Also, there is no "ABOUT QUICKBOOKS" option in the help menu. Must not be in desktop version.

Hi there, @Random_Geek.

 

I appreciate your prompt response about this concern. Allow me to join this conversation and provide some information on how to get rid of this Estimated Tax Payment Due alert on your QuickBooks. 

 

You'll need to select done on the status of your alerts to prevent these alerts from showing up.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click on Company at the top menu bar.
  2. Select on Alerts Manager.
  3. Put a check mark under the Done tab to complete the status of the transaction.

I've attached some screenshots below for your reference:

However, if you have a scheduled estimated tax, these alerts will still show up depending on your schedule. You can check out your preferences to see if your tax frequency. 

 

To do that:

  1. Click on Edit at the top.
  2. Select on Preferences.
  3. Click on Sales Tax.
  4. Select on the Company Preferences tab and refer to the When do you pay sales tax section to see your tax schedule.

I've attached some screenshots to guide you with the steps:

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

I went in and marked them all as done, but this does not solve the problem of QB creating them in the first place.

Please Learn from this input.

 

Let's Review this:

 

The Company Menu has To Dos, Reminders, and Alerts.

 

Alerts is Push Technology, from the Intuit server to our programs.

 

"However, if you have a scheduled estimated tax, these alerts will still show up depending on your schedule. You can check out your preferences to see if your tax frequency. "

 

Reminders is the List you control in Preferences and has an icon in the Menu bar (like a little alarm clock with a Count)

 

Alerts are not the same as the List of Reminders. That also isn't the same as: "This happens if the liability is paid outside QuickBooks. If it isn't entered into QuickBooks Desktop, you can enter the payment in the Pay Scheduled Liabilities"

 

That's Payroll Center.

 

All of these are Different Functions.

 

Through our data file, we control Payroll and Sales Taxes. The Alerts from Intuit are simply trying to be Helpful to you, from the perspective of the Outside world. Pushing notices for your information, to review and Dismiss.

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

I do not appreciate the mansplained response. Please refrain from answering any of my posts unless you provide full answers - with details - how to resolve said question.

Each time over the years you have responded to my questions you have failed at every opportunity to provide useful answers.

It wasn't mansplained, and you were not listed in the reply. It was directed at Intuit people that are mixing up the various functions. So, calm down a bit and help this Peer User forum inform the Intuit support people how to learn about the programs they are supposed to already understand. It's pretty apparent they don't use it every day, as we do, and they need your Help to learn.

Re: ALERT - ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENT DUE

Telling someone to "calm down" is confrontational. Refrain from the mansplaining and confrontational language. Better yet, please do not respond to any post I've made. I don't appreciate the tone used in your responses.

 

If you feel you have something to teach Intuit, do it directly and not a post I've made. It is not my responsibility to teach Intuit.

There is no Tone in text; there is only what you bring to the internet.

 

I realize you don't appreciate that the All Stars have been trying to help Intuit and the Intuit support people provide better answers to their public users. We, the All Stars, also are End users. if you cannot get better answers, and we cannot get better answers, and no one helps the support learn, then just where do you think this will end?

 

If you won't be part of the Solution, please don't be part of the problem. This is a Peer User forum, not your personal Support page. You don't get to decide who learns from your topics or provides input on them. If you want that type of control, you pay a professional support person to help you directly, not over the internet community.
