E-Filing Federal Tax Form

This month I tried to file my quarterly taxes on the 1st or 2nd of the month. Quickbooks (or whomever) did *not* allow the federal form to go through. QB did save it though. I decided not to do the rest at that time. Now I can't figure out how to e-file my report. It shows as a saved file. I can bring it up, but cannot figure out how to e-file from there.

 

Help?

Re: E-Filing Federal Tax Form

I've been e-filing for years and the state unemployment went through yesterday no problem.  I also paid both, federal and state, through epay with no issues. Those are the only two I do quarterly.

Re: E-Filing Federal Tax Form

Welcome back to our forums, @AbbottandSons,

 

I can provide the steps for you to e-file your Federal forms successfully.

 

You can generate a new report in the File Forms window then file the form from there. Perform the steps below to submit your tax form electronically:

  1. Click the Employees tab, then select Payroll Tax Forms & W-2s.
  2. Choose Process Payroll Forms.
  3. In the Payroll Center, select File Forms tab.
  4. Double-click the form you need to file from the list.
  5. Enter the Filing Period then click OK.
  6. Review the form and select Check For Errors.
  7. Hit the Submit Form button.
  8. Tap the E-File button and follow the instructions.

I've included an article to guide you with the e-filing process: E-file 940, 941, and 944 tax forms

 

Please let me know how it goes, @AbbottandSons. I'm here to help whenever you need it.
