Form 940 worksheet -Line 10

Line 10 on Form 940 for 2018 applies to our situation (3 corporate officers on payroll are not subject to State Unemployment tax) therefore the worksheet should have been completed and total FUTA tax adjusted because SOME of the taxable FUTA wages were excluded from state unemployment tax. This did not generate, is there some way to correct this?

Re: Form 940 worksheet -Line 10

Hi there, @bmastolier.


Thank you for asking the Community. I can share some information about how the Form 940 report populates the line 10 amount.


QuickBooks calculates the Line 10 by the amount from line 7 of the worksheet. If there was a value calculated for line 9, QuickBooks does not enter an amount for line 10.


If there was no value for line 9, QuickBooks adds together all wages paid that have a FUTA-taxable tax-tracking type. We advise verifying your worksheet that is offered along with your 940.


To correct the amount, you will have to contact our QuickBooks Online Payroll Team. They have all the tools to process you request in updating the line 10 amount.

I had this same issue and contacting support resulted in them telling me it calculated correctly. Waste of two hours. Not sure why we're all paying for software if it calculates wrong.

Hi there, No_way.


Thank you for joining the thread and bringing this to my attention. Allow me to join this thread and share some additional clarification regarding line 10 of Form 940.


As my colleague mentioned, QuickBooks will calculate and add the amounts to the Form 940 based on the payroll details recorded in the program. However, if the amounts are incorrect, it is generally recommended to contact the Online Payroll Team. They have specialized tools that are necessary to make the adjustments.


Before you go, I want you to know that your voice matters and I'm submitting feedback on your behalf. Feedback is sent to the Management Team to determine what we need to implement moving forward to provide the best QuickBooks experience and ensure this doesn't happen again.


Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you, I want to ensure your success. Thanks for reaching out, cheers to a productive week ahead.
