Form 941 Quarterly Federal Tax Filing

Our business files form 941 with a B Schedule quarterly. For this past quarter: April - June 2020, line 5a (Taxable social security wages) did not pre-fill. Usually this amount is the same as line 2 (wages, tips, etc.) for us. Therefore, this form is saying we overpaid for the quarter and should get a refund instead of showing we did make all of our payments during the quarter (which we did). Is there a reason this field did not pull across this quarter? Any information would be much appreciated.

Yes, the issue is that the 941 form requires a QB program patch/update, but nowhere is that mentioned in the payroll updates nor are you notified when you run the form that the data sent from QB to the form is in an old style that is no longer sufficient for the form.

 

Both of these things, to tell customers to update QuickBooks, and to warn them if they don't, could have been done by Intuit - the mechanisms exist and they've done it before - but they didn't this time.

 

To make the form work, patch QuickBooks to the latest release.

What to you mean by patching QB to the latest release, I am having the same problem.  Do you mean running a payroll update or when it asks about updating QB when you open it.  I have several companies that are having the same problem.

 

Thanks in advance for help

Good afternoon, timbeneze64! Hope you're having a good week. :)

 

How you find those forms is based a lot on what you did with them in 2014. There may have been the option to save the file as a PDF then, so if you did that, you'd want to search your computer for that tax form. It should save as "TAXFORM File" as the type. 

 

You can also check in your Filing History in QuickBooks Desktop:

  1. Go to the Employee Center.
  2. Click on the Payroll Tab.
  3. Then go to File Forms.
  4. Underneath Filing History, look up either Saved Filing or E-Filings.

Feel free to take a look there and let me know if you're able to find it by replying to this post.
