I appreciate you getting back to us and clarifying things, @ildyorlando.

 

You don't have to manually fill out the 8655 form instead, you can directly enroll in electronic services. It'll automatically fill in the information for you. Let me walk you through the process.

 

  1. In your QuickBooks Online, click the Gear icon, then select Payroll Settings.
  2. Select E-file and E-pay in the Taxes section.
  3. On the E-pay and E-file Setup page, choose E-file and e-pay (recommended).
  4. Choose Federal taxes and your state. You can see the list of Electronic services offered by states here.
  5. If you haven't connected your bank account yet, enter the bank account info to proceed.
  6. Click E-sign to sign your documents, then answer a series of questions to complete and pass.

Once authorization forms have been received and bank info has been verified, we will process the enrollment. You'll receive an email as soon as your payroll account is active for E-file & E-pay.

 

Here's an article you can read for more details: Enroll in E-File & Pay.

Let me further clarify my question: On the 8655 form I want to name QB as my agent. For that I need QB's EIN number and address to fill out the form.  What is the appropriate EIN number and address for QB's as an authorized agent? Thank you

Hello @KarenGeoEx,

 

Let me share information about your electronic services enrollment depending on your payroll system.

 

To start with, the steps shared by my colleague above is the enrollment when you're using the enhanced payroll system. Since did see the E-file and E-pay settings, your payroll account may be one of the new systems we have.

 

With this, you'll see a different name to turn this feature on. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Click Taxes and Forms.

Additionally, I've got you this helpful article for the steps in letting the system automatically run payroll for your employees: Use Auto Payroll to pay your employees.

 

If you have any other questions aside from electronic services enrollment, please let me know in the comments. Stay safe!
