Employees and payroll

You've come to the right place, Vane.


Let me begin by congratulating you on running your first year of payroll. It'll be a pleasure to provide some insight about the 940 forms.


As Lexiesmemere mentioned, the form will only become available when the IRS has released the finalized form. I'm happy to inform you that we were able to receive it and have updated the old forms in QuickBooks.


To get the form and print it, you need to have an active QuickBooks Desktop Enhanced Payroll subscription and the latest tax table update. If you're subscribed, then let me walk you through the steps on how to get the update:

  1. From the Employees menu, choose Get Payroll Updates.
  2. Select Download entire payroll update.

  3. Click Update.
  4. Hit OK when the update is done.

I'm also including our detailed guide on how to print forms and get payroll updates, just in case.


That should do it! I'm confident that with these resources, you'll be able to print the form like a pro in no time.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do to be of assistance. I'm always here to provide help and answer any questions that you may have.
