How do I receive a proof of payment from a federal tax deposit made through QB and efiled?

I efile and epay my federal tax deposits through QB Online and IRS is stating they did not receive payments for two quarters. How do I get the proof from the epayment through QB that the payment was sent and received by the IRS?


Thanks for posting in the Community, elizabethfraser1.

Once you process efile and epay, you'll receive an email confirmation once the payment is submitted to IRS. Let's double-check your QuickBooks Online if the payment that you processed was successfully submitted.

Here's how:

  1. Click on Reports on the left pane.
  2. Under Payroll, click on Payroll Tax Payments.
  3. Select the Date Range and click Run Report.
  4. It will indicate in the NOTES if the payment was successfully submitted.

If it's not indicated in the notes, you can delete and re-submit the tax payment. On the other hand, if it was successfully submitted, I'd suggest contacting our QuickBooks Online Payroll Support, they have the tools that can help you double-check the efile and epay that you processed.

Please let me know if you have further questions by leaving a comment below, I'll be around to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
