We have several accounting clients in QB. We will use QB to file W-2/W-3 for 2017. Can we use authorization codes we used through another venue?

If we can use the codes we already have, I assume I will enter them into each individual client file. Is there a way to enter existing codes? If we have to have a new code to e-file, I assume we have only one as the accountant, so would I register for a code through one client file and then add it to the others? We have not used QB for this purpose before.  Many of the clients pay themselves and file their own 941s. Others pay themselves and we file the 941, but we have not filed them with QB yet. (About to at the end of this quarter.)

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.
