I need the hard copy of all of my files for online payroll on CD or thumb drive.


It's good to see you here, accounting.

Let me make sure your concern is addressed about having a hard copy on CD or thumb drive of your payroll files. 

If you're using Intuit Online Payroll (IOP) or QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP), please know that this type of subscription is a cloud-based service where you can access all your payroll files. You can view archived forms if you've filed them electronically and paychecks by accessing your account.

To view archived forms in IOP, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to Taxes & Forms.
  2. Click on View Archived Forms in the Quarterly Forms or Annual Forms section.
  3. Choose your desired form.
  4. Click on View.
  5. Then, print or download to save a copy for your records.

I've got an article for you to check out about archived forms: Archive old forms.

Otherwise, you can view reports that will help you keep track of payroll details and history. Here are the links for your reference:

That'll do it. From there, this answer will address your payroll concern. 

Please let me know if you have further question and I'm here to answer them. Have a wonderful day.

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.
