I do not offer retirement plan to employees, why does NJ-W-3 wants me to put "P" in order to transmit form?

I do not offer retirement plan, why should I put a "P" for my employees in order to submit NJ-W-3?


Hi there, yuan_tianfu

Thank you for bringing this to my attention here in the Community.

In Intuit Online Payroll (IOP), here are the possible reasons why it prompts you to enter “P” on your employees when submitting the NJ W-3 form:

  • One or all of your employees have the retirement plan deduction setup.
  • The due date to file the form is too far.

Since you don’t offer retirement plan for your employees, I’d suggest contacting our IOP Support Team. By doing so, they’ll be able to request account information and securely access it, as the Community is a public forum.

Once they have your company information, they can double-check why it pops-up to enter “P” when submitting the form and help fix it.

To get their most up-to-date contact information, here’s how:

  1. Go to https://payroll.intuit.com/support/contact/?infoSrc=qs&service=64.
  2. Get the phone number for Intuit Online Payroll.

You can also visit the NJ publication article for more information about the form. For more details about IOP Year-End Center, you can navigate the helpful links on this article: https://community.intuit.com/browse/standalonepayroll-enhanced-yearend.

Stay in touch with me how it goes, yuan_tianfu. If you have other payroll concerns, feel free to comment below. I'm glad to help. Cheers!

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.
