If I have Payroll Full Service, do I need to complete any tasks for the w2 and other forms. How do I know Quick Books has completed their end?

This is my first time using Quick Books Payroll.  Sorry if this question is obvious.  


Thank you for reaching out to us, kelly_p_farley.

There isn't a need for you to file the payroll forms since you're using QuickBooks Desktop Full-Service Payroll (Assisted payroll). Our payroll experts will file your returns and send copies to your employees via mail.

You can view or print the copies of the filed forms in the Payroll Tax Center (PTC), which is available approximately 35 days after the end of the quarter.

To view or print the forms:

  1. Go to Employees, select Payroll Center.
  2. Click the File Forms tab.
  3. Click View/Print forms & W-2s.
  4. Enter Payroll PIN, then click OK.
  5. On the upper-left corner of the Payroll Tax Center window, click Filed Forms.
  6. Select the forms you want to view or print.
  7. At the bottom of the list of filings, click Open/Save.

If you receive an error or to bypass a pop-up blocker when PTC opens, hold down the CTRL + ALT keys on your keyboard simultaneously until the PDF opens.

I also recommend contacting our assisted payroll experts if you have questions along the way.

Here's how to contact them:

  1. Go to https://payroll.intuit.com/support/contact/?infoSrc=qs&service=1.
  2. Click the Select the product you are using drop-down.
  3. Click QuickBooks Assisted.
  4. Select Payroll.
  5. Click the View Contact Info button to get the phone number.

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.
