how should I set up quarterly reports e filing and what is the process?


Hello there, raman

Glad to have you here in the Community. I’ll share some information about setting up your quarterly reports for e-file.

If you have an active payroll subscription and latest tax table, your quarterly reports are automatically updated. I can walk you through on how to find these forms.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Employees menu at the top.
  2. Select Payroll Center.
  3. Select the File Forms tab.
  4. Check your quarterly forms.

If there are missing forms, you can make them active. This way, these will add back to the list of your payroll forms. Here’s how:

  1. On the File Forms page, click the Forms drop-down arrow. 
  2. Choose Make a New Form Active.
  3. On the Add Payroll Form window, select Federal/State on the State drop-down.
  4. Select the form.
  5. Click Add Form.

I’ve added screenshots below to guide you through the steps.

If you want to process other payroll tax forms, you can check out this helpful article: Process, Print, and Save QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Tax Forms.

This will get you going, raman. If you need any help, please let me know by leaving a comment below. Rest assured, I’m glad to assist you further. Have a great 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.
