Intuit refuses to generate my 941 and 940 forms for 2016 and yes I have paid

Due to bad health I had to close my business in late 2016 I have not paid taxes for that year It shows payroll paid through the third quarter but no 941 was generated for second and third quarter plus I need end of year 940 I have spoken to them but they either lose my connection or promise to call me back which they never do

Any advise would be greatful

QuickBooks only provides one year of forms at a time, hence now you can only produce forms for 2018 and 2018 alone. 

BUT you can still run the data for specific dates and create your 2016 forms although they will be marked 2018. It will then be up to you to transfer the data to proper forms available for free for a years at

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.
