How can i print a fica tip credit report?

My accountant is asking for a FICA tip credit report and want to know if quickbooks has such a report?


Thanks for taking the time to post here in the Community, lorena

Currently, there isn’t an option to print a FICA Tip Credit report in the program.

Just to confirm, is your accountant trying to fill out the IRS Form 8846 FICA Tip Credit? If so, you can use the 8846 Worksheet as an alternative.

Please make sure your QuickBooks Desktop and payroll tax table are updated. This way, it'll help download the latest features in the program and ensure your payroll has accurate information. You’ll also need to have a Microsoft Excel version that’s compatible with the software.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Reports menu at the top.
  2. Select Employees & Payroll, then choose Summarize Payroll Data in Excel.
  3. Click Enable macros in Excel.
  4. Select the date range in the QuickBooks Payroll Reports Workbook window.
  5. Under Optional Reports, verify the 8846 Worksheet is checked.
  6. Click Get QuickBooks Data.
  7. In Excel, select the 8846 tab.

You can see the first screenshot below to show you the first two steps. Then, the second screenshot will guide you through the last three steps.

Once done, you can provide this report to your accountant so he/she can complete the IRS Form 8846. Then, he/she can file according to the IRS instructions.

For more details, here’s a great article you can refer to: IRS Form 8846 FICA Tip Credit.  

I’m here anytime you have other payroll concerns, lorena. Have an awesome 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.
