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

I’ll share some insights about issuing 2019 W-2s and 1099s when cancelling your payroll service.

Here are the tasks you’ll no longer be able to do after cancellation:

  • Run payroll.
  • Pay and file federal and state taxes.
  • Prepare for the year-end taxes and print W-2s and 1099s.

I’d recommend printing any payroll reports, such as Payroll Summary report, and Tax Form Worksheet. This way, you’ll get the data you need in manually preparing the forms outside the system.

Here’s how to print the Tax Form Worksheet:

  1. Go to the Reports menu at the top.
  2. Select Employees & Payroll.
  3. Choose More Payroll Reports in Excel, then select Tax Form Worksheets.
  4. Click Enable Content.
  5. Select Annual W-2/W-3.
  6. Set the date range to this year.
  7. Click Create Report.
  8. Choose OK.
  9. Print the worksheet.

The first three screenshots below will show you the first seven steps.

After printing the necessary payroll reports, you can cancel your payroll service. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu at the top.
  2. Select My Payroll Service.
  3. Choose Account/Billing Information.
  4. Log in using your Intuit Account information.
  5. The Account Maintenance page will open.
  6. In the Service information section, choose Cancel.
  7. Complete the cancellation process.

The fourth screenshot below will show you the first three steps. For more information, you can check out this article: Cancel Standard, Enhanced, or Basic Payroll Service.

If you want to process and print your year-end forms using QuickBooks, you can reactivate your payroll subscription during the filing period. For detailed steps, you can perform the steps through this article: Update or Renew Your Subscription.

This will get you on the right track, tom.

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.
