How do I amend payroll returns?

I have a client who is an LLC, began operations in December 2018, filed form 1065 so is definitely operating as a partnership.  The client began payroll in March 2019 and besides paying employees, the client has been paying the partners through payroll.  We need to amend the payroll returns to remove the partners' payroll.  Will QuickBooks payroll be able to assist the client in preparing the amended returns.  If so, how does the client get started?


Let me share some information on how to process the amended forms, gborgardt.

The feature to support amended or corrected forms in QuickBooks Online is still unavailable. With this, they'll need to manually send it by mail to the IRS. 

To prepare the forms, secure a blank amended form from your tax agency. Then, process the original and updated versions of this on the Archived Quarterly Forms or Archived Annual Forms page from your QuickBooks account. 

Check this article for more information: File amended forms.

    Keep me posted how it goes and if you have follow-up questions in preparing your amended form, by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Take care and have a wonderful 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.
