Will SC be able to efile their state unemployment for 2019 2nd quarter purposes?


Hello there, susan,

In QuickBooks Desktop, you're unable to file the South Carolina (SC) state unemployment. However, the system can provide a printed copy of the form so you can mail it directly to the tax agency and file it on time for the 2nd quarter of 2019.

To create a file, here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, select Payroll Tax Forms and W-2s, then select Create State SUI E-file.
  2. Select Continue twice in the Welcome and QuickBooks Payroll State SUI File window.
  3. Select SC state from the Select State drop-down list, then click Get QuickBooks Data.
  4. Click OK in the QuickBooks Payroll State SUI E-file - Updated window.
  5. Locate the QuickBooks Payroll State SUI E-file drop-down arrow, and click Start Interview.
  6. Select the I understand that I must review my data and answer the following questions option and select Next until you reach the End of Interview window, and select Create State File.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Select Yes to save the Excel workbook for your records.

However, if your state requires electronic filing, you can visit their website for guidance.

If you wish to learn more about creating, saving, and submitting the UI file, you can refer to this support link: Efile or Submit State Unemployment Filings.

Here's an article to further guide you about tax forms, withholdings, unemployment and other taxes of the state of South Carolina: South Carolina Payroll Tax Compliance.

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.
