Check your payroll tax form

The Check for Errors button on the payroll form window verifies that the form contains all required data and that it is formatted correctly.

For example, let's say you are subscribed to Enhanced Payroll and you are preparing a state payroll tax form. If your state requires you to include a state employer ID number on your form, the Check for Errors button checks to make sure the ID number is on the form. If it is not, it warns you about it in the error pane at the top of the window.

To check your form

  1. In the payroll tax form window, click Check for Errors.

  2. The errors pane that appears at the top of the window displays any problems with the form. Problems could include things like missing data or data that is formatted incorrectly. Not only does the errors pane show you what's wrong, but it helps you quickly find each error.

  3. Click on a line item in the error pane to move the cursor to the field in the form where the error is located. When it is fixed correctly, the error will disappear from the pane.

  4. (Optional) Click the print icon in the error pane to print the list of errors.

  5. When you are finished, click the close icon to close the pane.
