Occasionally, a tax agency may reject a payroll tax form that has been e-filed because, for example, you haven't completed the enrollment process, form information is missing, or you entered incorrect login details, such as a PIN or password.
If an e-filed form is rejected, the rejected status will be recorded in the E-filing History window and in the audit trail for the form submission. To ensure that the form is submitted to the agency in a timely manner, it's important to check the status of the form after it's submitted. That way, you'll have time to handle any issues that may come up.
Important: Processing times vary from agency to agency. Some tax agencies can take 24 to 48 hours (or longer) to process electronic forms and others will process forms immediately. So be sure to check the E-filing History often to check the current status of the form.
