If you are using TurboTax 2011, please update so that you can access the latest Quick Employer Forms. If you are using an earlier version of TurboTax, access to Quick Employer Forms is now only available in 2011 TurboTax Business or
TurboTax Home & Business. One can access QEF only through 2011 TurboTax Business or TurboTax Home & Business going forward and not
BUT……There is now a work around to prepare W2s and 1099s on your computer instead of online. Per TT Tyson……
I discovered a bit of a hidden feature today. It turns out the offline W2/1099 creator hasn't been completely removed, yet.
Instead of clicking the 'Start a New Return' button on the TurboTax home screen, select New Tax Return from the File menu. You'll see a small window asking if you're creating a 1040 or w2/1099s. Select W2/1099.
It will then take you to the offline W2/1099 creator that was there in previous years. This works in both Windows H&B and Business.
If you're using a Mac and trying the link in the front of the program, we know that doesn't work. There is another link in the Schedule C interview on the screen titled Pay Any Employees and that link works.
