    Hi Judy,

    I am an Intuit employee and saw your comment. It looks like you are having trouble E-filing your George state W-2s from QuickBooks. I recommend downloading the latest payroll tax table update. I have updated this article to include this recommendation as step 1 in the process. I hope this helps. Thank you for posting a comment.


    Last year I had to upload a CSV file to Georgia for my G-1003. This year I e-filed through QuickBooks of both the G-1003 & the W-2 worksheet. Is this all I have to do to satisfy the State of Georgia? Does this mean I don't have to upload CSV file?




    Hi Janice,

    I'm from Intuit and saw your comment. You are correct, Georgia no longer require you to upload a CSV file for your G-1003. I hope this answers your questions. Thank you for posting a comment!


    I have QBPro 2010 with enhanced payroll. I cannot e-file my GA-W2s because one of the employees has a green card and a SS# valid for employment only (Starts with 940). This is a valid number (I've already researched that). GA Dept. of Revenue stated to try all zeros (that did not work either). They also stated that all w2's with a valid ss# must be e-filed and to mail in the one with the employment ID. Well, QB won't let me e-file with all zeros either. So I don't know how to proceed from here. Can QB update it's software to allow ID's that start in the 900's?
