QuickFile has 7 steps:
- Specify the format of the payroll data - If
"Other Text" format is selected, additional conversion
steps are required.
- Choose the payroll file.
- Validate the data (and correct any errors).
- Send the Authorization file (i.e. Filename.qfh)
- Send the Data file
(i.e. Filename.ice.gz) to TWC.
- Review the submissions for acceptance.
- Pay your tax.
We strongly encourage you to go through at least
the third step of validating the data as early
as possible. If your quarterly report file has
certain types of errors, QuickFile will not allow
you to send the file to TWC. Allow adequate time
to fix errors within your payroll program and reconstruct
the payroll file so that it will pass the QuickFile
edits, enabling you to file the return timely.
There are two potential sources of errors:
- User error - the user keyed the wrong information
into a certain field or left it blank in error.
- Program error - the payroll program itself
does not report the data correctly for QuickFile.
The payroll software company must fix this
type of error. If selecting the "Other Text
to file a report, program errors must be corrected
by the user within the Excel spread sheet before
validation can occur. Contact the TWC QuickFile
Help Desk for assistance with "Other Text
program errors at any of the following numbers: 512-463-8230, 512-463-2061, 512-475-1189
or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: User errors can be corrected
by the filer while Program errors may require
correction by the payroll software company.
If you have specific questions concerning the
operation of your payroll program, contact the
company that developed the software. TWC personnel
are not familiar with payroll programs and will
not be able to answer your questions.
