QuickBooks 2017 R8

| December 20, 2017

Intuit has released QuickBooks 2017 R8, which is available via automatic updates. You can also go to the QuickBooks Update site to download the patch.

I’ve not had a chance to test this update. I recommend that you wait a week or two to see if anyone runs into any problems. I don’t expect any problems, I’m just cautious when it comes to updates. However, if you are filing 1099’s right now, or if you use Capital One Bank, you probably should install this update right away.

QuickBooks 1099 Compliance

This release updates QuickBooks 2017 to the latest 1099 Compliance changes from the IRS for tax filing. It includes support for a new functionality in the 1099-Misc forms printing wizard in the Vendor Center to allow you to enter State tax withheld and Payer’s State ID with verification for two states, Wisconsin and New Jersey. Currently this is not stored in the database, it will only be entered in the wizard for immediate printing. Intuit says that in an upcoming release, these form elements will also be saved in the company file for later use.

QuickBooks Online Banking with Capital One

Starting December 19, 2017, Capital One Bank will discontinue support for the Direct Connect service. Express Web Connect service will replace Direct Connect, and the impact will extend to loss of Bill Pay functionality, in addition to statement download. Confusing? Please see this Intuit support article for detailed information.
