UT Form 33H - File Upload Instructions

Greg Hatfield Updated by Greg Hatfield

The UT File Upload screen is accessed from the UT 33H - File Upload to DWS entry in the Module Library list.

Starting 7/1/2019, all employer must file Form 33H electronically. This module can prepare a file containing multiple employers for Form 33H filing on the Utah Department of Workforce Services (DWS) website. CFS supports the fixed-length MMREF file format for Form 33H.

Note: Users can also create a file of the same format from within the Form 33H module using the Online Filing Support menu. However this option can only include one employer at a time in the file.

Utah provides a secure file upload process for taxpayers to send return information using the Utah DWS website. Users should register and become familiar with the file upload process.

Businesses can upload their own return and preparers can upload returns for their clients using the fixed-length file format.


Sign up for a DWS account.

If you do not have an account:

· Click the Login to DWS button to go to

· Click the Click here to Sign Up link and follow the steps.

If you already have an account:

· Click the Login to DWS button to go to

· Enter the Email address and Password in the Sign in section.

· Follow the necessary steps to access the appropriate account and file a return using the File Upload option.


Create the 33H. First, create and save Form 33H data files. Next, on the Utah File Upload screen select the filing period. Then select the employers with saved Form 33H data files that are marked "Ready" in the status column.

The status column lists the status of Form 33H for each employer. The meaning of each status is listed below.


One Form 33H data file has been saved for this employer for the selected filing period and it may be included in the file.


No Form 33H data file has been saved.


More than one Form 33H has been saved for this employer for the selected filing period and the program cannot choose which to include. To include a file for this employer you must delete the extra files. Only one file may be saved.

MM/DD/YY - File Name

Form 33H was included in a file with the specified file name on that date. The form data file may NOT be included in another file unless the status is reset. See STEP 5.

Only those marked "Ready" can be included in a file. Check the box next to the employers you want to include in the file. Click the "Create File" button, navigate to a directory where you will save your Utah upload files, enter the file name and click OPEN to save the file. We recommend you use the default directory created by the program to save all your Utah upload files. The file must end with a .txt extension.


Transmit the file to Utah using the DWS website. First click the ''Login to DWS'' button to connect to the DWS website. Enter your Sign In Email address and Password. Navigate the screens to the File a Tax Report and Upload a Wage File option. Click the Browse or Choose File button to locate the .txt file to upload. If you just created the file, then the path and file name can be copied from the Windows Clipboard into the Browse dialog by pressing CTRL+V. Follow the website instructions to submit the file.


Record any confirmation number you receive. Follow the DWS instructions to determine if the file was accepted without errors.


If you must resubmit, first correct the errors on Form 33H for each affected employer. Next you must reset the status of the affected employers on the list by placing a check next to each employer name and clicking the RESET STATUS button. This allows those employers to be included in another file for that filing period. You may now create the file again as described in STEP 2.

NOTE: Contact Utah for the proper procedure for resubmitting files with errors.
