Steps to resolve issues when downloading or importing transactions


Identity Confirmation Request

IMPORTANT: This may be required after installing a new version of QuickBooks or an update to your current version.

Most banks require identity confirmation prior to accessing data from PFM (Personal Financial Management) software. To satisfy the bank security requirement, log in to your account outside of QuickBooks and check your Message Center or Notifications inbox for details. If needed, contact your bank directly for instructions.
