Getting repeated error message "error while trying to send usage data" please telephone payroll support.

WHY can I not find a way to email or chat a question to QuickBooks payroll support?  I do not WANT to wait on hold on the telephone.  I pay them enough money that I should be able to get convenient access.  Argh!  Getting repeated error message "error while trying to send usage data"  please telephone payroll support. 


Let me help you fix this, pam.

I'm here to provide you with the resolution needed without you having to call our phone support.

You usually encounter this error message when sending it to the payroll service. This may be caused by an incorrect time zone on your computer or if you have an Accountant's copy created.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
