payroll will not update to latestest update available, gives a message that i must update by march 10, 2019

I have downloaded and installed updates, but still get the same message


Hello there, lawrencemotorco

Let’s get rid of the error when updating your payroll tax table.

It's possible there are paychecks stuck as online to send, which is why the payroll updates did not go through.

To help fix this, let’s first download and install QuickBooks Desktop Release 7 (R7) before performing the steps below:

  1. Go to the Employees menu at the top.
  2. Select My Payroll Service, then choose Send Usage Data.

If it’s successful, you can redownload the latest payroll tax table. If it’s not, let’s keep in mind of the number of matches on the bottom right of the Find window. Then, make sure to make a note of the oldest stuck and newest stuck checks for reference later. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Edit menu at the top.
  2. Select Find.
  3. Go to the Advanced tab.
  4. In the Choose Filter section, choose Detail Level from the Filter list.
  5. Select Summary Only (see the screenshot below).
  6. In the Choose Filter section, choose Online Status from the Filter list.
  7. Select Online to Send.
  8. Choose Find to see the paychecks that haven't been sent to Intuit.
  9. You can run the Verify Data utility to appear the stuck paychecks.

If the second step doesn’t work, you can go through the third step through this helpful article: Resolve Payroll Error PS038.

The steps and the article above will help fix the error so you’ll be able to run your payroll, lawrencemotorco.

If you have other payroll concerns, please let me know. I’ll be around to help.

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.
