Thank you for posting, domemori.

Let me share some information about why an account was place on hold.

Usually, QuickBooks payroll service was placed on hold when the subscription billing has failed. You can resolve this by renewing or reactivating your Desktop payroll service. You can reactivate directly inside your Desktop file and/or through the web. 

Are you being asked to verify the account by the Customer Service agent? If yes, that’s our normal process in checking your account.

As much as I would like to help in verifying the cause as to why the account was being place on hold, but I don’t have the tools needed in pulling up your account.

You may need to contact our Product Support to check for the updates and further discuss what happens to the account in a safe and secure environment.

Check this link to reach our Payroll Support team:  https://payroll.intuit.com/support/contact/?infosrc=qs&service=64. Then, select the type of payroll you’re using.

That should do it. Let me know if you have questions about this by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Have a great rest of the day.

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.
