epay and efile are not working why?


Hello there, stephdoyletax,

Let's make sure you've selected the e-file and e-pay methods from your payroll setup as this can be the reason your e-services aren't working.

To review the e-pay setup:

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Select Payroll Center.
  3. Go to the Pay Liabilities tab.
  4. Below Other Activities, select Manage Payment Methods.
  5. Review the e-pay setup by selecting the Schedule payments section.
  6. Double-click each list of tax payment.
  7. In the Edit Payment Schedule - [name of tax payment] window, select the E-pay radio button on the Payment (deposit) method section. (Please see screenshot below for your reference).
  8. Click Finish. Repeat the same process for the other forms.

For the e-file setup, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Select Payroll Center.
  3. Go to the File Forms tab.
  4. Below Other Activities, select Manage Filing Methods.
  5. Review the e-file setup by selecting the Filing methods section.
  6. Double-click each list of tax payment.
  7. In the Filing Methods window, select the E-file radio button. (Please check out the attached file below for your visual reference).
  8. Click the Next button to update the other payments.
  9. Click Finish.

If everything is all set and your e-services is still not working properly, I'd suggest downloading the latest payroll tax table to ensure your payroll is updated.

Please let me know if you have other concerns about QuickBooks e-services. I'm just around if you need further 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.
