Inuit won't let me use my new email. Keeps trying to access pword for old one. I cannot even get started. Chat never started


Let me help you sort this out, @sfischerwind.

When signing up for a new QuickBooks Self-Employed account, the system will be able to detect whether the email address you're using is associated with an existing Intuit account. 

Let's click the Sign In button instead of entering your email address to create a new account. Doing this will allow you to use your existing login credentials with the new QBSE account.

In the meantime, let’s apply the following troubleshooting steps to ensure that this is not browser-related. 

          1. Sign up for a new account using an incognito or private browser. Kindly use either of the following shortcut keys: 

      • Google Chrome, press Ctrl Shift N
      •  Mozilla Firefox: press Ctrl Shift P
      • Internet Explorer: press Ctrl Shift P
      • Safari: press Command Shift N

           2. If you’re able to sign up successfully, you may want to clear the cache and cookies of your regular web browsers.

           3. You may use another web browser if the issue persists.

You can also use the Browser Health Checkup Tool to check any issues with your browser's health and its compatibility with QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Keep me posted if you have other questions. The Community and I are always here 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.
