Hi there, fredericks.
Since you still received a message that it needs to renew your payroll subscription which should be auto renew, this could be the automatic renewal might have been unsuccessful.
There are different ways to resolve this according to the alert you received. If you received the Payroll Service Alert! Please update your billing information, this means we're unable to renew your subscription successfully on the date indicated in the alert. This may be because your credit card or bank account on file is already invalid or expired. To fix this, please follow the steps below.
1. In Payroll Service Alert window, click the Reactivate Account button.
2. Sign in using your Intuit Account login.
3. From the Service Information section, select the Reactivate link.
4. Review the details of your payroll service, then click Proceed to Checkout.
5. Choose a Payment Method.
6. Enter the Card Security Code. Then, click Submit.
7. Hit Continue.
8. Click Place Order. Then, choose Next.
9. Click Return to QuickBooks.

Nothing works. The annoying renew payroll subscription keeps showing up on any computer even though the subscription is active and the charge card data was current. I'm guessing a fix is in order?

I have a similar message - but my payroll renewal went through fine - so my payroll subscription for the year has been paid in full - and my account shows it as "Active " but on the desktop it still says renew and I need to "verify my subscription" which I do and the button with the "RENEW" is still there .
I keep doing my updates but there is still an issue with that. how do we get quickbooks to understand it has been paid for and active ....
Thank you for joining the thread, @LandscapeLady.
I've checked from our records and found an ongoing investigation about customers having an active subscription but still sees an alert when logging in to CAMPS. Our engineers are now all hands working together to get a resolution of this problem. At this time, you can try following the steps provided by ChristieAnn above to fix the error. If you're getting the same problem, I suggest re-validating your payroll service key to ensure the correct one is used.
If the problem continues, I suggest reaching out to our Support Team so they can review this further. If verified that you're one of the affected users in this investigation (INV-42825), they'll add you to the list of affected users and automatically receive an email notification with the latest updates.
Post again if you have any other payroll or QuickBooks questions. I'm always here to help. Have a good day!
I am a ProAdvisor and have had several clients get this message - takes hours to fix - this is not acceptable. How can I suggest to clients to use QB when they can't get their payroll done without a constant battle regarding their paid subscriptions. There is no place for them to call and then it comes to me and it is difficult for me to charge them for my time fixing this. Very unhappy and dissatisfied with this service. Seems to be continuously going downhill.
I am trying to renew, Changed the payment method because the card had expired. My account says it is active but it will not process my payroll. Keeps telling me to reactivate my payroll
