Can't show my pay stb

Hey there, QI Duan.

Thanks for reaching out the Intuit Community. Let me help get past the error so you can view the paystubs.

I looked into this and we don't currently have open investigations about the We weren't able to show your payroll info error. I recommend trying some troubleshooting to see if this is browser related.

To start off, access the QuickBooks Workforce website using a private browser or an incognito window. This is a feature on the web which allows you to browse without storing any data history.

Here’s how:


  • For Internet Explorer or Firefox, press Ctrl + Shift + P.
  • For Chrome, press Ctrl + Shift + N.
  • For Safari, hold down Command + Shift + N.

If you are able to log in to the QuickBooks Workforce site smoothly, go back to your regular browser and clear the cache to boost the overall performance of the application. Here’s an article that will guide you through the process: How do I clear temporary internet files and cache?


After performing these steps, you should see your paycheck information online.

Let me know if you get the chance to try all these suggestions and what the results are. I'll be right here to assist you further. Have a good one.

I am having the same issue and also tried all the above that was suggested.  The Error is still showing every time I try to login.  Any suggestions?

I thank you for sharing the troubleshooting steps you’ve performed on your end, @ChristinaBoyer22.

 Currently, there's an ongoing investigation regarding accessing and viewing your user's payroll information. Our Product Engineers are working on releasing a permanent resolution about this issue.

Since we don't have a specific time frame on when this will be resolved, I'd suggest contacting your employer and ask for a paper copy of your paystub.


In addition, so you’ll be added on the affected user’s lists, I’d recommend contacting our Customer Care Team. Rest assured, once an update is released about these ongoing investigation, you’ll be notified via an email.


Here’s how to contact us:

  1. Visit: QuickBooks Workforce Support.
  2. Click on Live Chat link.

Keep me posted if you have other questions. I’m just a few posts away.

I work as a Payroll Manager, and a few employees came to me and showed me this error. Just noticed the date of the first post, this has been an issue since February? Is there already a solution to this?

When I asked my boss for paper pay stub for medical insurance purposes he sent me to Viewmypaycheck. I’m getting the same error as everyone else. If my boss says you guys have my paycheck and you guys apparently don’t, then what am I supposed to do?

Hi, it is now August and am noticing this thread started in February... I had originally reached out to customer support two months ago when two of my employees reported they could not see their paystubs with the same error as shown above. I was told then that engineers were working on solving the problem, and we would receive an email when things were resolved. Unfortunately, my employees are still having the same problem... the time-frame on this "fix" is getting ridiculous. Any updates for all the people affected?

Hello, CM13.

I'd be glad to help point you in the right direction concerning payroll information not showing on the pay stub.


For now, the most recent update that I have is that our engineering banking team is actively working to determine why the payroll information is not showing on the pay stub We are still investigating this unexpected behavior.


As much as I’d like to add you in the list of affected users, the Community space is a peer-to-peer forum, I don't want your account information displayed here for security reasons.


It would be best if you reach out to our QuickBooks Support who can review the details and make sure that you'll be provided with the right resolution. That way, our engineers can send you updates via email when they are available.


To reach us, please follow these steps:


  1. Within your QuickBooks Desktop, click Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Click Contact us.
  3. To route you to the correct support expert, we need to know what type of question you have. Give a brief description of your issue and click Continue.
  4. We’ll provide you a few options. You choose which one is best for you.

You can get more details in this article about QuickBooks Workforce: QuickBooks Workforce: Access your paychecks and W-2’s online.


I'll be here in the Community, is you need more help with pay stubs. Have a nice day.

Cant view my paystubs 

QuickBooks Team

Thanks for joining this conversation, @Lindaoil2. I'd like to know if you get any error message when you're trying to view your paystubs? 


For now, I'd suggest you use a private browser or an incognito window to see if it will work. Then, let's perform some troubleshooting steps in your default browser once the browser-related issue is confirmed. 


To open a private or incognito window from any of our supported browsers, follow these shortcut keys below:


  • Chrome simply press Ctrl + Shift + N on your keyboard.
  • Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, press Ctrl + Shift + P.
  • Safari, press Command + Shift + N. Make sure you're using the latest version.


Login to your Workforce and check your paystub. If it works, that means it's a browser-related issue. Go back to your main browser to fix it by clearing its cache and temporary file


If you're still unable to view your paystub, try using a different browser.


I'd be glad to know how it goes, @Lindaoil2. We're always around to help if you need further assistance.

I just started a new job about a month ago, and haven't been able to view my paystub because of this error message. I have tried multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari) both in normal mode and incognito, and on multiple devices (Windows/MacOS), and the result is always the same. 


How is it possible that a financial company responsible for providing payroll information as a service, can't seem to fix an issue like this in over a year 1/2?


Also, expecting the company who you work for to provide paystubs because Intuit can't find a solution to this problem is ridiculous, THEY ARE PAYING YOU FOR THIS SERVICE!


What is the status of finding a fix for this issue?

This thread is years old- mine says same thing and I have tried all of thee above along with 3 different computers and the app and all the same. This is unacceptable- how do I access these.

I agree- I am a professional with other businesses and I may be switching all together. We looked into getting quickbooks and switching but after this experience and seeing for over a year no resolution would tell me either they are not working on this or staff is questionable in regards to computer tech ability
