How do I correct this error message from QB online payroll? See screen shot

Hi there, @Kahuna1. I'll help you import your file into QuickBooks.

 

Based on your screenshot, it seems like you're using QuickBooks Desktop. You'll get this error message when you're importing an account with the same name but different account types. I'd suggest changing their names, such as "Health Ins Expense" or "Health Ins Liability."

 

To edit the account's name in QuickBooks, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Lists menu and select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Right-click on the Health Ins account that you want to edit.
  3. Select Edit Account.
  4. Update the account name.
  5. Select Save & Close.

 

Additionally, you can export, import, and edit IIF files. You can use IIF files to import and export your lists and transactions to and from QuickBooks Desktop. 

 

I'm always here if you need more help with importing files into QuickBooks. I'd be happy to help.
