Thanks for reaching out to us in the Community, bcar9.


May I know if you're getting a specific error when updating payroll?


This issue may be caused by a damaged Windows file or incorrect configuration of Internet Explorer.


First, let's run Reboot.bat. This process re-registers QuickBooks related .DLL and .OCX files in Microsoft Windows.


Next, restart your computer and open QuickBooks Desktop. Then, update the program and payroll.


Please follow the steps I've laid out below:


To update QuickBooks:

  1. Click Help at the top menu bar, then choose Update QuickBooks from the drop-down.
  2. Choose Update Now tab at the top.
  3. Tick the radio button next to Reset Update.
  4. Hit Get Updates.


To download the latest payroll tax table:

  1. Select Employees at the top menu bar, then choose Get Payroll Updates from the drop-down.
  2. Check the box next to Download Entire Update.
  3. Click the Download Latest Update button.
  4. Hit OK once the update is complete.
