IL Account Number for Payroll

I recently set up payroll for Illinois and am being prompted to enter my IL account number. I am unsure why, as I have all numbers with MyTax IL. What number is QuickBooks seeking and how do I obtain?

IL Account Number for Payroll

Hello there, globetreader569.


You can re-enter the IL Account Number and make sure that it follows the format. For example: 12-3456789000 or 12-3456789001   FEIN + 3 digits, usually 000 or 001.


If you are still prompted with the same message, I'd suggest contacting one of our Phone Support Specialists. They have more tools available to check on this further.


Here's a link where you can get our contact information:
