@skaczmarekI don't suppose you figured out a solution to this issue? I'm having the same issue today and none of the standard troubleshooting articles are helping. I thought I would ask before I jump on a 2 hour phone call with Intuit...
I appreciate the steps you've performed when trying to fix the issue you're getting, @wendylacroix.
Since the solution provided doesn't work on your end, we can proceed by updating your QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release. Once completed, restart your computer, and download the latest payroll tax table update.
To update QuickBooks manually:
When the update finishes, close and reopen QuickBooks Desktop. To install the updates, select Yes. Then, restart your computer.
To update your payroll tax table, tap Get Payroll Updates from the Employees tab. Then, select the Download Entire Update radio button and tap Update.
Once everything is back in place, open this link for more information about sending payroll and direct deposit paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll
As always, read our help articles as your reference while working with QuickBooks in the future.

I've done all of these things. I had an expert on chat and he told me to wait for a phone call. No help. I have submitted two requests for phone calls and no one has called yet. Our payroll is on a deadline. Need some assistance asap.

This error is still under investigation by engineering however the work around is calling in or requesting a call for help. There is a verification problem related to modifying Direct Deposit information (adding / changing). Customer Support can request engineering to put a stop on erroneous error so you can push payroll through, all while you're on hold. I ran into this issue today, I modified an hourly employees direct deposit on 08/18/20 and am now attempting to run payroll today for our semi monthly salaried employees - Error Problem adding new data to QB. Inconsistent data in downloaded employees. **Its an ongoing issue but my immediate problem was resolved in about 15 minutes**
What number do you call for help? The number I have says no one available and directs me to HELP section of Quickbooks. I am having this error too - changed an employee's direct deposit info and now I cant submit payroll.

Thank for the replay.
We do not have the "contact" button.
We put in a call to customer service and they were able to fix the issue while on the phone. The issue had to do with us changing a direct deposit acct. Doing this triggered whatever error QB is having; we did not somehow change the account wrong.
I will hope to see payroll sail through without issue this week.
Yes, as mentioned on the thread by another user they got it resolved by contacting our Technical Support team.

Just FYI according to Quickbooks assisted payroll support there is nothing the user can do to fix an "inconsistent Data" error when trying to send payroll to them. You must contact Quickbooks assisted payroll support so they can sync up the data both ends.
Trying to send payroll now and getting the error Problem adding new data to QuickBooks. Inconsistent data in downloaded employees. The same error occurred last payroll and was only resolved by a QB tech on THEIR END - nothing was done to my QB file. After the interaction with the tech, I sent payroll without issue. Now it's happening again. I've been waiting in a chat for a tech to join for over 30 minutes. I have to send payroll today!! Is this going to occur every payroll going forward??

I am having this same technical issue while trying to send my payroll today.
I have been to multiple threads, 3 chats which were all bumped/closed and a call which sent a ASSISTED PAYROLL link, which is still open with no response.
I receiving the same error: problem adding new data to QB/Inconsistent data in downloading employees.
I have used QB since 2011 and never had a issue such as this.
Please help me resolve this issue so EE's can be paid at least one day late.
