Service charge for payroll

I recently purchased your services. I have yet to enter any data or run payroll and I was charged a service charge of 19.50 it also appears to have run the payroll from Dec28-Jan28. Please reverse this service fee as I have not entered employee data or 1099 data to run payroll. 


Seperatley - I purchase Online payroll services as part of my subscription,  is there going be a monthly service charge every time I run payroll even though I paid a monthly subscription fee for online payroll? Seems to be double dipping and a bait n switch.

Service charge for payroll



This is not a "bait and switch".  The payroll service is a separate charge per month.  You're charged the same price regardless of HOW many payrolls you run during that month.  That also includes if you don't run any payrolls that month.


If you were charged 19.50, it sounds like thats the 3 month 50% off normal price special for payroll.

Hello, @Anonymous.


Thank you for reaching out to the Community, I'll be happy to make sure you aren't getting charged any improper charges.


You shouldn't see any charges until after you have ran your first payroll. Please private message me your email address and I'll be able to look into your account to see why you're seeing this extra charge.

Service charge for payroll

When I downloaded QB Desktop Pro 2020, it came with the payroll feature.  I didn't ask for it and it has been pain answering the messages, such as "turn it on and try it", etc.  I didn't thing anything until later I noticed there was a user name of someone in Calif (which I can't delete) and a must CC.  But today I received an email from QB showing me a receipt for using/having the payroll.

[email address removed] has no employees and don't want employees.  we own 4 rental properties.  I can't reach anyone at Intuit, so how can I get rid of this payroll feature?
