unable to export intuit payroll to quickbooks online

I have been using Intuit payroll and quickbooks online for years and just recently started getting error messages when I add a garnishment and then go to export the payroll to quickbooks online. I was getting an error message stating that payroll could not find an account with that name. I did all the same set up as usual but suddenly it no longer worked. the account was there in quickbooks (because i set it up ahead of time) and the drop down box found it and I selected it but continued getting an error message stating that payroll could not find the account. Called intuit payroll and they said it was quickbooks online issue. Called quickbooks online and they sent me back to intuit payroll. I jury rigged a go around temporarily (just used an account that was no longer being used). However I now have a new employee with a new garnishment and its happening again. Called intuit payroll last week and a fella took a remote look at my screen while I did as he asked and he was unable to solve the issue and in fact made it worse. so as of now I cannot export ANYTHING (I was able to export all paychecks except for the one). I can't export any payroll at all now. Its like the payroll lost its connections to quickbooks online and can't find it anymore. 


I was told that there was an investigation, and was given a number. No expediting, no management getting involved, no discussion with any tech person. This issue is months old. If they don't have it fixed by now I don't have any hope its gonna get fixed soon. 


Anyone have any ideas on what to do next?  Anyway I can call someone that can actually DO something. I can't balance my books and move forward till this issue gets fixed.

Did you ever figure this out? I added a garnishment recently and now when I try to export to Quickbooks online it tells me to set up the account in preferences. When I to export preferences I get this message "Connection with your QuickBooks Online company has expired, please set up your export again by logging into your QuickBooks Online account". I have tried for 2 days to get my accounts reconnected.

Thanks for joining the thread, @lperry82.


I can provide you with additional details about the export process. Make sure that you already set up QuickBooks Online accounts for payroll data and classes.


When the connection to your QuickBooks Online (QBO) company has expired, I'd suggest login into an Intuit Account. That way, it'll connect your IOP account to your QBO company once you sign in. For reference, you can check this article for the detailed steps: Setup export of IOP data to QuickBooks Online.


If the issue persists, I encourage reaching our IOP Tech Support team to check what other data caused this hurdle and fix it promptly. You can also follow the steps provided by my peer, GlinetteC, to contact our QBO support.


Feel free to tag me in your comment if you need further assistance. I can help you anytime. Stay safe!

After 2 days of troubleshooting and trying to get a real person on chat I finally got someone this evening. 3 hours later he had to escalate my problem to another department and I will be contacted by email. It’s very frustrating that there is not a number to call. I need to speak on the phone to a real person that speaks clear English that can do a screen share. This is a sync issue. I’ve done all the troubleshooting and more multiple times.
