QuickBooks Payroll Service Ending


I am running QuickBooks Pro 2016.  I just recently started getting a gold and blue "Important Notice" on the lower left corner of my screen.  It states, "On 5/31, Payroll service will no longer worth withy your version of QuickBooks."  Then in blue box states, "ACT NOW".

We do our payroll on our desktop QuickBooks.  I am assuming that this important note applies only to those who have QuickBooks do their payroll?  Does this effect me?  I only go online for tax table updates at this time. 


Please let me know ASAP!!!


Thank you,

Re: QuickBooks Payroll Service Ending

If you are using a 3 year old version then your Quickbooks won't support payroll. In such case you need to follow support team instructions.

Find team details on Quickbooks Website only.

Hello there, @yokoms,


The important notice you're getting on your account is a reminder you need to upgrade QuickBooks Desktop to the latest versions. This is to ensure your paycheck calculations are correct.


We send a notification via email as services for all versions of QuickBooks Desktop 2016 are scheduled to be discontinued after May 31, 2019. This includes add-on services such as Payroll, Online Banking, and Merchant Services.
