It is ridiculous that I was on the phone with the support person around 2PM. The support person told me that e-file were not an option for me. I then called the IRS and submitted payment manually.
I was then notified via an automated email at 6:47PM, conveniently after all of the Quickbooks support options shut down, that Quicbooks has also submitted the same payment.
Welcome aboard to the Community, @Exhausted Quick-Books User.
I understand how important making payments on time, and at the same time avoiding making duplicates. Before starting, I need to ask a question about the federal tax you're paying to IRS.
Can you share what specific federal payment you're trying to e-pay through QuickBooks Online? Any additional information you can add will help ensure a timely solution.
For now, I recommend you check the status through these steps:
To check if you can stop the payment from QuickBooks, I recommend you proceed with contacting our Payroll Support Team. Let’s log in to your company to view the support details:
You can reach them within this time: Monday to Friday from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Saturday 6:00 AM - 2:30 PM PST.

I received another automated email today saying that my state taxes will be withdrawn from my bank account.
Once again, I was told by Quickbooks support personnel that I cannot electronically file these taxes and must do them manually. So I did that, and now I'm being told via an email at 8PM after all of your substandard support options have officially shut down for the day. What a ridiculous negligent thing to do!
I have asked my bank to put all quickbooks withdrawals on hold until I find a suitable replacement. Please consider yourself notified that I do not consent to Quickbooks making these withdrawals from my bank.

This whole thing is ridiculous. I just saw the duplicate charges posted in my bank account. Ridiculous, negligent, infuriating!!
Horrible horrible customer service
I’d feel the same way you do, @Exhausted Quick-Books User.
I can't imagine how upsetting it is to handle this situation since it is an inconvenience in your time and money. This time, I'd still encourage you to contact our Payroll Care Support again so someone can help you trace and investigate the history of your tax payment.

Just documenting subsequent events here for everyone in the same position.
Quickbooks support was not able to help me. They gave me the phone numbers for IRS/EFTPS and State tax support. I called them both myself to figure out how I can fix Quickbooks' mistake. EFTPS mentioned that they can't reimburse and that I should dispute the charge with my bank instead. State mentioned that there was no way for them to reimburse. However, I may eventually file a tax return and report the duplicate charge. They also told me that disputing the charge with my bank is always an option. However, they may assess a $50 fee.
Now the State tax is debited from my account by Quickbooks (not the State). Quickbooks then pays that to the State on my behalf (I'm assuming there is some money magic in the middle which is beneficial to Quickbooks which is why this practice is in place). So, disputing this charge with my bank will (rightfully) return me my money from Quickbooks' account. I'm guessing I'm going to go ahead and do this.
I spend 4-6 hours a week since this happened waiting for Quickbooks support to call me and then go back and forth re-explaining my issue and then getting a response which does not solve my problem. As per the last call I called in to the EFTPS and State tax dept directly and they have told me to dispute the charge. So, that's what I'm going to do since it is impossible to actually get Quickbooks on the phone or chat.
