Thanks for sharing the error code you've got. I'll share some insights about this and on how to resolve it.
This error typically occurs if the latest tax table wasn't completely downloaded or installed. To fix this, I recommend reviewing the active and inactive items on the following lists for any invalid characters.
Payroll Item List
Employee Name List
Chart of Accounts
Company Information window
Go to Lists at the top, the select the group you want to review, then select the Includeinactive box.
Double-click the item.
Check if there's no invalid characters such as # or blank field.
