Filing & Paying Payroll Taxes

Just wondering if anyone else has been having an issue with paying and filing payroll taxes through QuickBooks Online?  We've been having an issue since the end of January and every time we contact support get "we know we have an issue and are working on it".  We have been working around this by going to each states applicable website to file our monthly/quarterly reports and pay taxes but this has been going on for over six months now.  Is anyone else having this issue?

I have en escalation number [removed]


It started when we received 68 emails from intuit titled "We've Changed your State Tax Deposit Schedule".  The content of the messages was:

In a tax deposit period for (company name), you have created payroll(s) with a state tax due amount that requires more frequent tax deposits.  We have changed your state tax deposit schedule from Quarterly to Monthly, effective 01/22/2020.


To see your state tax deposit schedule, sign in to your payroll account, click the Setup tab, then click Tax Setup


We we go to file, the error we receive is:

There's a problem with your request.
Tax payments have been made for periods on or after 01/22/2020, therefore the deposit schedule may not be changed.
