Is anyone else having trouble accessing the tax center?

Hi sally40,


Let's run some troubleshooting steps to isolate the issue. Before doing so, did you receive an error message when accessing the tax center page?


For the meantime, let's open QuickBooks through an incognito window. This is the best place to identify for any browser-related issues since it does not store any caches. I've added these keyboard shortcuts to open one:


  • Google Chrome: Ctrl Shift N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl Shift P
  • Microsoft Edge: Ctrl Shift P
  • Safari: Command Shift N


If it works, we can go back to a regular browser and clear its cache. A piled cache can also be the reason for some unexpected issues on the opened pages.


We can also switch to a different supported browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.


Once everything's good, you can check this reference for more information about sales tax: Set up and use automated sales tax in QuickBooks Online.


Let me know how these steps work on your end. Take care!

This is not the impression we want you to experience, TrustyPhoenix. 


There are times when the browser's cache is damaged due to frequently accessed web pages. This prevents you from accessing the Tax Center page. To better isolate this issue, we can try signing in to QuickBooks Online (QBO) using a private or incognito window. This mode doesn't use the existing cache data and helps us confirm browser-related issues. Here's how:

  • For Google Chrome browser: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • For Mozilla Firefox browser: Ctrl + Shift + P 
  • For Safari browser: Command + Option + P


If it works, go back to your regular browser and clear the cache to delete those temporarily stored files and browsing history. The overtime collection of data can create corruption, however, removing this should fix the issue. You can also use supported, up-to-date browsers to roll out the possibility of a browser-related issue.


If the problem persists, I'd suggest contacting our Customer Support Team. They'll pull up your account in a secure environment and investigate what's causing this issue. You may send a message via chat, call us at a time convenient to you, or we’ll get in touch with you instead. To ensure we address your concern, our representatives are available from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM on weekdays and 6:00 AM - 3:00 PM on Saturdays, PST. See our support hours and types for more details about this one. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Help icon on the top right. 
  2. Enter your concern in the search field.
  3. Choose Talk to a human.
  4. Click the OK. To get you to the right human, in a few words, tell me what you need help with option and tap I still need a human
  5. Press Contact us.
  6. Tick Continue
  7. Choose Message an agent or Get a callback.
