manual payroll tax payment

When I enter Taxes and then Payroll taxes and then after selecting a payroll tax to pay manually the dropdown selection for the bank to draw the money from does not work. It used to work before the latest update. The payment will withdraw from the QBO default account no matter what I select in the bank dropdown selection. What is the bank dropdown selection for if I cant select the bank to withdraw form in QuickBooks?

Hi there, @tomkap.


Thanks for coming and posting your concerns today. When you experience an unexpected behavior while using QuickBooks, it could mean that your cache and cookies are already full and need to be cleared.


I want to make sure you're able to select your desired bank account in paying your payroll tax. Let's confirm this issue by using a private or incognito window. 


To do this, open a regular browser. Then, press the following shortcut keys below:


  • Press Ctrl Shift (Google Chrome)
  • Ctrl Shift (Firefox)
  • Control Option (Safari)


Log in to your QBO account and try to select the bank to pay your taxes manually. If it works, let's troubleshoot your default browser by clearing its cache and cookies to restore the system and eliminate older data that causes performance issues. 


However, if the issue persists, I'd recommend using other supported browsers.


I'd also appreciate it if you can provide any specific error message you received when doing so. This way, I can quickly check our records for any investigation.

I think its a bug I tried your suggestions  and used Microsoft Edge and Chrome icagnito with the same results. My accountant tried it on her computer also with the same results. It defaults to the account in the settings not the account you select from the dropdown menu.

Your suggestions did not work. I cleared the cache and used the browsers incognito


I tried on Microsoft Edge and Chrome and I even had my accountant in another office use it and it still would not poet to the selected bank account

I did a chat online with specialist who told me basically to ignore the bank dropdown list on the tax payment screen since it doesn't work and  change the bank account in the payroll settings when I run the payroll and then change the account  back again when I do the taxes. Very cumbersome for something that used to work for years.
