Tax Penalty Free Guarantee

What is the Tax Penalty Free Guarantee?
Our Tax Penalty Free Guarantee means we’ve got you covered. If you receive a federal, state, or local payroll tax penalty from an error made while using QuickBooks Online Payroll Elite, we’ll help you resolve it and will reimburse any penalty and interest cost—up to $25,000 a year. It doesn’t matter who made the error. We will make it right.
What you need to do:You’ll need to meet the following requirements before you can be eligible for the Tax Penalty Free Guarantee. See “what’s not covered” below for more information.
  • Submit your electronic services authorization forms to Intuit so we can enroll you with the applicable federal, state, and local authorities. This way we can submit filings and process tax payments on your behalf. If you expand to new states you’ll need to enroll in electronic services there as well.
  • Let one of our payroll experts help you complete our Elite Expert Review after your initial payroll set-up, and take any necessary actions the expert identifies when checking over your account. This will ensure you’re set up right from the start. Once this review is complete and you take action to resolve any identified issues, your Tax Penalty Free Guarantee will be activated and a badge will appear on your overview screen.
  • In order to receive full penalty and interest reimbursement up to $25K, you have 15 days from the date printed on your first notice to send us a copy of your payroll tax notice (all pages) to taxnoticeresolution@intuit.com. Our tax notice resolution team will take it from there. If the team needs additional information from you, they will contact you for follow-up. The team will make three attempts to reach you via email and/or phone, typically over the course of 5 business days. If you don’t respond by end of day after the third attempt, Intuit will no longer be liable for any incremental penalties or incurred interest.
What you’ll get:
  1. Tax notice research and resolution assistance for payroll tax errors that occurred after you started using QuickBooks Online Payroll Elite. We will represent you (before the IRS and other agencies) and help you resolve your problem.*
  2. We’ll cover the penalty and interest for the payroll tax error—up to $25,000 per year (see “what’s not covered” below). First, the notice resolution team will confirm instructions to resolve the notice, including what you should pay and where. We will then refund your bank account via ACH transfer or mail you a paper check. If anyone ever pays unnecessary penalty and/or interest amounts (for notices sent by mistake or for issues that resulted from a government error), the agency may reimburse you directly.
  3. If a tax agency refunds you for a tax penalty we reimbursed you as a part of this Tax Penalty Free Guarantee, you will need to reimburse us for those funds.
If you’re doing everything you can to be accurate and resolve problems quickly, we’ve got you covered.
What’s not covered:
  • Payroll taxes. You still owe taxes, but we’ll cover the penalties and interest incurred for any payroll tax mistakes.
  • This guarantee doesn’t apply to other offerings, such as HR advisory services or workers’ comp.
  • Penalties or interest incurred for any non-payroll tax error. These include:
    • Administering employee benefits like health insurance.
    • Situations when your account wasn’t in good standing—Non Sufficient Funds (NSF) holds or credit card billing holds.
    • Mistakes related to your federal, state, or local wage laws but not directly related to the calculation of pay and taxes (e.g. miscalculating overtime or labor law violations such as not paying minimum wage, hiring underage workers, or not paying workers for total hours worked)
    • Miscategorizing worker classifications (like labeling someone as a contractor when they should be an employee).
     
  • Penalties or interest incurred outside of QuickBooks Online Payroll Elite, including errors made during periods prior to your first payroll date with Elite, from any paychecks run outside of Elite, or from tax payments or tax form filings made outside of Elite, including tax payments or tax form fillings made in other QuickBooks Online Payroll offerings.
  • Penalties and interest incurred after 15 days from the payroll tax notice date (the date found on your notice, not to be confused with the date of receipt of the notice). We will still cover the original penalty and interest identified on your first notice, but will not cover additional penalty or interest accruements if you don’t submit your notice within 15 days of the first notice date.
  • Penalties or interest accrued on an issue that occurred previously, and where Intuit has previously provided instructions to fix. This includes the “What you need to do” section above and is not limited to instructions our specialists provide via email during onboarding, your ongoing product usage, or notice resolution.
  • Penalties or interest due to willful or fraudulent omission or inclusion of information inputted by you to the Payroll Services.
  • Combined penalties and interest over $25,000 per year per business. A payroll tax notice this large is very rare. So, we’ll be on the lookout for any issues that might cause it.
If you have questions along the way, we’re here to help.*We cannot help resolve notices for customers in Collections with the IRS because IRS Collections will only work with businesses directly. We can, however, coach you through it.
