Warning: To do this task, you must have a bank account set up for E-pay in QuickBooks
When attempting to send an e-payment, you get the following message:
Warning: To do this task, you must have a bank account set up for E-pay in QuickBooks.
You will enable a bank account for E-pay.
You have an active QuickBooks Desktop payroll subscription.
This warning appears when the bank account you are using for E-pay is not enabled.
To enable your bank account for E-pay:
Verify that the bank account at the top of the check is the correct bank account used for e-payments.
Choose Employees > Payroll Center.
In the Payroll Center, go to the Pay Liabilities tab. At the bottom, from the Other Activities list, click Change Payment Method.
Select E-pay accounts on the left.
Make sure the exact account listed for the Payroll Liability check (the same default account selected in step 1) is Enabled for E-pay.
If the account is not selected, click the account, verify the routing number, account number, and whether Checking or Savings is selected.
If there is more than one bank account enabled for E-pay, disable the E-pay account you are not using by removing the routing and account numbers.
