QB Issue Resolution:

I can help resolve the error on line 8 so you can import your payroll successfully.

This error appears when the account type on line 8 is different from the existing one in the Chart of Accounts.

To resolve this:

  1. Check the source of the problem:
    a. Save the IIF file to your computer.
    b.Open the saved IIF file in Microsoft Excel.
    c. Look at line 8 of the Excel spreadsheet. This provides the account name and type that QuickBooks is expecting.
  2. Look at your QuickBooks chart of accounts to determine the type of account.
  3. Make corrections to the account by doing one of the following:
    • In QuickBooks, update the type of the account to match the expected type.
    • In the Export to QuickBooks section, update the account to match the type of account.
