There can be multiple reasons why you are unable to pay the Tax Liabilities in QuickBooks, the network error means either there is an application interfering with QuickBooks and not allowing it to communicate to the desired servers properly. Possible cause of this kind of problem can be that QuickBooks does not have enough privileges or there are other services or programs interfering with QuickBooks.


You would need to follow below steps in order to resolve this problem:

  2. Go to Properties
  3. Click on the Compatibility Tab

  5. Click on Apply and then OK


Start Windows in Selective Startup Mode

  2. Enter msconfig and click on OK
  3. Go to the General Tab
  4. Click on the Selective Startup radio button
  5. Go to the Services tab
  6. Click on Hide all Microsoft Services checkbox
  7. Click the Disable All button
  8. Uncheck the Hide all Microsoft Services checkbox
