I have been trying to talk with someone all day about a charge on my credit card on an item that i didn't order and no one ever calls back even though the recording says it will. This is the worst customer service I have ever heard or received. This is a negative and I will contact the BBB about getting the charge off my card. If you feel you want at this time to help me contact me . Joye

Have a charge on credit card statement. Not showing in my history. Been 45 minutes trying to get a "live" person to find out what charge is for. The customer service at Intuit gets a zero from me. Absolutely Ridiculous

Regarding "Quickbooks Online":
Their "Support" is not really "support". Their accounting methods, (whatever they are), are either totally their own, unknown, or their "support people" have no idea how to explain them. Coming from proper double entry accounting, I needed to properly map my chart of accounts to their accounting. I thought that a simple call with their "support" would solve this, yet the only thing that call did was show me that if anyone knows accounting with the "quickbooks online team", they likely do NOT work for their "support" department!
I was given wrong and completely dangerous accounting advice by this "support" person 3 different times. BEWARE! They are the best for web-based accounting, but their methods are NOT the same as double-entry accounting in Sage Accounting/Simply Accounting. I wasted 2 years of business bookeeping with Quickbooks 13 years ago, and I am thankful that I only wasted 2 days this time!

impossible to talk to a human.... the worst customer service I have ever seen... last time I ever buy your product.

The customer service is the worst. Calls are transferred overseas. For this reason, I am looking into other accounting programs.

AWFUL EXPERIENCE trying to update software for multi-user system. Called for a simple problem and some woman named Kirti was so condescending and nasty!!! Wasted about 45 minutes to 1 hour of my time (while my bookkeeper sat waiting) for something that should have been a two minute resolution.
SO NICE THAT QUICKBOOKS SENDS THEIR CUSTOMERS OVERSEAS TO DEAL WITH INDIA WHERE YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE ACCENT.
VERY DISGUSTED WITH QUICKBOOKS!!!

Your customer support is an absolute JOKE. I needed a simple answer concerning the install of a second copy of Quick Books Pro 2012. Not only was I not able to get any type of answer, the "support rep" had no idea on how to resolve my issue. You folks tout your product and support as being very good. As far as I can your product is good, but only as good as your support.

I think it would be a less painful experience to let water drip on my head for 2 hours than to talk to another person in the Philippines to resolve ANY kind of issue regarding Quickbooks. The people at Intuit are a bunch of idiots if they think this kind of customer support is useful at all. What a total waste of time. I spent 2 hours today just trying to get them to understand that I simply wanted to change some company information in there system (after THEY messed it up to begin with) because they CANNOT make out what I am saying. NOR can I understand them!!! And they always sound so damn chipper. So nice! AhHHHHHHHHH. The language barrier is exhausting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get it right Intuit!!! Wake up!

Worst customer service ever. I can't help you, call this number, I can't help call this number. I just did. Pay this. Upgrade this. 3 days later still not working. Can't find anyone who speaks clearly and don't even think about finding someone in the US... Terrible!!!!

I've been on hold for 15 minutes and 38 seconds so far just to ask about the product.

I ordered a tutorial to see if this product is something I would suggest to my company to invest in. Right out of the gate, I was told it was a one time charge. I had to pay to learn about their product. Ok.?!!?? Did that. Then I was reassured that it would be a one time charge. Ya think!?
I couldn't get passed the downloading process hardly and got stuck with it asking me about my company license number/information of which it needed to move forward with my tutorial....Ok. I don't have that! Duh.
Been on hold for almost 32 minutes trying to cancel my tutorial...and the MONTHLY fee of $29.95 per month on my company credit card. What BS!!

The worst customer service EVER. Problem still not resolved. My problem is not an uncommon issue and the idiots in tech service act like they have never heard of anything like my problem. I hate them. They do not have command of the Rnglish language. I was on the phone repeating myself for 4 hours with no resolution. They sent my issue to another department and told me they would get back to me via email. The email began with: you case were forwarded...... And ended with a request for information that I had already emailed them. They asked me to: please revert this email. When you get his kind of stuff in writing you know you are in trouble!

I have been using QB Pro for 3+ years and am totally frustrated with trying to get help for an ongoing issue ( or issue, I should say).... I find the Indian support people to be very polite and they do their best but obviously the language barrier adds to the frustration........AND THEY CAN'T solve the problems!! I have been to the top tier (don't even get me started on this stupid tier system!!)after DAYS of p***ing around at lower levels without having any positive results. I need to speak to a technical person who understands the reasons for error messages and can help me fix it - a person who speaks and understands English would be a bonus! There is no drive on the part of Quickbooks to resolve problems and no regard for time loss on the part of their customers. This 'service' now costs our company about $115.00 per month.....for WHAT????? I'd switch to SIMPLY ACCOUNTING in a minute except that my days in this position are numbered - soon it will be somebody else's problem!

Unfortunatley I have spoken with Quickbooks for the first time and would not recommend their tech support. With two months using this program, they are telling me that I must give them 59.95 to find out why I am having a default problem open. Yesterday, someone w/o iding themselves wanted immediate remote access. Something is wrong with dealing with the tech support in India. This is why I like Apple, at least they back up their programs.

I have talked with numerous individuals within Intuit and Quickbooks through the years and it is one of the most frustrating company to do business with. Not one of the of the individuals have a mastery of the English language which leads to the inability to communicate effectively. They lack the comprehension and ability to communicate in the English that I know and expect.

I can not understand how this place stays in business. They have incompetent people working the phones & continue to keep you on the hold for 25 minutes with out any thing being resolved. I have been continuously contacting them since Nov. 2012 for my promised refund that would be put back on my account within 7-10 days and am still waiting,( have called 9 times) Since November of Last year!!! Best of all they give false numbers for service request numbers so when you call back no one of course knows what you are talking about!!Or the supervisor states I will personally take care of this & I will call you back!!! Guess what no call again. I am reporting them to the BBB. I HAVE FINALLY HAD IT WITH QBOOKS.

I have been a Turbo Tax customer for years without a complaint. The 2012 tax return version is in trouble and no one seems to care.
I have been trying for 3 days to get Tech Support from God knows where to have a conversation in Engilsh with me to no avail.
This latest call in my mind appears to be fraud. The Representative said my free phone support consisted on call to give them my information and they would not provide any support unless I paid them $200. I only paid $80.00 for the program. The Tech support person got a lot of information but I stopped short of my credit card and that is when I was told how much it would cost.
This is not free phone support. In fact it is no support at all.
Intuit has lost control of its customer service and apparently has no one to fix it in my opinion.
Finding the customer service number took too much research and the assinine wait until after 4-15 defeats the purpose of why I bought the program. My dilemna is I have clients I cannot service as their file won't come up. We installed the program it worked fine for input for one day and from that day forward will not work. We followed all the do this do that and it should work. WELL IT DOES NOT WORK. I will lose clients and income and perhaps even my business because of this program's failure to operate and deceptive promises on non existent tech support. I need help. I am 78 years old and not computer literate enough to follow the many directions and paid for help to assist me. They gave me back the money and said buy a new program from somebody else. I want help from intuit now yet no one seems to care to help me now or about the fact that I am a long term customer.
I believe Intuit has the responsibility to assist me in repairing this defective program without charging me $200. to do it.
I am Evelyn Portier owner of Portier Accounting Services. Please call me and help me. My customer no. is:
I was unable to change the heading to turbo tax which is where my problems are not Quick books. so I typed in my problem anyway.

I Just got off the phone with Quickbooks. We purchase their software and was using it, then the invoice email feature stopped working and they tried selling us an upgrade. I am no longer going to communicate directly with this company and will turn everything over to our attorney.
What they did to us, they must be doing to thousands and someone must take a stand. I am open to anyone who could recommend any good accounting software.

Customer Service is a BIG joke! On Feb. 18, 2013, I updated my QuickBooks. The rep charged sales tax, which our institution is taxed exempt. He told me I had to contact customer service to resolve the issue. I was on the phone for over an hour explaining the issue I needed resolved and six different representatives told me I needed to talk to someone else and then they would transfer me to them. By the time I got off the phone I was so frustrated I couldn't hardly stand it. I was instructed to fax and/or send them a copy of our tax exempt certificate. I faxed it the same day and the issue is still NOT resolved nor have I received an invoice. This company is ridiculous and incompetent!

HORRIBLE customer service. Manager left company with admin password. Needed a reset on 2008 version. Utility provided by Intuit did not work. Called back. Thick accented representive who answered after 12 minute hold, took all my information then told me I needed to upgrade versions before he could help me.

I recently recieved my email about the price increase and automatic renewal of my payroll subscription. I tried getting online to cancel my credit card for the automatic renewal and could not cancel my card, however, I could change to another card.
So I called and after 45 minutes of Bull crap from some idiot from yeman, I got disconnected on a transfer. I then spent another 30 minutes to find out that they can not remove my card info, but will "uncheck" me from the automatic renewal.... I will never use the service again. poor customer service for the product.

My Quickbooks Thanksgiving Nightmare
On the morning of November 21, 2012, I called Quickbooks to gain assistance with a supposedly “simple” Quickbooks update from my 2012 version to the newer 2013 version. I felt confident about the transfer—as a QB’s representative remoted into our system and assisted me in installing version 13 on our server as well as at 8 other work stations. All seemed to be going well, until my boss noted that his name was missing from the employee list.
At this point, I called back and after repeating my story to several representatives and waiting for them to try many different “fixes”, I was finally told that my version 12 must have been corrupted. This being the case, since we put the new 13 version over a corrupted 12, we now had a problem which could only be fixed by reinstalling my damaged version 12 and uploading it for a Data Services manual repair. I was told that the general turn-around time is usually two days. By this time, it was about 7:00pm Thanksgiving eve. However, I was assured that since Quickbooks Data Services employees were actually working on Thanksgiving Day as well as the Friday after, that the file would be ready for downloading by Friday, the 23rd.
Although I did not really expect the file until Monday, the 27th, I made a status call from home on Friday using the voice mail method they recommend but was unable to gain a status. By the way, although the representatives often offer a direct phone number [(866) 340-7237], there is no direct line to anyone at Quickbooks and the only way to contact Data Services is by leaving a voice mail and or sending an e-mail in which the response time is supposed to be within two hours.
By Monday, the 27th no one had contacted me so I tried to contact them both by voice mail and e-mail. In response I received one voice mail which informed me that I should upload my file—as data services had not received it. While on hold with Quickbooks to check on this strange voice mail, I decided to check my e-mail and found an e-mail that had been sent from Data Services at 6:47am that same day (11/27/12), which informed me that they had received my file and were working on it. The e-mail promised that it would be ready for download by the 23rd (strange since it was already the 27th). Anyway, after being placed on hold and speaking with numerous representatives both on Monday and Tuesday (the 26th and the 27th), I received a Data Services e-mail on Tuesday the 27th at 12:56pm which advised that the file was fixed and ready for download. This became somewhat confusing—as they had actually sent the “Upload” and not the “Download”.
Finally, at about 3:00pm the download was available. I worked with a representative to update our file only to find that the newly repaired file which had been converted to version 13 was running very slow and taking over 25 minutes to complete an export. At that point, I called support again and was told by a representative that my file was, in fact, corrupt and should be sent back to data services. Since we needed to run payroll, I refused to send the file back to data services without first attempting to enlist management support—as the idea of going without our company file for several more days with no communication from data services regarding the status of the file was not very tempting. While I may be thankful for Quickbooks, I am not very appreciative of their Customer Service to say the least.
1. Why is there no number for Data Services? If they are going to repair customer files, they should have a direct contact number.
2. I have been told there is a “trick” to reaching the proper department. Apparently, one must be sure to hit the prompt for customer service, and then use the proper prompt for technical/and or business applications support. However, this time-consuming “trick” is not working for me. Besides, once someone does come on the line, I had to go through 30 minutes of screening and more holding before getting to the proper department. Getting the customer to the right department should not be a “trick”, but a simple and speedy process.
3. What is the point of offering the case reference number—as I found the employee would ask for a case number and continue to ask me to detail the problem before transferring me to someone else. What is the purpose of offering the case number if I still have to discuss the entire issue before being transferred to the correct party?
4. Most technical support people I have reached have sounded far away and have been difficult to understand. Customers deserve support people who are able to properly communicate with the customer.
5. In addition to heavy accents and poor phone lines, these individuals always seem to feel the need to say, “Don’t worry ma’am” sometime during the conversation. When coming from someone I can barely understand, this line actually worries me a lot.

Quickbooks payroll service is horrible. Only method of payment anymore is credit card or bank account direct debit and we are a non profit organization and are paid by the state and pay all our bills by check only because they want to see physical check when doing our audits. I sent them a check for our payroll subscription update and at first they could not find it and then they returned it saying they could not post it as payment. You cannot trust them with a credit card because they want to use it automaticly each year to renew without anyones permission to do so. We cannot do business that way and they do not understand what that means and they are not customer friedly. They could care less, their attitude is, take it or leave it. If you are smart stay as far away from them as possible, use Peachtree or some other program that has better service and really wants you as a customer. That is all I can say for now, but Quickbooks is horrible and would not recommend them at all to anyone.
