SOLUTION-1 Updating and applying MS TLS v 1.2
TLS ( Transport Security Layer) v1.2 is one of the most used Industrial security standards which is a security protocol for data exchange over the internet. After QuickBooks 2015 intuit has ended support for the older version of TLS ( 1.0, 1.1 ) so in this case, you must update to TLS 1.2, if not the E-File and E-Pay could get affected.
