Fixing the Tax Data Version Error Following Dynamics AX 2012 Payroll Tax Update KB 3156738

by | Updated June 9, 2017 | Dynamics AX, Payroll

After applying the Dynamics AX 2012 Tax update, released in April 2016 (KB 3156738), a client was not seeing their Tax data version in the Human Resources shared parameters form. They were receiving the following errors when trying to run the “Update tax data”:

  • An error occurred accessing the tax engine.  Please check your installation.
  • Microsoft Dynamics any type cannot be marshaled to CLR Object.
