      Thank you for your feedback. As you’ve experienced, QuickBooks Self-Employed’s purpose today is just to keep track of your business income and spending, but we do hear you, and recognize that not being able to track all of your finances (business as well as personal) in the same tool can be annoying. We currently don’t have upcoming plans to enable personal finance tracking in QuickBooks Self-Employed as it would open the door to too much additional tax and reporting complexity that we don’t believe we can effectively support in the near term. That said, your continued feedback on the issue helps to tip the scales toward creating a solution and accomodating that complexity. We’d love to hear more about how you track your personal finances today, Mint or otherwise, and what tracking your personal finances in QuickBooks Self-Employed would need to do in order to work for you. Thank you…

      • State Taxes

        State Self employment tax calculator. Its nice to know what we owe the federal government but a lot of states are going to charge us with self employment tax also.

          • 1099s

            show to do get to the 1099 forms we need to fill out would be very helpful. Having the matches for 1099's in the help section are not helpful as they are other users asking the same question.....

            • W2 income

              Hello, love the app.

              How do I categorize my W2 income from my regular full time job. Right now I have it as Personal.

              The business expenses and mileage I am claiming are applied to my 1099 - business income as a part time uber driver.

              Do Include my W2 income as business income? Or personal? Do the mileage and expenses apply W2 income as well?

              Thank you

                    It would be helpful if you would provide links to the quarterly tax forms!

                    • Assets and Depreciation

                      Please add the ability to add assets to the business profile, like a rental home for example, and then integrate depreciation into the tax estimates to better understand estimated taxes. Thanks.

                          there's no category for estimated local taxes. Can one be added?

                          • Joint filing options

                            Create another check box that is available for self-employed individuals who file jointly, the check box would ask if the spouses income is withheld by an employer. If yes, then the system should only use that income to calculate the tax bracket for estimated tax withholdings of the self-employed individual and NOT use the spouse's income with calculating the actual estimated tax payment.

                              • I would like to be able to map Q1, Q2, Q3 to their specific payments

                                I would like to be able to map Q1, Q2, Q3 to their specific payments and not split the amount. Example I owed Q1 for $100 but paid $150. I want the whole $150 to apply to Q1 and not split the amount and have the $50 to apply to Q2 as overpayment.
