    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…

  2. Multiple Business Tracking

    It would be nice to be able to track more then one business.

    Thank you for your feedback! We hear you that often you need to be able to keep track of multiple vehicles at the same time.

    To give a little insight into why this isn’t available yet, in order for us to release this feature we have to configure the connection between TurboTax in such a way that we would be able to send mileage tracking data for multiple vehicles from QuickBooks Self-Employed to TurboTax. We’re actively looking into how to make this work.

    As soon as we have any updates on this idea, we’ll post them here.

  4. Upgrade to QuickBooks Online

    An 'upgrade your account' button within the settings.

    Thanks for your feedback! We know there may come a time where your business grows and you need the more robust accounting features of QuickBooks Online. While today it is possible to switch over, it’s a very manual process and makes it difficult to easily move over your data from QuickBooks Self-Employed.

    We’re actively researching the best way to solve this problem. As soon as we have any details to share, we’ll post them here.

  5. Retirement deductions

    able to categorize SEP and 401K/pre-taxed items

    Thank you for all the feedback! We totally agree with how important tracking retirement deductions is for your Estimated Taxes.

    While we don’t have anything specific planned right now, we are reviewing your feedback and thinking through how we can best solve this problem. As soon as we have any updates to share, we’ll post them here.

  6. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! Similar to what we shared with the idea for adding multiple vehicles, adding the ability to track State Taxes has implications for sending data to TurboTax, but also would require that we provide a great experience for how to pay your estimated State taxes.

    We’re reviewing your feedback and researching how we could solve for this need. As soon as we have anything to share, we’ll post it here.

  7. Inventory

    Need the ability to categorize Inventory Purchases. This is on the Schedule C under COGS. As of now, my purchases are being imported but I can't properly categorize them.
