What features should we work on?

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.

We’ll send you updates on this idea

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.

    More than a year has gone by and they have not added this. Can anyone recommend a software that does estimated state tax?

    This is a very necessary upgrade .Please consider adding this feature as soon as possible. Thank you.

    Please add California estimated taxes as well. It will further my recommendations of your products.

    I agree with all the previous comments that a state tax estimator for quarterly taxes is CRITICAL. This year my revenue is enough that I owe quarterly payments in California (good for me), but the work that goes into this is still substantial. The federal estimator was a life saver for me last year and made QBSE the killer app—now I need you guys to kill it with the state taxes!! You guys deliver consistently; please make it happen for us growing businesses (so we can stay with you!).

    State Estimated Taxes recorded as "state taxes" in the ledger aren't showing up on the "tax details" or the "tax summary" report, while Federal estimated taxes do show up on this report. I need a report to be able to show my CPA how much I paid in State taxes. Most businesses pay state taxes. And even if quickbooksSE won't help calculate them, the least you can do is help us record/report properly for our CPA.

    Also need to categorize both Federal and State estimate payments to a separate category that we can get a report showing the personal transactions and see this.

    Yes - PLEASE add sales tax calculations. I think this is fundamental with any invoicing software!

    It should also include a way to indicate the taxing authority and percent. I am an itinerant sales person and must collect sales tax to more than one entity. I also have non-taxable sales, either to wholesale customers or tax exempt entities.

    It's pretty standard to have tool calculate state tax and add it to the invoice. My zipbooks account allows me to type in my BIN and location. The tool automatically calculates and adds the tax.

    It would be a huge help to have the same functionality currently available for federal estimated taxes, for state taxes too... or at least a page to calculate what these amounts might look like

    Hello I'm just speaking from personal experience, i am not an expert, but the few times I filed taxes online all the information from my federal got automatically transferred over to state i'm in California. Is it different elsewhere?
