    One of the main reason I use QBSE is for the tax estimator. If it is inaccurate, or making me pay in more than I need to, this is useless and there is no need for me to use the program. I don't see why there has been no action here.

    Several hundred votes and years worth of comments, pleas, and requests, but no fix? Comments go back to 2014 and 532 people have voted, representing over $3.3 million in revenue earned from this vocal subset of your customers. I agree with the other comments. This is a significant flaw that undercuts the validity of all calculations in the program.

    I'm considering canceling because I'm tired of seeing an incorrect tax bracket and overpaying on my quarterly taxes due to not calculating SEP or traditional contributions. It might not be part of schedule C but it certainly changes the quarterly payment and possibly the tax bracket.There absolutely should be a way to add these contributions to the tax profile and projections.

    This is so crazy that you can't add is as retirement savings! What a basic flaw in the system and should be remedied by now!

    How do you expect people to pay monthly for software that isn't complete! You are giving me an incorrect estimated tax by not allowing the ability to enter SEP-IRA contributions. Over pay the government due to your flawed software, don't think so. I will be canceling my subscription!

    Pitiful there is not an option to choose SEP or Solo 401k to categorize a payment. Come on people.

    Please add a SEP IRA feature the maxed out 55k contribution significantly alters my estimated taxes

    basic function, very disappointed in the self employed product - looks like it's time to find something else...

    Yikes, this thread / request goes back years! As a work around, I'm categorizing my SEP IRA contributions as 'Other Business Expenses'...any feedback on if this is an acceptable categorization would be appreciated.

    Another request to add this feature. Seems like a no brainer to add to a program that is designed for small businesses.

    Can we still not categorize 401K contributions in quickbooks self employed? I can't find the feature...

    The struggle... IRA contribution is not even a mention on your search filter. Please.
