Each year, QuickBooks compiles an abundance payroll, tax, benefits and finance management articles in the Year-End Center. This perennial knowledge database is relevant for both business owners and self-employed workers who are closing their books and starting fresh in the New Year.
Beyond common year-end questions, Year-End Center artcles also explore topics QuickBooks users may be less familiar with, but are nonetheless critical for proper accounting.
Have you ever wondered about the difference between W-2 and W-3 forms?
Are you unsure of how to account for bonus paychecks you gave out during the holidays? Do you want to offer fringe benefits such as health savings accounts (HSA) to your employees next year? If you answered yes, then the Year-End Center is a great resource for you!

1099s/W-2s/Taxable Deductions are related (tasks that need to be done in preparation for tax season)
1099 and w-2 are end of year activities
Taxable deductions are business expenses which occur as an ongoing thing during the year. The exception being posting accumulated depreciation to fixed assets (unless the company has elected to post that depreciation monthly)
April? Why put the drop dead date in the title? and not all companies, with or without payroll, file income tax NLT 4/15. Fiscal year is the key for a company filing.
w-2 and 1099 affect personal income tax filings and that is why they have to be sent out NLT Jan 31, not april
I try to project how much I'll make as a self-employed person for the upcoming year. I err on the low side, and from that number I'm better able to make sounds business decisions, and stay on top of my accounting!
