Review your tax profile in QuickBooks Self-Employed

SOLVEDby QuickBooks16Updated 1 year ago

Learn how to review and update your tax profile in QuickBooks.

As a taxpayer, your tax bracket is based on your self-employed income and any other income. This includes income from working for another employer (what's on your W-2 form).

QuickBooks Self-Employed only tracks your income and expenses from your self-employed work. Since it needs your tax bracket info to calculate your federal estimated quarterly tax payments, you need to fill out a tax profile. This gives QuickBooks your complete tax info so your estimates are accurate.

Fill out your tax profile

When you sign up for QuickBooks Self-Employed, we ask you a few questions. We ask about your filing status, dependents, annual income from your employer (what's on your W-2 form), and more.

This sets up your tax profile. You should update your tax profile once a year, or whenever you have a big life change.
