working in 2 different states?

My Company has been based in one state since we opened. But, now, we are also working in another state as well.

tax-wise, it's better for us to be based in state #2, but many of our clients require us to do work in state #1.

here's the question:

how do I (can I?) separate out jobs done in each state, but still maintain only one checking account and set of books? 

How would i split payroll for employees who are working on jobs in both states?

It's nice to have you here in the Community, @dianeh123.


I can share some insights about how you can track multi-state jobs in QuickBooks. 


Since you'll need to separate jobs done in each state, you may use the class tracking. This is also applicable if you want to split the payroll. This way, you can track the payroll taxes and wages per state. However, this feature is only available if you're using Intuit Full Service Payroll. You can check out this article for more information: Standalone class tracking setup and usage for Intuit Full Service Payroll.


If you aren't using this payroll service, I'd suggest reaching out to out Intuit Online Support so they can check if there's another way to track this. You can locate the product on this link and fill out the form to chat with an expert.


If you have other questions or concerns, please visit us again here. I'm glad to help however I can. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
