Hi there, tfalik.
Thank you for visiting again the QuickBooks Community. I'll be sharing steps to ensure you'll be able to achieve your goal.
Yes, a Budget to Actual Report can be created by Class that includes Annual Budget, Budget YTD, and Actual YTD. To do this, you'll need to turn on the Class feature first in the Account and settings.
Once done, you can now create or add a new class in QuickBooks Online. You may open this artilcle to see the steps on how to perform the process and to see further details: Create and manage classes in QuickBooks Online.
After that, you can then start creating a budget by Class and make sure to choose the right date range. Please follow the steps below.
For additional information, you can click this artilcle: Create and import budgets into QuickBooks Online.
After that, click the drop-down arrow under the Action column and choose Run Budgets vs Actuals report. Then, customize the report if needed to ensure you'll be able to see the data that you need.
Lastly, you may refer to this article to view a table list that contains various reports that are available for your version of QuickBooks Online: Reports included in your QuickBooks Online subscription.
Let me know if you have other questions about the budget report. I'll respond and provide you with the information you need from us. Take care always.
Thanks so much for getting back to me so promptly. I already have Classes set up, my monthly budget is in the system, and I am familiar with the Standard Budget to Actual Report. The problem I am having is, if I do the report in the middle of the fiscal year, how can I also see the annual budget for that Class in the same report.
Thank you for coming back to the Community, tfalik.
I appreciate you for taking the initial steps in trying to run a Budget vs. Actuals report showing the information mentioned above. Let me point you in the right direction about your concern.
I recognize the importance of being able to build a report that will let you view the Annual Budget, Budget YTD, and Actual YTD set to the middle of the fiscal year. This will give you a clearer view of the performance of each class and their budgets.
We're always looking for ways to make the online program a more versatile tool for customers. I recommend you let our Product Development Team know that adding more customization options on the Budget reports is beneficial to your business. This will help them identify the features our customers need the most and consider in future updates.

Drop a comment below if you have additional concerns building your Budget report. I’m more than happy to assist further. Have a great rest of the day.
Can I go back and subdivide a budget by class AFTER I have made the budget. Don't see that option except when you initial make a new budget.
Can I go back and add a subdivide by class AFTER I have created a budget in QBO. I only see this option when you create a new budget. Thanks.
Hello there, @SteveWas. Thanks for joining the Community space today.
Currently, the option to add subdivide by class after creating a budget is unavailable in QuickBooks Online. You'll have to create a new budget grid and add the class from there.
While this option is unavailable, I recommend sending your feedback straight to our dedicated team to help make changes to QuickBooks Online's capability. You can follow the steps shared by my colleague Rasa-LilaM on how to send feedback or click this link: How do I submit feedback?
I’ve added an articles where you can get more information on creating budgets and customizing reports in QuickBooks:
