QB thinks that income is only what is posted in an income account, same for expenses in expense accounts.  So first check to insure that anything posted to those accounts qualify.

 

A bank statement is a snapshot of the account as of the statement ending date, a P&L is for the whole business for the date range noted on the statement.  SO one month for the statement and this year (usually) for the income statement.

@jennyvng I might add that your bank transactions are merely a record of money movement in and out of the bank and the bank is not keeping a record of or even interested in whether those money movements are income or expense.  If the bank lept track then you would not need QuickBooks then would you?
