First year business tax filing


I'm a new small business owner [Feb '19 start date] and can't find definite answers to tax filing related questions. I'd appreciate some clarifications from experienced business owners.

Sole proprietor, selling services and products, based in CA, married filing jointly, spouse employed, using QB Pro for desktop Mac.

  1. I understand that I have to pay quarterly estimated taxes.
    Since filing status is MFJ, do I need to file just 1040-ES for the business side?
  2. It appears that any TT desktop application includes schedule C and SE. Also, I understand that any TT application can import data from QB desktop company file. Which TT version would you recommend for filing quarterly?

Thanks in advance for any advice related to my questions.
