Hello there, @ashlaureenphoto.
I’m here to make sure the transactions show as purchases for the year 2018.
If they are downloaded from the bank, you can exclude the transactions to stop QuickBooks from including them to show on your tax calculations for 2019. Here’s how:
For web browser:
1. Open the transaction from the Transaction page.
2. Check Exclude on.
3. Select Save.
If through the mobile app:
1. Tap the transaction.
2. Toggle Exclude on.
For more information, take a look at this article: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1764053.
After that, you can manually create the transactions. To do that, follow the steps below:
1. Go to the Transactions page.
2. Click the Add Transaction button (beneath the Connect Account button).
3. Enter the details of the transaction. Make sure the date will fall in 2018.
4. Select a category.
5. Click Save.
Once done, the goods bought will now count as 2018 purchases.
That should do it. Feel free to reach out to me, if you have additional questions working on the program. I’ll be here to help. Wishing you the best!
