started working freelance mid-way through the year and had full time job until mid-May. How do I add that information into Quickbooks so it shows this?

Full time position took out taxes until mid-May. How do I add this information to quick books so it can accurately display how much my quarterly taxes are?


Good day, cambullrun.

I'm happy to share how we can get around this so you'd be able to record employment and self-employment transactions in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

To do so, you can enter employment income in the Tax profile page under "Your annual W2 income" field. 

Here's how:
  1. Click on the gear icon.
  2. Under Taxes, click on Tax Profile.
  3. Enter employment income under "Your annual W2 income" field.
After which, you can then track freelance income and expense transactions from May to date on the transactions page.

Stay in touch if you need more help, I'll be here to assist.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
