If I enter my state estimated tax payments as "State Tax" instead of "Estimated Tax Payment" will that make my suggested estimated federal tax payment correct?

So I've discovered that QB Self-Employed does not support state estimated tax payments.  How do I reconcile this to keep my tax payments accurate?  I tried changing the state payments I have already made to "State Tax" but I have a feeling that this is not correct.  This really should be an important thing to include in the software!


Hi, c_reed1.

I'm here to share with you information about the state estimated taxes.

QuickBooks Self-Employed focused on the Federal Estimated Taxes and self-employment Taxes. Your estimated taxes are calculated from the business-related transactions that you have entered in the system. 

The state estimated taxes are not yet supported because state taxes vary from each state government. What I can do is to send this as feedback to Product Development Team. We strive to ensure that we're meeting the needs of our customers in part by having out team review all the feedback that they receive. 

You may check this link for more information about the state estimated taxes: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1592144.

Please let me know if there's anything that I can help with the account. Have a good day.

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.
