paid my estimated taxes with a cashiers check from savings account. Added transaction manually but QB only applied partial payment. How do I correct this?


Hi boatshed2!

I'm happy to provide some helpful information regarding your concern her in the QuickBooks Community forum.

I'd like to confirm, have you checked on your Quarterly taxes page as to how much taxes you owe in every quarter?  If yes, have you also checked how much payment has been applied in each quarter?  If not, please do so as this can be the reason why QuickBooks Self-Employed system applied for partial payment.

If it happens that you owe taxes from the previous quarter, the system will auto designate tax payments to close out any balance left.
You can check out this article for more information about estimated taxes.

Please let me know if you have further questions, I'll be around to help. Wishing you continued success.

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.
