in quick book self employed, my 2018 sheets are showing/ How do I star the new year with clean sheets for 2019?

And if you had started using the program in 2017 your 2017 "sheets" would be showing as well. There is no starting a year from scratch disregarding last year's business and the year before that , etc. Everything is date driven so any reports or upload to turbotax for taxes is restricted to activities relevant to the correct year. You can close a previous period so that you do not accidentally record this years data as last year but the only way to acheive what you think you want is to start a brand new subscription on January 1 of each year, still maintaining the old subscription until you no longer need the data - usually 3 years or more

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.
