I flipped a house in 2018. Quickbooks says I owe over 8k taxes on it. When I import that into Turbo tax with my regular income i says i owe much much less.

I made 27k profit from a house flip in 2018. My tax burden according to quickbooks is over 8k. When I shoot that over to turbotax and add the 100k my wife and I made as teachers in 2018 It calculates that I owe nothing? 


Hi there jimmurray41,

QuickBooks Self-Employed calculates your taxes based on schedule C and any business income you enter for calculation purposes.

So the profit you have from the house flip as your self-employed business should be set as your business income which increases the taxes and not decreases. Then the salary from you and your wife’s teaching job should be categorized as Personal income.

I suggest you take a look with your transactions and check if it was categorized accordingly. For help about this, you can get in touch with our Customer Care Team. They have the tools to directly pull-up your account and check to see what’s causing this to happen.

To get in touch with a specialist, here’s how:

  1. Log in to your QBSE account.
  2. Click the Assistant button.
  3. Type in “Talk to a human”
  4. Choose your desired method Chat with an agent or Get email support.

I'm available here every time you need further help. Wishing you all the best!

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.
