change deposit rules

I have a direct deposit from Social Security.  The benefit is $1677 and Medicare ($136) is subtracted giving the net deposit of $1541.  Supposedly the medical is deductible, so I would like to make a rule.  I cannot.  Or can I?

All I am given to work with is the net deposit.  I cannot add actual values.  Is there a way?


Thank you for posting,  wlt_atoxford.

Let me help you with creating rules in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Are you trying to create a rule where it will automatically split an amount? If so, at this time there's no feature in the app that can do this. What we currently have is creating rules to speed up reviewing and categorizing transactions.

Here’s use rules to speed up reviewing and categorizing transactions for more information.

I can see the importance of having this feature. What I can do is I'll be sending this as feedback to the Product Development Team to be considered in the next round of discussion.

That's it. If I may be of any further assistance in setting up your rules, let me know. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great rest of the 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.
