New free app and it’s asking for a quartly tax pmt I have never done this.I file all at the end of the yr. Can you tell me if this is only a suggestion or a mandatory pmt

I have always filed at the end of the year. Got the new free app and uploaded my receipts. It’s now telling me I need to submit a quarterly tax pmt. is this just a suggestion? I am not sure where this is coming from. 


Thanks for taking the time to post here in the Community, bjohnson4717

Let’s remove the “Submit Quarterly Tax Payment” prompt message.

The system advises you to pay quarterly taxes to avoid paying a lot if you pay them annually.

Since you’ve already filed all the tax forms at the end of the year, you can just disregard it. If you’d want to stop the prompt message, you can manually record the tax payment in the app. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Transactions tab at the bottom, then tap the Plus sign (+).
  2. Select Add expense manually.
  3. Set the date when you paid the tax payment.
  4. Enter the vendor and the amount.
  5. Under Business Category, select Estimated Taxes.
  6. Tap Save.

Please see the screenshots below to show you the second to the last steps.

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.
