New user here! How do I tell QB I already did my taxes for 2018? How do I tell QB to forget my 2018 transactions since I went from DBA to LLC?


Glad to have you here, Kirby.

QuickBooks Self-Employed will count your income and expenses based on a quarterly and annual basis. The transactions from 2018 will not impact the calculation for the taxes for this year. 

Though, you can record the 2018 tax payments QuickBooks for QuickBooks to recognize that taxes were already paid.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Transaction page.
  2. On the right side above the list transactions, select Add Transaction (under Connect Account).
  3. Enter all other details.
  4. Select Taxes and Licenses, then select Estimated Taxes.
  5. Click Save.

You can also go through the process of tax payment in QBSE and select the voucher option. This will allow you to record the payment without sending it again to the IRS.

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.
