How can I add Qualified Business Income Deduction status to my QBSE profile to calculate estimated tax payments? Options?

I need to add my Qualified Business Income Deduction to accurately calculate quarterly estimated tax payments, QBSE helps calculate estimated taxes but without this deduction my estimated payments are higher than actual payments owed. Please advise. 


Hi Hernando.Montero,

Thanks for posting here in the Community.

The Qualified Business Income Deduction only applies for income tax purposes and not for self-employment. Adding them in QuickBooks Self-Employed is unavailable. You can add the deduction when filing through TurboTax.

Here's an article for more information about TurboTax: 2018 Tax Reform Changes For Self-Employed Businesses.

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.
