How do I track my self employment income and expenses separately from my husband's? And how do I track rental income and expenses separate from self employment?


Thank you for posting here in the Community, sextocala.

Let me share some information about tracking your business income and ex

QuickBooks Self-Employed is only designed to track your business-related transactions from self-employment.

A QBSE account is equivalent to one self-employed business/job. If you want to track your husband's self-employed business, each will need a separate QBSE account. Each job/business requires you to generate a 1040-ES form and Schedule C categories.

This will also effectively help you determine your estimated taxes for each self-employment business and maximize your tax deductions.

For more information on how we can help your business, please check our self-help articles here:

That should get you going. If you have follow-up questions about how QBSE works, let me know by leaving a comment below. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a great week.

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.
