QuickBooks financial accounting software makes tax time easier

QuickBooks is financial accounting software that helps small businesses track and record the financial information required by state and federal tax agencies. All US businesses must record and report revenues, profits, and expenses. At tax time, this financial data is used to calculate the taxes due to the government.

QuickBooks stores, organizes and reports on the financial data you need to complete your taxes. In a few clicks you can view and print income statements, balance sheets, inventory reports, and other important records needed to back up your tax returns.

Small businesses with employees are also required to report payroll data to state and federal tax agencies, and to pay payroll taxes based on a variety of payroll data. QuickBooks organizes and stores this important financial data so that you can accurately and easily complete the required tax forms during tax time.

Already using QuickBooks on your desktop?

If you are already using QuickBooks on your desktop, you may want to consider changing to QuickBooks Online. Moving to QuickBooks Online gives you some great benefits, but there are a few trade-offs as well.

With QuickBooks Online, you can manage your finances from any Mac or PC with Internet access2, and instantly share financial data with your accountant, partners, and business associates3. Your data is protected with daily automated backups and there's no software to install and no network to maintain. Best of all, automatic upgrades and customer support are included in the price of subscription.

QuickBooks Online offers three versions: Simple Start, Essentials, and Plus. If you are moving to QuickBooks Online from an existing QuickBooks product, we highly recommend the Plus version of QuickBooks Online.

You can easily transfer customers, vendors, and transactions from your QuickBooks file to Online Plus or Online Essentials - so you don't have to start from scratch. QuickBooks Online Simple Start is designed to be a simpler product for those new to the QuickBooks family. If you choose Online Simple Start, you'll need to start from scratch with your data. You cannot import data from an existing QuickBooks product into Online Simple Start.

Take advantage of our free 30-day trial and see if Online Plus is right for you. Once your trial is over, you pay just a low monthly fee. There are no long-term contracts and you can cancel at any time. If you do cancel, you can export your data back to QuickBooks software4.

If you have any questions about switching to Online Plus, give us a call at 800-286-6800. It's a direct line, and we're U.S.-based. We help QuickBooks customers with this decision every day.
