How do I send my QuickBooks Self-Employed tax information to TurboTax?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online511Updated January 20, 2022

You can send your tax information from QuickBooks Self-Employed to TurboTax Self-Employed or TurboTax Live Self-Employed from a web browser or the QuickBooks Self-Employed Mobile app (available on both iOS and Android)

Your accounts must be connected for the import to work. This means you log into QuickBooks Self-Employed and either TurboTax Self-Employed or TurboTax Live Self-Employed with the same sign in credentials.

Before exporting, make sure your information in QuickBooks is final. You can only send your information over once. If the export fails, contact QuickBooks Self-Employed.

  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Self-Employed
  2. Start here. Don’t enter any information in TurboTax before you import
  3. Select Tax Checklist, near the top of your home page
  4. Complete the steps and answer the questions under TAX CHECKLIST, if you haven't already
  5. Select Review and send
  6. After reviewing the information, select Send to TurboTax
  7. Select Send to TurboTax

You may need to enter some information manually into TurboTax, such as:

  • Vehicle loan interest
  • Other vehicle expenses
  • Home office expenses
  • Interest paid
  • Self-employment health insurance premiums

You should also keep a few other things in mind:

  • Make sure you are accessing TurboTax with the same User ID and password that you use for your QuickBooks Self-Employed account. This will make sure you get any bundles you’ve paid for
  • Meal expenses are imported as 50% deductible
  • QuickBooks estimated tax payments generally cover federal income taxes, not self-employment taxes
