QuickBooks Support: Choose a QuickBooks Solution Provider!

Every QuickBooks user has experienced a situation where support is required to identify a solution for a technical issue or have a question answered. When this happens, the initial courses of action that typically come to QuickBooks users’ minds are 1) requesting support in-product, or 2) calling 1-800-4INTUIT (1-800-446-8848). And, let’s face it, Intuit Technical Support is more than adequate to meet the needs of users who are experiencing technical difficulties or need questions answered. However, when users’ requirements are more complex and necessitate help from highly skilled professionals with industry accounting experience, where do users go for support?

When your QuickBooks needs are too complex for Intuit to take on, such as requesting a custom-built report, conducting an optimization analyses of critical workflows, or inquiring about QuickBooks training, you may feel like there is nowhere to turn. There is much ambiguity around what your best next steps might be, which doesn’t help the situation. Well, we’re here to tell you that there are a few different options available for these users, and we highly recommend one of those options: Contact an official Intuit QuickBooks Solution Provider (QSP).

In this article, the few options you have available to you will be analyzed and the pros and cons of each option will be outlined, followed by an explanation of our recommendation. It’s important to know that there are solutions out there, and with the right resources: if you can dream it, you can achieve it!

Form 1099 Information – Avoid an IRS Tax Audit!

Hello world, and welcome to tax preparation season! Form 1099 variations, Balance Sheets that won’t balance, and unpaid client bills, oh my! With so many unchecked boxes remaining on your year-end tax preparation list(s), and so little time to check them off, accounting frenzy is afoot. Unsurprisingly, daily tasks, project work to meet or beat upcoming deadlines, and more 2022-year planning tend to be the priorities at this time. If accountants are not Superwomen and Supermen, leveraging their superpowers to churn out incredible accounting work, then how can they manage to get all of these things done in so little time? And, more importantly, with their noses to the grindstone, will the quality and accuracy of their work suffer?

We all know that accountants are busy people in busy professions, and during busy times of the year “busy” is more of an understatement. As a company dedicated to QuickBooks training and performing QuickBooks services for our many happy clients, with a team of Allstar, certified ProAdvisor consultants with strong accounting backgrounds, we know and understand what “busy” truly means for accountants. And we definitely know how “busy” can affect work quality and accuracy. The last thing any business wants are penalties imposed by the IRS for any mistakes or oversights! So it’s important to prepare and execute year-end taxes correctly.

Diving a little deeper into the weeds of year-end taxes, a lot of the technical questions we receive have to do with Form 1099. Form 1099 work can become quite tricky, and a lot of accountants can struggle with choosing the correct Form 1099 variant to file. 1099s are a complex component of the tax preparation and filing process, with 20 Form 1099 variants, and it is essential to report everything correctly to avoid an IRS Tax Audit. Correct reporting will also help to mitigate potential IRS Tax Audits of your employees, which can cause great stress and negatively affect work performance.
