See where your money’s going

Quicken Home & Business automatically categorizes your personal and home business expenses, so you can see exactly where you're spending. Check in anytime to see your total financial picture for the week, month or year.

Always know how your home-based business is doing

Quicken Home and Business gives you an overall snapshot of your profit/loss, what's coming in for the month, what's going out, and what's left in your accounts.

Maximizes deductions and simplifies your taxes3

Quicken Home and Business captures all your deductions, including mileage and expenses for specific jobs, or even household expenses that you can partially write off. The business tax deduction summary shows your tax deduction status throughout the year to help you avoid any April 15th surprises. At tax time, save time by creating Schedule C reports for your accountant. Or, export your data directly to TurboTax to prepare your taxes quickly and accurately.

It's shameful Intuit would release a product that should be a beta than a production release. I am a long term Quicken user from back in the DOS days and a former beta tester! Upgrading from Home and Business 2010 was a nightmare! After purchasing the download I installed it, and the program returned an error it couldn't apply updates it had downloaded. Next up was to acquire the patch and manually install. Needless to say it broke the windows installer and and completely destroyed the Norton Ghost installation. This issue couldn't be resolved so I have requested a refund.

The program is buggy, the budgeting interface is aweful, no customization of a color interface, and very busy and confusing. Quicken never was strong on the budgeting component, but this is the WORST I have ever seen.

The add reports to the toolbar customization, doesn't work! Saved programs from previous versions do not work. The savings Goals graphs are not formated correctly and the dollar amount is cut off on the right of the screen. Additionaly, unless you specify a target goal amount, the current amount residing in savings goals won't even display. The budget reports are inaccurate and more time than there worth. The default Personal Income and Personal Expense groups cannot be removed which is the source of the inaccuracy. Geesh, did anyone at Intuit have an accounting primer or have a clue how this is to work. Many of the same errors have been present in the last 3 Windows releases.

Enter the Ipad, Android mobile app. All fine and dandy but I for one could care less about putting my financial data in the cloud, on someone elses server. A mobile app is fine, if it could sync directly to the desktop. Call me old fashioned.

I purchase a lot of items from Amazon but have never taken the time to write a review. Almost all items that I order from Amazon work well and I take it for granted that this is the way things should be. It takes a real problematic product like Quicken 2013 to motivate me to take valuable time out of my day to write a review.

I have been using Quicken, TurboTax and Expensable since 1998 and have--UNTIL LAST WEEK--been very pleased and favorably impressed with their products. UNTIL LAST WEEK I have heartily recommended the Intuit product line to friends and business associates.


This 2013 product is simply not ready for prime time. It is buggy in my experience and refused to load one out of three accounts and one bank for web sharing. Various print functions on my menu system do not work. During the last week there have been no less than two different software updated released to try to fix the issues (remember this product is all of a couple weeks old). Even when it works, it does not web synch any accounts that are not essentially current assets/liabilities used for personal purposes--weak!

What we have here--in my experience--does not even qualify as reasonable Beta version software!

What management oversights at Intuit would have allowed them to release such junk is just beyond me. Are there no quality control folks testing this product? Is the senior management so out-of-touch with the developers that they could not have foreseen that this product was not ready for prime time?

Was it not foreseeable that software of this ilk would likely wind up in the hands or "early-adopter" customers of long standing with Intuit software?

Platform for Display: PC Disc Verified Purchase
I admit it, I got excited for the new version and upgraded. Nearly all the marketing features hyped above are not ready for prime time. Budgeting is a big fail. I'm going to revert to an excel spreadsheet and manually transfer the values. The numbers are off and there is an odd way of handling categories and future transactions.

Mobile sync crashes around 50% of the time and takes roughly 5 minutes to complete, while the software is locked and unusable. I hit sync and walk away. Using the iOS interface took some getting used to, and I may use it "on the fly" but it's not as nimble as the Pocket Quicken app in the days of Palm (yes, I'm that old and have been using Quicken that long!)

I could go on, but the other reviews hit the high points. I came from 2011 and wish that I could go back, but I've put too much new info in the data file, so I'm stuck.

If I could do it all over again, I'd wait to upgrade until users report all the kinks are worked out (if ever). Just head over to the forums and see what people are posting. I wish I did before I purchased. As of today (10/8/12) I have taken a step backward from usage. Thank god for Excel to fill in the holes while other people that purchased this too early "beta test" for Intuit.

EDIT 11/15/12: I just downloaded the seventh (R7) update and it completely corrupted my data. Mind you, I had to add a "balancer" transaction to a few of my accounts with the upgrade to 2013. Amounts were off, but I couldn't figure out where or why.

With R7, I had to restore from a backup (thank God I backup). If I could downgrade this review to zero stars I would.
