Chapter 3. Set Up Your Paycheck > Paycheck Setup (Mac)

Paycheck Setup (Mac)

To set up your paycheck so Quicken can use it, you’ll need your latest paycheck stub. You’ll enter your paycheck information as a scheduled transaction, which is just a future transaction that you set up in advance, and that Quicken remembers so you don’t have to enter all of the details each time. When the transaction comes due, Quicken either enters it automatically into your check register, or asks you if it’s okay to add.

If you have pre-tax deductions from your paycheck, such as a 401(k) or other retirement plan, you must create that account before you begin setting up your paycheck. The same goes for post-tax deductions, such as Employee Stock Purchase Plans. See Chapter 2 for more information on setting up accounts.
