I'd only ever heard questionable things about QuickBooks (must have been the legacy software?) but I started using QuickBooks Self-Employed in January and it's been a lifesaver. There are a few things that took a little bit of figuring out, but overall it was super quick & easy to set up, it tracks payments via PayPal and bank deposits, and it lets you categorize all of the expenses as you make them and make rules so that certain expenses/payments are auto-categorized. It took maybe 1-2 hours to set up initially, now it takes maybe 5-10 minutes of maintenance a week to categorize transactions, and I spent maybe five minutes filing and paying my estimated quarterly taxes for Q1 2017.
