Quicken 2017 Release Date News & Rumors

Quicken 2017 Release Date Expectations
Updated Friday October 14th, 2016: It’s official, Quicken 2017 is now released! And it’s here a few days earlier than expected. From what we can see at first glance, there aren’t really any compelling enhancements in any of the versions. You can see the full details at

In terms of where to buy, Amazon will probably be your best option at the moment to get the best deal. They have all of the download versions so you’ll be able to buy and install today.

Did you just buy a copy Quicken 2017? How does it compare to the version you just came from? Let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page!

Updated October 13th, 2016: Amazon just posted Quicken Mac 2017 for sale – You’ll be able to buy and download your copy now.  Quicken Deluxe 2017, Premier 2017Home & Business 2017 and Rental Property Manager 2017 all have a October 16th release date listed (that’s this Sunday!).  So just a few more days of waiting, but you can already check out the new features. We couldn’t find any of the other versions up there yet but expect the other pages will go up soon.

Staples also just started selling all of the new 2017 versions of Quicken… looks like you add any of the boxed version to your cart and checkout (no download option). Unfortunately, their pages don’t go into detail about the changes for 2017. still has all of the 2016 versions still on sale.

Updated September 17th, 2016: It looks like Quicken 2017 will be released a little bit sooner that we though. BJ’s and Costco both now have the product pages up for Quicken Deluxe 2017, but listed as “out of stock” (we couldn’t find any of the other versions posted). That means we can expect to see Quicken released any day now, likely before the end of the month! No details yet on any of the new features.

Of course we’re watching the latest leaks and will be posting any updates here as we get them in to us.


Updated July 13th, 2016: It’s hard to believe that we’re here in mid-July with summer already at the half-way mark. How time flies quickly. But this also marks the point for us to once again start tracking the release dates for our favorite software programs coming this Fall. That includes the expected Quicken 2017 versions of Basic, Deluxe, Premier, Mac, and Home & Business.

Traditionally, for the two decades or more when Quicken was owned by Intuit, the release dates were so predictable that we were able to pinpoint the exact release day and time 6+ months in advance. But ever since the Quicken brand and product line was sold off last year and turned into a separate entity of it’s own, no longer part of the Intuit family (owned now by H.I.G. Capital), things are still a little bit unpredictable. But with that being said, we still give the likelihood of the 2017 product line to be released in late October (it used to be the third week of September).

Quicken 2017 versions are expected to be released by the end of October, 2016.- Expected Quicken 2017 Release Date

But hopefully with the management/company change as well as the longer wait, maybe, finally, we will start seeing some of the longtime issues with the software finally being addressed.

What we want to see improved in Quicken 2017

For the last few year’s we’ve been putting our list together with some of our most wanted changes (here’s our 2016, 2015, and 2014 lists). Here’s what tops our list for 2017:

  • Improved program stability – All you need to do is just take a look at the hundreds of negative reviews on Amazon to know that Quicken isn’t the easiest program to install and initially get working. That’s especially true when you have an older version of the program currently on your PC. Others report frequent crashes, issues removing duplicate transactions when using the mobile app, and the inability to add or errors in adding certain banking accounts.
  • Removal of Quicken ID & Online Verification – If you use the 2016 version then you already know that to be able to install the software you will need to create a Quicken ID and provide your name, address, phone number and email address. That in itself is more info than most of us what to provide, especially with todays online security concerns. But what’s even worse is that in order to download any transactions from your financial institution or bank, you must log in with that ID each and every time.
  • Better customer support – Not only are reported wait times to get a hold of a CSR agent upwards of 45 minutes, but the quality of support is very low (the teams are located in India and apparently not trained very well). There is also no technical support available on weekends when many of us tend to use Quicken. And worst of all, product support is only available for free for those running the current/newest version (year) of the software so if you have a version from last year or older then you’ll need to pay if you want any assistance from them.
  • Stop replacing previous versions – If you’re upgrading from an older version of Quicken to the newest one, the old version is replaced with the new one and all your files are converted to the new format. That maybe not a big deal when everything works as it should but when things don’t and you’re having difficulties using the new version, it becomes impossible to go back.

    Add Unicode support so Quicken can allow other language to be used without changing OS Language.

    Quicken just released an update to its IOS App with titles now referencing support for Quicken 2017 but no update to its website. I would expect end of week, anyone else?

  3. October 11, 2016

    Anton K

    Ability to enter amounts bigger than 99,999,999 is a must
    This is a painful feature of current and previous quicken versions.

  4. October 10, 2016

    David Norris

    For tax year 2016, Quicken Home and Business 2016 for windows 10, In Planning > Tax Center > Show Tax Planner > Tax Planner Summary: Tax Computation: Deductions: for married filing jointly both over age 65, the standard deduction amount should be 15,100, not 15,000. This has been reported and never fixed. See the IRS circular of tax changes for 2016 for verification.

  5. October 8, 2016


    More support for buying and selling bonds. There is no “bond sold” option in the transaction options..

  6. October 7, 2016

    Tom McCarthy

    Please please please allow integration with remote storage!; Allow the data to be left on OneDrive/DropBox, etc, so you can use it in more that one place like work and home. There is not one online solution that comes close to Quicken, Personal Capitol and Mint included.

  7. October 5, 2016


    Quicken is not at Dead-End as per feature wise. So Do Not DIE

    Most Important feature could be added to next version:

    I use Quicken for records of All In and Out transactions. It’s important able to search and see the scanned image of the checks I deposited, and most importantly are the scanned images of those checks that I written Pay to and has been cashed.

    Specially, when Quicken sync with the bank (checking account), it sync and receives all transactions and ALSO Shall retrieve the image scanned / photo or screen captured of each check that written ‘Pay’. The scanned image of the check has been offered from Most of accessible online BANK. When I logged in to my Bank Of America checking account, I can click on each transaction and click to view the both sides of scanned image of the check that I written Pay To, unfortunately, Quicken does not offer this feature.

    Would it be cool and convenient that user can open Quicken and see images of the check/s that you have written back few years ago with just few clicks?

    If Intuit discontinues Quicken and if other company does offer such feature I would buy right a way.

    Iris M

    Make the interface consistent and fix the bugs! Tax planner and budget interfaces suck. Budgeting is buggy as hell and tax planner is really not user friendly. Last upgrades have not really brought anything new that works well. Linking to bill pay vendors is also buggy and I had to unlink many providers. Continuous updates, ditch the annual release cycle. And give us a fresh, modern interface that works for all modules.

  9. October 4, 2016


    End of Year file in Quicken MAC 2017. File get big quickly when attaching documents and receipts. Its hard to manage a one year 2.0GB file in the cloud.

  10. October 3, 2016


    I wished that quickens included the following, (1) an addition field in the transaction line for sales tax. (2) also include additional tabs on the account bar. (A) one tab for different types of various insurance policies that would keep tab of the payments and what their value are,(B) then another tab for warranties, and rebates, to keep track of these when they have expired than finally have it interphase with Nolan Will Maker so that the will becomes a dynamic and not a static last will and testament. then have it interphase with turbo tax so you can see how your tax liability is coming along during the calendar tax year.

  11. September 30, 2016


    MSFT Money was a great program that closed shop and sent us to this beast of a product. I despise MSFT more for that than for Windows itself.

    Every release has been more bloated, more fragile, more user hostile, and slower for everything, all while being installed on ever more capable platforms. It needs to be simple, quick, and get the basics right, including not routinely corrupting certain financial download links. Once a file or account gets a small corruption there is more often than not no way to fix it. That itself can be a deal breaker when it happens.

  12. September 29, 2016


    Quiken needs to step up to the latest Display Technology and have the software adapt to 4K Resolutions. Today with 2016, the resolution is terrible with 4K. Everything in the program is truncated.

    Get the H out of India……You can’t support any product with a written script by people who can’t understand or speak english.
    Salaries paid in rice cannot be tolerated or supported in the U.S. so why create this horrible support system in India

  14. September 16, 2016

    Jack Thorgeirson

    My wish is for a support center in North America. The support location in India seems to be run by tech’s with a grade school education.
    Trying to converse with them is an exercise in extreme frustration and each time I ended up by just telling the operator to forget it and hung up.
    I hate having to sign in every time I want to check for an update online and they make it so it’s virtually impossible to complain to them or if you do manage to get someone they basically couldn’t care less about your complaint.
    I’ve considered switching from Home & Business (2016) to Simply Accounting but not being familiar with that program have hesitated to make the move.

  15. September 14, 2016


    I used quicken more than 20 years.

    Sad to say, quicken is not catching up with progress.

    its strategy has been making it difficult for the customers in every new version. It is a cardinal sin, like asking us to sign in quicken ID all the time, changing the quicken file format for each new quicken version, which does not serve any good purposes.

    It is sad to see it goes away like dinosaurs. hope it can survive eventually.

  16. September 14, 2016


    I would like to see the option of tracking sales tax with each transaction on the US version to help with filing taxes vs using the standard sales tax deduction. The old MSFT Money use to track sales tax. This would need to be a field on the mobile app.

      I do track sales tax in quicken using tags. Most of my transactions include the category split. One for the merchandise total and one which has the sales tax tag. If you want to see tax totals for the year, filter your reports by itemized tags in the report center

  17. September 13, 2016


    * Pull-down options for the IRS ‘quarters’ necessary for calculations of tax liability in the report period options. Ie. the quarters ending 3/31, 5/31, 8/31 and 12/31. Being able to tabulate itemized categories into those four quarters for a given year would be magical. Manually entering custom dates becomes laborious after a while.

  18. September 13, 2016


    * Support for historical exchange rates. At the moment foreign accounts and transactions appear using the last-known exchange rate which messes up the historical net worth and transaction basis tracking. I would much prefer the exchange rates to be tracked in the same way as stock prices, even if i need to periodically update them manually.

    * Support for a user-defined numeric field in the transaction entries. I would like to record the gallons of gas I buy and then be able to sum the totals over periods of time. At the moment I need to export to excel and perform a laborious data manipulation.

  19. September 9, 2016


    In my own experience, Quicken Premier 2016 was total crap. Extremely buggy, and my data file still does not work correctly. Hopefully Quicken 2017 will actually be thoroughly tested and reliable!

    When we dounload transaction from financial institutation and two transaction done at the same day and same store present , only one will be inscribed in the register ..

    Neil Strickman

    online support and community are good
    there is no need to sign in with your intuit or quicken ID ever.
    Its just software not fidelity?

  23. September 1, 2016


    Along with Quicken ID log in, ditch that stupid required upgrade policy. Why are we forced to upgrade every three years when there are no the new versions offer no new useful features?0 0

  24. August 31, 2016


    Fix problems with font sizes in account register. Better support for investment accounts like Vanguard and Fidelity.

  25. August 31, 2016

    Richard Norwood

    1. Make it possible to access your file from any computer via the cloud
    2.Go to a subscription system, like Adobe and many others
    3 Bring support back to the US

  26. August 31, 2016


    The main reason I’ve stayed with Quicken is its ability to store investments in other currencies. They almost got it right but despite years of complaints from many sources they refuse to track foreign exchange rates over time. They only store the current exchange rate and multiply an account by that single rate. That means that any performance information is WRONG. All that would be required is to store the exchange rate like a stock value over time and multiply it like the price of the stock.

    Building that capability would make the software much more marketable in offshore markets like Europe or Asia.

    Quicken Mac 2007 is a favorite because it’s full-featured (the budget tool could use some serious work) and just works. Right now, since an update of my OS might hose 2007, I can’t update my OS. Very few, if any, bugs in the 2007 version. 2016 is some of the buggiest software I’ve ever used. I don’t think the programmers of 2016 have a stitch of bookkeeping experience. Working from the cloud would be nice, but I’d like to choose that option, not have it imposed on me.

    Entering data into 2007 is darned near wonderful. Not so much with 2016. As an experienced bookkeeper (I also use Quickbooks), I think I can say that. I’ve tried 2015, 2016, iBank, and MoneyDance. Ugh to all of them. Back to Quicken 2007.

    Address issue of placeholders – enable users to easily delete them if so desired and give users option of accepting a placeholder. Current versions of Quicken automatically add placeholders when performing some updates. Not a good thing in my opinion.

  29. August 26, 2016

    Michael Mauceli

    Quicken and Mint need to merge into one software. By merging the two maybe they can evolved into a decent accounting and online program that someone wants to use.

  30. August 26, 2016


    I am writing same comments from past couple of years and hope that one day Quicken will implement these or some other software will come along with everything in Quicken plus these features.

    Based on my observations from past few years, Quicken DESKTOP RELEASES (I am not talking of the mobile apps which are very much welcome but only for the desktop versions) has not been very aggressive in coming up with new features in new versions and it is mostly a cosmetic exercise for the desktop version at least. I feel that there are real “genuine value addition” features that Quicken can add to the desktop version to make it extremely more powerful than what it already is. To be honest, there are some new features like Debt Reduction Planner and for Budget and related reports, but that is about it. In a way, these are very useful features. But if you think from a different perspective, people who use Quicken “religiously” are according to my personal opinion, much less likely to go overboard with their finances or take too much of debt. At the same time, there will be at least a sizable amount of people who use Quicken to manage and grow their investments by using Quicken investment features and reports. There might be many others whose use is limited to day to day balancing of their accounts. Hence, it is in the best interest of everyone that all categories of features of Quicken are improved over time and not only selected categories.

    The features that I am missing most in Quicken Premier (or all versions till 2016 Premier) are related with Investments.

    – No support for few widely used asset classes in its naming convention. e.g. Most stocks fall under Small Cap, Large Cap and “Mid Cap”. Quicken does not have provision for “Mid Cap” until now. In fact, Quicken mentions in its Help File that mid cap is not supported and also gives reason for doing so.

    – No support for asset classes like Commodities, Currencies etc. (at least not that I am aware of).

    Investment Transactions Features
    – Setting High and Low alerts for each stock which could be triggered to remind the investor that it might be time to sell/buy the specific stock. This is similar to the other alerts which remind users when account balances go over or under a specified limit.

    – Using Tags for specific transactions and allowing saved reports, portfolio views etc. to use the tag as a filtering criteria (e.g. I can use this to tag transactions that I have done using lumpsum payments vis-a-vis automatic investments done every month or for tagging transactions to indicate that they have been done during a huge market crash vis-a-vis at other times. When I take report to find returns for these tagged transactions, I will be able to find returns for lumpsum transactions, transactions during huge stock market crash etc. or even exclude them from reports so that I get a better view of returns in normal times etc.)
    It should be possible to assign multiple tags if required. This is very much similar to the normal bank account register tags usage.

    International Stock Prices Support
    – People who reside in USA also have investments in other countries, particularly for people who have come from other countries. e.g. A lot of people are from outside USA. They do manage both their USA investments and non USA investments using Quicken. However, no support to download stock, mutual fund and other stock prices or asset classes and other fundamental data for stocks/mutual funds traded in any other country is available yet.

    – No support for transactions carried out on Margin for derivative products like futures and options. (i.e. I want to find the absolute gain/loss, ROI%, ARR etc. for the actual amount that I have used in margin transactions (margin amount) rather than the total contract value.

    On reports and portfolio views front,

    Saved Reports
    In readily available or customizable (saved) reports and graphs,

    – I can use average annualized return for ALL dates but I do not have option to use Absolute Gain/Loss or ROI% as a field for display.

    – Fields cannot be sorted. e.g. I cannot sort a report by ARR field and have to go through entire report to find the highest and lowest ARR return.

    – I cannot filter out or include “Closed lots” like the Portfolio view. It would be nice to have a facility which provides a mechanism to include all stocks in the report where current holding is 0. (Closed lots). It should also be possible to include all stocks in the report where current holding is > 0 (Currently held stocks). e.g. When I use Reports/Investing/Capital Gains report and Customize this report, then go to Securities tab, it has “Select Securities” on left hand side and it shows on right hand side a box which says “Matching , Security contains”. This is used for finding all securities with a specific string or characters in it(e.g. Apple will be selected in report but not Microsoft when I type A here. Similarly, if I type M here, Microsoft will be selected but not Apple). Although this is useful, the more useful filtering criteria could be to select Security contains to specify holdings for the selected securities in the Accounts selected in the Accounts Tab. This should ideally allow to enter (= 0, Greater Then 0, Less Then 0, Not Equal to 0 etc.). This can then be used to report all securities that I am currently holding (> 0), all securities that I have already sold out completely (= 0 or closed lots in other words). In today’s day and age when markets are pretty volatile, it is very important to know what your returns are on your current holdings (as you can probably do something about it) versus returns for securities that are completely sold out (not much chance to take any action here as these securities are no longer available in the portfolio). Currently, I do this manually by selecting / deselecting securities that I hold / have sold out everytime I buy or sell securities and want to see this report.

    – Last but not the least, the report layout on screen should be changed to make it more appealing and conforming to Windows standards. (Sorting, Changing the column positions by dragging and dropping them etc.)

    Investment (Portfolio views),
    – I can use absolute gain/loss and ROI but I cannot use average annualized return for ALL dates. I can use ARR only for a specific number of years.

    – It should be possible by user to define a specific asset allocation across different security types as also different asset classes and generate an AUTOMATIC alert if the asset allocation deviates from the user defined one and also have a tolerance limit which is again user definable) so that the alert gets generated only if the asset allocation falls outside the user-defined range (including tolerance limits). A limited way of doing this is available in ideal portfolio view.

    – Number of custom views should be increased.

    What-If Analysis
    As of now, Quicken does not have many features for what-if analysis for Investment.

    e.g. What will be my investment performance (ARR%, ROI%, Return or anything that can be measured using Saved Reports or Portfolio Views in Quicken etc.) be if

    – If all the stocks/mutual funds etc. that I hold increase / decrease by n%. (I can use this to see how my returns will be affected to check if each stock increases by 5%, 10%, 20% or -5%, -10%,-20% etc.

    – Instead of a fixed value of n% that is applied for all stocks or from a stock specific application, if a percentage can be assigned to stocks of a specific sector (e.g. all Automobile stocks may increase/decrease by n% whereas all Bank stocks increase/decrease by m%). Currently, I do this by copying the existing Quicken file with a different name and changing the security prices in the new file.

    For this, there also has to be a way of downloading / assigning a specific sector for each stock or sector-mix for each mutual fund. (Currently, I use Investment Goal to assign a sector to Security and this is limited to 15 only.)

    – Finally a mobile version of Quicken which has all investment reports available.

    Wishing HIG Capital all the very best for future. Also wishing Quicken desktop a special all the very best for future versions and hoping to see all of above and even more features in coming versions.

  31. August 25, 2016


    The font size used by the register, drop down boxes, headings, etc. in Quicken is “normal” or “large font”. It would be helpful to expand the option to more than 2 values. At times I wish I had a small font to get more entries on the screen, at other times a large one so make easy to read. The large option is good, but for me just too big. Thank you,

    Track frequent flyer accounts

  33. August 22, 2016


    I trade 10 to 20 different option positions each week. Either Quicken or TDAmeritrade makes minor adjustments to the symbol resulting in a difficult time in matching up the downloaded transactions and my current positions. Sometimes the word “weekly” is added to the symbol or the month and day format changes so that I have to scroll through a long list to try and see if the symbol is a new position or try and match it with my existing positions.
    I can’t hide symbols in the security March list even the options may be several years old and have expired.

    It would help to have a Sample Data File, to practice with, that could be kept on the computer as a second user. Some banks will prefer Quicken for their customers rather than FinanceWorks that uses the Cloud.

    Get rid of that absolutely horrible “support” coming from India.
    Not only do they read from a script but they speak with marbles in their mouths so you can’t understand them anyway.
    Pay the support team more than a bag of rice and lets see if improvement can be made.
    Bring support back to where Quicken originated….USA

    I would like to see those responsible for Quicken 2017 to take the time and read previous edition comments on Amazon. Reading them closely it would appear the programmers have been terribly unqualified to write programs. The comments on Amazon are about the worst I’ve seen for any piece of software.
