There are several situations where setting a custom Income amount in the Spending Plan may be useful, such as a month where you're expecting extra income that isn't accounted for with a Recurring Series, having a fixed income, or maybe even adding your leftovers from last month to the current month. It may also be easier to track your income using a custom amount if it fluctuates month-to-month. No matter the reason, Quicken Simplifi has got you covered!
