Quicken misinterpreting transaction dates (Q Mac)

When I download transactions from my bank, they come with a posting date/time stamp with the correct date, a time of 120000, and a time zone offset of -5 hours. For example:


When Quicken adds this to the register, it does so with a date a day later, i.e., 2022-11-18.

Please fix this.


  • Hello @Kevin Dean,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Quicken Community with this issue, though I do apologize that you are experiencing this. 

    Before I can further assist you, I require some more information. Which financial institution are you experiencing this with? What is the connection method with said financial institution? You can see the connection method by navigating to Settings > Downloads > Connection Type. 

    I look forward to your response.

    Connection type is Web Connect right now, but it also occurred when I was using Quicken Connect. The problem exists in both the Windows and the Mac versions.

    I'm in Toronto, so the North American Eastern time zone.

    Is the time zone in your Mac OS correctly set at ET (UTC -5)?

    Yes, it is.

    This problem occurred in the Windows version as well. If I recall correctly, it started after Quicken launched the new and improved Web Connect process.

    Just for reference I tried this transaction in Quicken Windows (My time zone is Pacific, but I changed it to Eastern and it didn't make any difference):

    In reality I wouldn't really expect Quicken to even look at the time zone information the date, but even if they do look at it is the same day when the time is 12:00 no matter what time US/Canadian time zone you are in.

    Quicken is now making a liar out of me. Transactions I just downloaded with yesterday's date are being properly added with yesterday's date. Nothing has changed on my side, and I am 100% certain that the November 17th transaction I referenced in my earlier comment was being imported with the November 18th date.
