    Receipts

    If you itemise on your taxes or own a business, you need to keep receipts. This can take time and space but there are some methods that work.

    What is your strategy?

    I keep a folder in my file cabinet for saving them. I don't own a business, we just itemize for our individual taxes. It works for us.

    Re: Receipts

    I itemise for our business.  I have a file folder where all the receipts go but just in a big pile.  Where I keep track of things is on the computer.  I use Quick Books and completely rely on that for tax purposes.  So it is very important that I input the information into their proper categories correctly the first time.  :)
