How do you track reimbursed business expenses in qb self-employed, because they are included in income, and need to be fully deducted - is there an expense "type"?


The categories in QBSE are following with the IRS Schedule C categories for self-employed individuals, mina34.

Currently, there's no specific category in QBSE for reimbursement. However, for record purposes, you can tag it as Personal

You can exclude the refund transaction when categorizing this business-related expenses since technically you're not receiving or spending anything from the account.

Check this article for more information about the categories QBSE. Also, here’s categorizing & editing transactions in the mobile app article for your reference.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
