So I clean airbnb properties and then take laundry to laundromat at 5 per load, I don't receive a receipt for that.. Will I need one or do I just keep track of it?

These loads of laundry cost me 5 per load some days I have 4 loads,  that's 20 out of my 80, how do I deduct this with no receipt?? 


Hi there, elvismaxine!

You'll need to keep track of your receipts for business expense reporting in IRS. I'm here to share a few insights and help you from there.

First off, recording a receipt is a proof for your business expense. Thus said, here's an article you can read to learn more about tracking your receipts: Keep Track of Receipts.

In addition, you have to record your daily deductions. Here's how:

  1. Go to Transactions.
  2. Select Add transaction.
  3. Enter the necessary information for your expense.
  4. Click Save.

From there you can attach the receipt as a proof of your expense. Also, here's an article you can read to learn more about adding a receipt to your transactions:

As always you can leave a comment below or start a new thread if you have any other concerns. I'll be keeping an eye for your response.

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.
