Does anyone know off the top of their head if the IRS would be OK with electronic receipts as proof of reimbursement for shops?
I can keep hard copies of my receipts for six months, a year (depending on the MSC), but if I have an electronic copy, it seems to be a waste of space to keep all of those paper receipts beyond that time.
Heck, the IRS even accepts the credit card statement as a receipt for, say, gas, hotels, meals, etc. I just download all of my credit card staements and categorize each transaction in Quicken, then port the results right into the appropriate tax for line in TurboTax. It really helps that I have two credit cards that I use exclusively for shopping expenses and reimburseable purchases. That way, if I eat at xyz burger for a shop it goes on one card; if I eat there on my own dime, it goes on the personal credit card.
