Question
I’m a photographer & send my photos to an editor then pay them through PayPal. Would I have to manually categorize those transactions to see them as a write off in the app?
Answer

Great question! The Keeper Tax app gives you access to a team of bookkeepers who are able to keep track of details like that. If you specify what the PayPal transactions are for, they can automatically categorize them going forward.
