Support for tax-filing
I am a retired journalist. My income is restricted to Social Security, rent from a granny apartment, and very occasional freelance writing work. I have no significant investstment income. All I need really is a way of categorizing transactions as tax-deductible or not, so that filing with the IRS is "one-step." The question therefore is: Does this product facilitate doing so? Or, like almost all other such programs, does it require going through hoops more appropriate for a multinational corporation than a private individual?

If you want to classify individual transactions (as opposed to entire categories of transactions), you could use the tag function for this. You could for example tag all those transactions with something like "deductible," and then use a report like the Transaction Filter to show only transactions with that tag in a specific date range.

Thank you for your reply, Ethan. I don’t yet own the program, but once I familiarize myself with it I’ll be able to put your advice to proper use.

I'm glad to be of help. If you haven't already, I encourage you to download our free trial version from http://infinitekind.com/downloads and experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test things like importing from other programs and connections with your bank. If you decide to purchase the program at a later date you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions.
In case you haven't found it yet, our full user guide can be downloaded from http://help.infinitekind.com/kb/user-guides
