Split and Exclude Transactions

Multi-Split Functionality

The multiple split feature allows you to split transactions into more than two Schedule C-categories, designate a part of the transaction as personal, and set split rules for future transactions.

In addition, the Exclude button is set to exclude transactions from estimated taxes calculation. It is represented by a checkbox and accompanying text, excluding the transaction when checked and saved. For more details, see Exclude or delete transactions.

Note: Income transactions cannot be split to both Income and Spending, and vice versa.
