Can Mint track tax related transactions - both personal and rental-property related?

I have used Quicken for many years to tracking our household spending, and also (and especially) our rental properties.  I rely on using both "categories" and "tags" to do this, and to get good year-end reports for filing my taxes. (As well as monitoring our personal spending).  The information for Mint under "How it works" is beyond minimal, so I have no way of knowing what it does or does not do.  If the sale of Quicken results in Quicken disappearing, is Mint an alternative?  (or do I have to brush up on my Excel....)?


Answer

Hi jtroth_1,

Mint features categories and tags, so if that is what you're looking to get out of Mint, you'll be able to find it when you go to the Transactions page once you've made an account and connected your bank to it. You can change categories and add tags as needed to transactions by clicking on the transaction in question and editing the details, and you can also edit multiple transactions at once.

Let us know if you need any other assistance.

Regards,
Mint Mike

People come to Mint 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.
