How do I make categories inactive

How can I make a category in Profit gauges inactive so that it will not appear in the business report?

for example I have to put my carrier reimbursements on the income section in order for my total net in my settlements to match the report. But I also want to block that category from my business report so that I can see what is my true revenue per mile without the reimbursements. I tried to make the category inactive but it did not do anything.

thanks!

Thanks Ronald for your answer.

I guess I'm kind of screwed as far as the business report is concerned.

Adding an income category for reimbursements works fine as far as the Tax report. But when it comes to the business report I'm going to be showing more revenue than I'm actually getting due to the reimbursements which means that my revenue, expenses and net percentage of revenue /per mile are going to be wrong.

Wish there was a way to block that category off, kind of like what we do with the retain earnings for expenses. That way I could toggle back and forth depending on what report I need, if I need my tax report I leave it on and if I want my business report I take it off.

Hopefully I can find a way to do this.

If I understand correctly your reimbursements are being treated as reimbursements for tax purposes but being added in so your net reflects what is being sent to your account but not being added as revenue on your 1099. If that is the case you should still enter it in as reimbursements then with another calculator just add the reimbursements to confirm that your settlements match. I know it sounds screwed up but what's screwed up is the why your carriers settlements are set up.

On the other hand if reimbursements added to your revenue for your 1099 amount then reimbursements should be entered as revenue and treated as such in Profitgauges because if so that is the way the IRS is going to treat them. If this is the case you could put reimbursements in as a subcategory of revenue and just keep that in mind when reviewing your business report. But you can't hide it from your business report.

Well if your reimbursements are included on your 1099 amount then they aren't true reimbursements it is actually revenue. sounds like your carrier is passing the tax burden of these expenses on to you. they get to deduct the the receipts you turn in and get a second deduction for the expenses their classifying as revenue. While you have more revenue to pay tax on with no deductions for those expenses.

Yeah carriers do what they do, but how can I fix it in Profit gauges? Or do I just have to live with it?

by

you could print off your business report then manually subtract your "reimbursement line of revenue" from your bottom line of revenue and bottom line of the report, the only thing this won't help is your % of revenue numbers.

But the point I've been trying to get across is that It's revenue and the Business Report is already showing you "YOUR TRUE AND ACCURATE NUMBERS".

Yes they are accurate numbers but since I'm adding reimbursements they are not accurate as the reimbursement is not part of my true total revenue per mile.

But anyways thanks for the help, I'm sure Ill find a way around it.
