Go to the Account details section. Enter Other Income or the income account you created under the ACCOUNT column. Enter the cash back amount. Click Save and close.
Likewise, if a business receives cash-back rewards or gift cards, then it should reduce the business deduction of the items purchased with the rewards credit card. If the rewards are earned by an employee of the business through the use of a corporate credit card, then the IRS would consider the value of the cash or gift cards to be taxable income to the employee.
