How to search Mint.com For Transactions During Tax Time

Ok, this isn’t really coding…

but still a great way to gather your deductions for tax time prep and shit.

First off, search by URL:

https://wwws.mint.com/transaction.event?query=category:"13"&startDate=01/01/2013&endDate=01/01/2014&exclHidden=T

This says, search category 13 (which I think is internet related stuff) from 1/1/2013 to 1/1/2014. It will give you the full report.

Then if you want to exclude certain items in the category, type in the search field:

-category:Utilities

To exclude something like utilities. If you want to add a category:

category:Entertainment

Same thing with Tags:

-tag:taxable

To remove items on the page with a tag of “taxable”. Etc.

Cool right?
