Why should you store receipts?

It’s super rare, but… should the IRS audit you, you’ll need to have easy access to any and all receipts associated with your Starship account. Why? To prove that any purchase made using your account was a qualified medical expense. Storing receipts digitally is also just… easier. And who doesn’t want that?

Sweet! Can I throw out my original paper receipts?

Well… the IRS advises keeping paper receipts for up to 7 years. And we like to listen to the IRS.

But let’s be real, it’s easy to lose track of physical receipts! So it’s always good to have a backup. We definitely recommend using your Starship app as your  backup digital record of receipts! And as long as you keep your Starship account, your digital receipts in our app will be stored forever.
