@@ -258,12 +258,27 @@ Some examples of appropriate uses of the `Statement:` tag are:
 
* written organizational policies about the expense.
 

	
 
* just about anything that is clearly not an [invoice](#invoice-tag) nor a
 
  [receipt](#receipt-tag), but definitely is valid backup documentation for
 
  the transaction.
 

	
 
#### TaxReporting Tag
 

	
 
The `TaxReporting` tag is an optional tag for `Assets` accounts that debit to
 
the account.
 

	
 
When provided, the `TaxReporting` accompanies a `TaxImplication` information
 
tag.  The TaxReporting refers to a document that verifies the choice for the
 
`TaxImplication` tag.  For example, for individual contractors in the USA, a
 
`TaxImplication` of `1099` would be well served by a `TaxImplication` that
 
links to a [W-9](https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf) for the individual
 
being paid.  For a individual foreign contractor, the `TaxReporting` might
 
link to a
 
[W8-BEN](https://www.irs.gov/uac/form-w-8ben-certificate-of-foreign-status-of-beneficial-owner-for-united-states-tax-withholding)
 
for the payee.
 

	
 
### Information Tags
 

	
 
In contrast to documentation tags, information tags can more traditionally be
 
considered pure "meta-data" for a ledger entry.
