Mortgage payoff overpayment / refund check

How do you categorize an overpayment check that was received after a loan was refinanced and paid off?

Once I actually looked at it, I just put it under “Mortgage Payment” and since its positive the system called it out as a refund.

@johnmanner Sounds good. Glad you were able to figure this out. Assuming this was excess principal, you may want to consider categorizing the refund under “Mortgages & Loans > Mortgage Principal” to be more precise.

Good point, made that change. Thanks Devin
