Rental Income Reporting Question

Hello - for those of you that use a PM, do you report (back date) the rental income to reflect the month it was earned or do you use the date you actually received the income from your PM? In my case, I receive the income from my PM on the following month. While I can backdate it to the previous month (e.g. last day), so that my dashboards are nice and clean of ins/outs and performance for a particular month is in line, I am concerned this may screw up my year end tax reporting.

Thanks for any advice!
