Tags are an extension of categories and meant to expand on the meta-data included in a transaction. You can add multiple tags to a transaction.

Tags can be useful to group expenses together, possibly in another context than your categories. For examples, tags might include:

  • too-expensive
  • work-expense

Or maybe something else entirely. This is up to you.


You can add a Mapbox API key to your .env file which allows you to give tags a location.

Special tags

When you import data into Firefly III, a special tag will be created for each transaction. It is called Import with key 'xxxx' where the key is a custom code every time.
