If it's the type of receipt that I'm inclined to save, I just cut off the irrelevant parts and toss that.
Become Power of Attorney for someone, and you will be keeping ALL receipts; and booking them all into a spreadsheet; so that you may answer to the Executor of the Will when they audit you, as well as the Social Security Office when they audit you, as well as the IRS if they should audit you, and numerous other Agencies. Now imagine how many receipts you have handled, since you must purchase everything by either Credit Card and/or Debit Card or Check, and you cannot mix funds (yours with theirs). Yes, you may purchase items online as well. But either way, you are still going food shopping and doing things locally, and handling receipts more so than you would imagine. And, no, you may not just simply cut off irrelevant parts and throw it away. When examiner's see that, they begin to question other things then. You do not want to screw with these Agencies, I may tell you this much, when one becomes POA.
For a typical person, yeah, you can toss what you don't need or scan it into your computer; if you no longer need the original.
