Does it matter whether I use bank deposits or gross receipts as sales on my federal tax return?

Bank deposits and gross receipts are taken from the same the same basic information - assuming you deposit all money receive from sales.

Whichever one you choose to report to the IRS, the main thing to be concerned with is that the N.M. Taxation & Revenue Dept. compares sales reported to the IRS with total reported gross receipts (not to be confused with taxable gross receipts). Note: If bank deposits are reported to the IRS, that amount will be greater than total gross receipts because deposits include gross receipts tax. The Taxation & Revenue Dept. takes this discrepancy into account when they determine whether the it indicates that the business has not reported all of their gross receipts.
