I had received two invoices.
Both were created on the same date.
Both of them were created on February 21st 2021.
Both of them are for the exact same amount: $510
Here are their IDs if Upwork stuff wants to check them out:
Invoice T361643294 was sent by the freelancer I worked with, who actually delivered the service.
Invoice T361643366 was sent by Upwork. I assume it refers to that same payment. I didn't pay $510 on that day to any other freelancers.
For tax purposes, I need to be declaring every invoice I receive, as a business expense.
But in this case, it appears I paid $510 (once), but I have actually received two invoices for this.
Can you help me understand how this works?
