If I need to run eth_getTransactionReceipt(txhash) on old transactions, will a fast node suffice or do I need to run a full node? I have heard conflicting answers and would prefer not to download a full sync if possible.

Fast synced node will work. Transaction receipts are part of blocks so as long as a block is downloaded you can get all receipts from it.
