Well, Tax Day has finally arrived. April 15, the day that always seems so far away, the one where we pull out all our procrastination tricks and try to avoid the pain that is giving our money away to the government and the frustration that is going through all that paperwork. Ah yes, a great day.
Of course, one of the most annoying things about taxes for today is organizing receipts. Since they are needed for donations and deductions, you’ve got to have a copy of them all. Unfortunately, many people lose them or store them in some primitive organizational system so they can never find them this time of year. I was talking with a Receipt Mail-In user the other day on the phone and she admitted that she has thousands of receipts crammed in one of her moving boxes from when she bought a new house. Imagine trying to find a receipt in there for your taxes. Actually, scratch that. Don’t think about that. Oh God… Oh… no.
Oh, sorry. Sometimes unorganized receipts really get to me. Anyway, there is obviously a really easy solution to getting your receipts organized. At Shoeboxed, you will never have to go through the pain of organizing all your receipts in a frenzy in the last few weeks of tax season. The best way to organize receipts, after all, is to stay on top of the clutter as it comes in.
Scanning every receipt you have is a powerful way to stay organized and save money. Having receipts scanned on your computer allows you to access them anytime and easily use them for taxes and other important record-keeping activities. And if scanning isn’t really your “thing”, then send them on over to us. We’ll scan your receipts for you with our Receipt Mail-In program.
I hope you’ve been a Shoeboxed user for a while, because today will be stress-free, but if you’re just finding out about us, we wish you the best of luck on this worst of national holidays.
