I completed my taxes a couple weeks ago—it took several days of almost nonstop sorting through paperwork, emails & online accounts. I actually thought it would take longer—which likely means I’ve missed some receipts & deductions. My disorganization costs money all the time!
I am so excited about my recent discovery—Shoeboxed is going to change everything this year! With this service, you send receipts, they scan & extrapolate the data to store & organize in a secure online account. Receipts get categorized so you can retrieve the information you need, when you need it. They even provide an email address to forward online receipts.
With 4 membership levels—including a FREE DIY version—you can choose a program that works for your family or business. I’m going with the Lite membership. It provides 50 scans per month & an email address for unlimited online forwards. If I go over, I can always scan & upload them myself, since that part is free anyway. The $10/month fee will fit nicely into our budget, and I’m pretty sure I’ll earn it all back next year—both in time saved & few missed opportunities.
