I purchased a scanner last year but my bookkeeper said she did not think it would be useful to document purchases, travel, gas, meals etc for my very small business. Scanner sat in box until May 1 when I got my first IRS audit notice. Long and short is that I am still under audit and trying to make sense of the accumulation the receipts that I've been pouring through. Now I have 2 years of receipts which have gotten intermingled. I have tried to scan some but don't know if its too late to use the scanner and evernote organize the mess. Big question is will IRS accept scanned images for audit?
Earlier today, I wrote a blog post about how I recently used Evernote to prepare for tax season. Because I'd spent the bulk of 2011 going paperless, it was very easy to gather and identify all of the paperwork this year. I cut my normal prep time from several hours down to 15 minutes. I thought I'd start a thread here for others who might be using Evernote in this manner. What tips and tricks have you found that make tax preparation easier?
I use Evernote to collect receipts, but I notoriously forget some. I'd like to see if anyone has used any automation tools to make this easier? I'd also love to know any other good tips. I'm a part-time real estate investor, self employed, work from a home office, on the board of a non-profit, in a domestic partnership with joint ownership of many properties......and many other things to complicate my tax life. Ideas appreciated! Thanks!
