Well, we've made it through another grueling tax season. Were you prepared ahead of time or was it a panicking last minute situation?
Many people don't start thinking about filing taxes until the calendar flips over to April, which means they forget to keep track of important documents like receipts.
With so many tech tools available these days there's really no reason to live like that anymore. It's much better to plan ahead and keep documents organized so when Tax Day comes around next year you'll be ahead of the game. This app will help you do just that.
I'm talking about the Shoeboxed Receipt Tracker.
Shoeboxed is a fast, easy way to digitize and archive receipts in a single, secure location. It turns receipts into extracted, human-verified data that is categorized, organized, fully searchable and available anytime, anywhere.
It's super easy to use. Just snap a picture and the app will extract the vendor, total amount, payment method, date and also categorize the receipts into the most common tax categories. You're able to instantly create expense reports (with original receipt images) that you can send right from your phone.
The mobile app is linked to your own personal account at Shoeboxed.com, which you can access from any computer, allowing you to do even more with your receipts. Shoeboxed integrates with nearly every popular accounting solution to make bookkeeping simple.
Here are some of the app's features:
- Transform receipt images into accurate, human-verified data
- Instantly archive receipts on the go
- Access a searchable, sortable archive of your categorized, IRS-accepted receipts
- Generate and email expense reports in seconds
- Export expenses to QuickBooks, Wave Accounting, Excel, Outright, Xero and dozens of other tools
The app is free to download for both iOS and Android. However, you will need to pay for a monthly subscription plan to use all of its functions.
The Shoeboxed app offers "Starter" and "Lite" subscription plans for purchase that will renew every 30 days after the original subscription start date. The Starter plan is $4.99 per 30 days for 25 document scans. The Lite plan is $9.99 per 30 days for 50 document scans.
