All our tax returns were submitted by the deadline, so thanks everybody for your cooperation. We are feeling a bit groggy today!
One thing that worked really well this year is our technology. There were no jobs that we struggled with. OCR plus the blink comparator can now gobble up bank statements, while handwritten records can be typed in quickly by the column. After that, it’s all-electronic processing.
What we will do each February is to look on Amazon for the OCR pen scanner with the best reviews. If it’s new to us, then we will buy one and try it after reading the reviews. We would use it for processing printed matter such as credit card statements where there is no running total to serve as a check. Since we don’t see all that many credit card statements, the pressure on us to find a good OCR pen is not that great, but we will still look for one as an annual exercise.
