5/5 - (1 vote)

The Neat Company Today is April 15th, the end of another hectic tax season.  I finished my taxes last month, but have to admit that it took an entire weekend to get all of my receipts, documents and other information organized and totaled up.  Swimming in a sea of paperwork is absolutely no fun at all and it's so easy to make a mistake once it comes to itemizing the numerous deductions most of us take on our taxes.

Every year, I vow to be more organized so that next year's taxes won't be such a chore, but I've never really found a great way to do so.  That is, until I discovered the brand new document scanning system from The Neat Company.  Keep reading to learn more about the one tool that will simplify your tax preparation once and for all!

I reviewed the NeatReceipts Portable Scanner from The Neat Company, which retails for $179.95 FREE SHIPPING.
