Cell Phone Photo Tutorial

We realize that not everyone has a scanner at their disposal and it is necessary to submit a cell phone photo of your document. Please review the following to ensure that your photo will be usable:

Please make sure your document is not folded.

Folded paper results in some text appearing out of focus once we see it on our computer monitors. This can result in incorrect or missing information in your tax return.

Please use your phone’s flash instead of relying on an outside light source

Uneven light and shadows can distort the text in your document and cause incorrect or missing information.

The Perfect Document

Please unfold your document as much as you can and use your camera’s flash to ensure we can read the information we need for your return.
