Are Shoeboxed receipt scans accepted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)?
If you need copies of your receipts for the IRS or CRA we have some good news! Both agencies accept digital (scanned) receipts for taxes and audits. For information on the ATO, click here.
A lot of people don't know that the IRS has been accepting digital receipts (that meet certain requirements) since 1997. We make sure we meet those requirements over here at Shoeboxed by ensuring that your receipts are legible and that they link back to other purchasing references, like credit card spending. Make sure that your receipts are submitted to the IRS within the accepted time frame though!
Receipts that have been scanned and processed into your Shoeboxed account meet Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) guidelines for digital receipt record keeping as well. You can find the CRA’s requirements for receipts here.
