TaxCaddy Tips & Support

Review these suggestions to make the most out of your TaxCaddy tool:

  • Drag and drop any documents you’ve received electronically directly to your TaxCaddy account. This eliminates the need to print any of these documents.
  • Upload each document only once. If the same document applies to another requested item, simply mark that item as “Already Provided” to avoid uploading duplicates.
  • Whenever possible, set up Smart Links for all of your government tax documents to ensure we receive your tax documents as soon as they’re available.
  • Use TaxCaddy’s mobile app photo-scan feature to photograph your documents, instead of your smartphone’s camera application. TaxCaddy converts photos to PDF images that capture high-quality uploads to your account. Keep in mind, it’s best to upload any PDF documents directly, especially brokerage 1099s, by dragging and dropping the PDF into your account.
  • Invite your spouse to join your account prior to the tax preparation process.
  • You can select “Reply With Amount” for any document requested. This feature is helpful for charitable contributions and medical expenses. Keep in mind, you should retain any written acknowledgment from the charity for contributions of $250 or more for your records. For purposes of preparing your tax return, we do not need such acknowledgment letters for our files; uploading a summary of all contributions is sufficient.
