Expense Tracking for the self-employed
I am constantly looking for ways to make your life easier and to save you taxes. Most self-employed people significantly overpay their taxes through lost or forgotten receipts, but with the 1tap receipts app, I will help you to not be one of them.

I am proud to announce I have partnered up with 1tap, the award-winning mobile expense tracking app designed exclusively for the self-employed. So instead of storing all your paper receipts all year, you will simply take a picture of the receipts using the 1tap app on your phone or iPad.

The 1tap app will do four things with the receipt, bill, invoice or any other expense item that you photograph:

  • The supplier, date and amount are automatically extracted.
  • Automatic categorization to one of eighteen IRS categories.
  • Automatic filling in super secure storage for the IRS mandated seven years.
  • I receive all this information in real time so that I can double check everything at year end.

Most exciting of all, the instructions to use the 1tap receipts app are in the name. One tap of the camera button and all four points are performed for you. All of this means I am more confident than ever in my ability to save you money on taxes for the 2018 tax year.

Best of all it is available to you FREE of charge, as part of your ongoing service with me.

All you need is an Apple iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone and the 1tap receipts app. Get the app here, so your 1tap account links with my account straight away. Make sure to enter code 6mqr in the “Share with Accountant” tab of the 1tap app.

Donation Tracking
An easy way to track your donations is using a free mobile app (from TurboTax) called It’s Deductible. You can track your donation on your computer or your mobile device and print a report at the end of the year that can be used to prepare your taxes.

Mileage Tracking
There are more and more apps available that can be used to track miles. One that I can recommend is MileIQ. Make sure to use this link if you decide to sign up for MileIQ because it will save you 20% on your annual subscription plan.
