My sister passed away April 2020 and I soon discovered that not only did I have to prepare my family taxes but also my sister’s. My sister’s attorney’s recommended using a tax person who lived quite a distance away from where I live. I had the choice of putting all the tax documents together in a neat order and driving for hours to deliver the documents to the tax person or scan the documents and use an Internet drop box that the tax person offered. I chose to scan the documents. I looked around in my home and found that I had three devices that claim to scan documents. My dual purpose printer and document scanning machines produced pretty awful scanned images. I had a very old CanoScan 8400F which was first made in the middle of 2004. My unit was not that old but pretty close. When I connected that scanner up to my Macintosh computer, it would not function. I did an Internet search and tried out VueScan by visiting this web site: https://www.hamrick.com/
They allow you to try the VueScan software out before you pay them any money. My tests worked so well that I purchased the software. For me, the software is fantastic. It is so simple to scan any document. And, by the way, the CanoScan 8400F is a very impressive scanner. I have scanned well over one hundred documents using this setup and no problems.
CanoScan 8400F =. Highly recommend.
VueScan Software =. Highly recommend.
