LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Feb. 16, 2022 – While this year’s tax filing deadline is a few days later on April 18, 2022, the IRS is urging taxpayers to file earlier to avoid processing delays due to budget cuts, unprocessed 2021 returns and pandemic challenges. From Child Tax Credits to economic impact payments and stimulus checks, taxpayers and preparers have a whole new set of considerations and tax changes to sort through. As taxpayers tackle this year’s tax matters, Epson’s RapidReceipt® document scanners and EcoTank® Pro lineup of cartridge-free Supertank printers help simplify the process of digitizing, organizing, and sharing documents and records to meet tax filing demands.

“Tax season can be very stressful for both small businesses and individuals alike,” said Mike Isgrig, vice president, consumer sales, Epson America. “Moreover, this year brings a new range of components to filing due to the pandemic and we see Epson’s business solutions serving as great assets for taxpayers and preparers. With the ability to quickly scan, print and digitally manage documents, Epson’s full-featured scanning and printing solutions help streamline the process of managing important tax documents to help taxpayers file earlier this year.”   

Beyond avoiding expected delays and receiving refunds sooner, there are many benefits to managing and filing taxes before the April 18 deadline, including decreasing vulnerability to identify theft, minimizing errors that can lead to an audit, as well as extra time to estimate capital gains or make last-minute charitable donations. As you get ready to file early, Epson provides an array of business solutions that can help simplify tax prep steps, including: 

  • Digitizing Stacks of Receipts, Invoices and Documents: Say goodbye to manually entering data with Epson’s RapidReceipt lineup of receipt and document scanners, the only solution in the market specifically designed for organizing and managing receipts and invoices. The RapidReceipt RR-600W wireless desktop scanner includes Epson ScanSmart® Accounting Edition software, which converts stacks of unorganized receipts, invoices, and business/ID cards into actionable digital data. The RR-600W accurately extracts and organizes data from the scanned documents and seamlessly integrates into QuickBooks®, TurboTax®, Quicken, Excel®, and more – all with zero subscription fees. In addition, scan directly to cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive™ and OneDrive.
  • Printing, Copying and Archiving Multiple Copies of Important Documentation: Small businesses and workgroups that require heavy-duty performance to handle high-volume demands this tax season can depend on Epson’s EcoTank Pro lineup of cartridge-free Supertank printers. EcoTank Pro printers offer business savings up to 80 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles vs. standard capacity color laser toner cartridges1 – about 2 cents per color ISO page versus 14 cents with cartridges.1 With Epson PrecisionCore Heat-Free TechnologyTM, EcoTank Pro all-in-one printers, such as the EcoTank Pro ET-5880, deliver fast, consistent, heavy-duty performance and print-shop-quality output.

1  Actual savings and costs will vary considerably based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Savings and cost per ISO page are based on the cost of replacement ink bottles and the cost of enough standard-capacity color laser toner cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the ink bottles using the manufacturers' online prices and yields for the best-selling similarly featured color laser printers, available at retail, priced at $999 or less (USD) with speeds of 40 ppm or less per industry-available data as of July 2019. Savings of up to $600 (USD) and cost per ISO page of about $0.09 (USD) for XL-capacity color laser toner cartridges based on the same methodology.
