I use a high tech file cabinet to save paper copies of the returns. But I do have Adobe that gives me the capability to tweak pdf copies when I need to.
Maybe an overkill but we keep at least 3 (and sometimes 4) copies of each return:
- Preparer Copy: As produced by software with all pages;
- Preparer Copy (if applicable): Same as #1 but with offline manipulation;
- Client Copy: Based on #1 (or #2, if manipulated);
- Filing Copy: Same as #3 but without worksheets.
We use a PDF editor to make changes to the software-produced copy, where necessary.
Still an AllStar
