Who?

Karen Maanum is a self-employed farmer from Graceville, Minnesota. Established in 1998, the Maanum farm is an entirely family affair. With the help of her husband Tom and two sons, Charlie and Sam, Karen oversees corn, soybean and beef production. Karen also takes part in managing needs of her family farm.

The Problem

Every year Karen is faced with the important task of filling out IRS forms for her business and customers. Normally, Karen would complete her IRS documents using a typewriter. Usually this means she’d spend countless hours tirelessly writing and shuffling through stacks of invoices. Operations on the farm keep Karen busy, to complete extensive IRS forms.

This made keeping up with filing deadlines and getting completed forms to her clients a big struggle. “The ability to get the forms to my customers before a deadline was a problem”, said Karen. She knew there had to be a better way to manage her financial paperwork.

Convience

Convenience

Filling tax forms with a typewriter is one way of handling the task, but it’s definitely not the most convenient. While filling forms may be the first step of the filing process, for a business owner, keeping records of all documentation is of high importance, too. Scanning and making copies is one solution. However, this requires special equipment and additional time to get the job done.

PDFfiller helps reduce the amount of time spent on handling and filling documents. “All the information is now saved electronically”, notes Karen. To have forms filled out and automatically saved in your account is the most convenient and fastest way of handling all business-related documentation.

PDFfiller is also available on any internet-connected device and provides business owners with access to their forms anytime, anywhere.
