Edit your Tax PDF documents with Acrobat in your browser

Whether you use the mobile app or your PC to upload your tax files, there’s an easy way to access and edit PDF documents. Acrobat is available as a Chrome extension, letting you work on your invoices directly in your browser

Not only can you use the records for tax purposes, but the browser extension also lets you sign forms. Now, you don’t need to worry about duplications or copied files when you have the original signed documents saved to the cloud.

Organize your Tax Documents in one place

So, you’ve taken photos of the tax documents with your phone, you’ve uploaded them from your PC, and you’ve used the extension to edit PDFs. Your Acrobat cloud space looks like chaos, but it doesn’t have to be that way. One of the tools that will help you with tax preparation is the ability to organize your files.

You can create folders and subfolders as you please. With the power to name folders and rearrange them, you’ll know exactly which PDF documents are where. Plus, you can still work on them anytime or make duplicates to place in different locations. The choice is yours.

Sharing and File Security

As a business or individual, there will come a time when you may need to share some of your financial documents. It may be to seek approval or receive a signature. While Acrobat lets you share PDFs with ease, you’ll want to make sure that only the responsible recipient receives the required files.

Fortunately, Acrobat lets you set a password for your tax documents, no matter which platform you use. It’s as easy as going into the file settings and selecting “Set Password.” Just remember to give the recipient the details; otherwise, they won’t be able to open the PDF.
