We all know how painful it can get at the end of the year when we need to file our taxes.
Step 1 : You need to get W2 from your employer.
Step 2 : You need to look at all your investments and get the required 1099 forms from various institutions and keep them safely until you are ready to file your return.
Step 3 : You also need to report any foreign income under the FBAR (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) and need to get bank statements and tax withholdings from your overseas banks.
Added to this is the complexity of tracking the number of days spent outside your home country to determine resident status for tax filing. You can now store all this information securely in Zoomlee under finance category and send all this information to your CPA with just one click through an email. And yes, tax tracking days has been made simpler with Zoomlee’s automatic GPS based tracking when you travel. Enjoy your travel and let Zoomlee take care of filing your taxes for 2015!
Foreign travel for me is always exhausting and with complex immigration rules, it’s stressful as well. I’ve had trouble managing my travel documents, particularly passport and visa pages with their expiry dates. During family travel, my mind always used to be preoccupied with such issues, instead of enjoying the trip. I was looking for a simple but effective tool that would help me and my family. That’s when I came across Zoomlee. It’s a cool app. I can scan and store all my travel documents and they are accessible on-the-go anytime. My favorite feature is that I can access my documents even when there is no connectivity and that came in handy once in an airport when I needed them the most.
Downloading and setting it up in my iPhone was a breeze. One feature I like the most is that it allows me to have multiple pages of the same document and due to this document management is so easy. It gives me all the expiry alerts I need for me to take action and stay compliant.
Now, thanks to Zoomlee, I’m spending quality time with my family during travel, instead of worrying about travel documents.

Upload, TAG, and set alerts for documents in Excel, PDFs, Word, PowerPoint, Rich Text and more!
It wasn’t long ago that people had no other option than to scan their travel documents, send sensitive travel information to their email accounts, and finally store their passports, visas, trip itineraries, identification certificates, etc., in Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, OneDrive and other cloud storage alternatives.
There are endless problems with this system, but to address the most important one, none of them are securely built to protect your highly sensitive and private documents you need to travel internationally. Zoomlee was engineered to keep your personal identity safe while you travel. Passports, visas and other travel documents can be uploaded to Zoomlee as a PDF, Word Document, Excel, PowerPoint… almost any file format including:
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
Rich Text Format Directory (.rtfd.zip)
Zoomlee was created as a travel and compliance app that stores and protects your documents; however, there are so many unique features built into this single app specifically designed to make international travel, study, and living easy and safe. One of the newer features is the ability to access every document you have stored even when you are in an exotic location with no network connection.
Every document you upload to Zoomlee can be customized to include multiple fields specific to that document. Passports can have tracking numbers, issue dates, expiration dates. Visas can have control numbers and expiration dates. Pending documents can have hyperlinked fields for case numbers so you can check the status of work permits or green cards – you can link each case directly to the USCIS official site so you can quickly track the status of your application.
Any document that has an expiration date should be utilizing the Data Field feature. Zoomlee is set to remind you 1 month prior to the expiration date of critical documents like passports, driver’s licenses, visas, work permits, and travel insurance. Once you receive the first reminder that a document requires updates, you can then customize the alerts to come in 1 year, 6 months, 3 month, 1 week, or never before action is required.
Data Fields is one of the most unique features Zoomlee offers. No other travel app will track the expiration and case number of so many imperative documents. It is simple to input the information into the Data Fields, and in the long run, it saves you time and money when you aren’t running around at the last minute to renew your passport or paying a rush fee to get it ready before a trip.
Expat, a blog from The Wall Street Journal, recently published an article titled, “Expat to Expat Advice: Global Nomads Tell All.” In this article they compiled advice from expats who provided their own top tips and tricks for people heading overseas on expat adventures.
Tracking your case number doesn’t have to be complex. With Zoomlee you simply enter the USCIS case number or receipt number in the Work Permit documents screen and you can easily track the status of your case.
When you store the information in the app your case number automatically becomes a direct link to the Case Number Status on the USCIS official site.
Once you have entered this information, you can check your case status quickly and frequently for Work Permit approvals, extensions or approval of your Green Card.
