Russ, make sure you make copies of the posts of any check whose image you may need in the future: tax payments, mortgage payments, checks for home improvements that will add to the basis of your home, etc., etc. No telling how long the cridit union keeps those images.

Our local tax board does not yet accept photocopies of checks as proof of payment. Only the original cancelled check will do. That's why many local residents line up at the town clerk's tax window to pay their taxes in person and obtain a receipt; their banks must not return cancelled checks.
