You are not required to keep any paper records as long as you retain an electronic copy of all documents (bank statements, canceled checks, journals, paid bills). These electronic records should be capable of producing paper copies of any and all items if requested. You should also keep copies of tax returns, again, electronic or paper is acceptable if paper copies can be produced from them.
