Float Through Tax Time

Float Through Tax Time


As the calendar turns to a new year, it signals the beginning of a critical period for financial management: tax season. With thoughtful planning and a methodical approach, the path to April 15th can be smooth and manageable. The key lies in establishing a system that not only organizes your documents but also aligns with tax preparation requirements. Here's how to float through your tax season: 

Efficient Document Collection

Embrace the habit of using a Colored Expanding File from the start of the year. This acts as a dedicated spot for all tax-related paperwork, ensuring nothing gets lost in the shuffle.

Regular Filing Cadence

Make it a point to file all tax documents weekly. This consistent action is crucial in building a complete and accessible record for tax filing.

Intuitive Sorting System

Organize your paperwork in a way that mirrors the structure of your tax return. Label each section of your expanding file to correspond with the different parts of the return, simplifying the process when it's time to file.

Document Retention Strategy

Adhering to a three-year retention period for your tax records is a standard practice due to IRS auditing policies. Opt for Smead's antimicrobial products to safeguard your documents during storage.
