Organizing Your Tax Paperwork with Smead Income Tax Organizer
Income Tax Organizer by Smead
Paperwork is a topic that seems to be on everyone’s mind. We get so much paper and then don’t know what to do with it. It piles up and gets even more out of control in January when tax season comes around.
One of the biggest questions that I hear around tax time is: Where is all of my tax information? It is usually scattered throughout several drawers and possibly even several rooms. Charity receipts are a good example of deductions that can easily be lost throughout the year.
We are all well aware that from mid-December through January 31, we will receive a piece of mail, just about daily, that says “Important Tax Return Documents Enclosed”. What I love about this organizer is that you can begin using it right now to gather for your 2012 tax information. It is compact enough that it will easily fit into your filing cabinet or can even be left and available wherever you open your mail or bring in your receipts. I think it is a perfect file to keep with all of your original paperwork when you file your taxes each year. No matter what or how you organize your tax paperwork, remember to be consistent throughout the year and develop the habit of using your system for 12 months.
Smead Income Tax Organizer gives you everything you need to keep all of your paperwork neat and organized for your tax preparer. It gives you pre-printed labels and labels that you can personalize to easily identify all of your tax categories and even gives you a checklist to make sure that you don’t forget anything.
The most important thing to remember about If you do your own taxes this year, and have any questions, make sure that you go to the website www.irs.gov to find your answer and Don’t Agonize – Organize!
