How Long to Keep Important Papers
It’s mid-February so that means tax time is just right around the corner. Yikes! Are you ready to prepare your taxes? By now you should have received all of the important documents you need to file your tax return.
This is also a great time to go through your household files and get them in order. Purging and re-organizing your files will keep you on track when it comes to preparing your taxes.
Do you ever wonder, though, how long you should keep important papers?
I consulted the USA.gov website and found a handy chart that gives guidelines to follow when trying to decide what to keep and what to throw out. I’ve taken their information and created a printable form you can download for future reference.
I hope you find this helpful!
