Find a spot for your tax-related papers

26 January 2017

This is the time of the year in the U.S. where the mail carrier starts bringing in tax-related documents, like W-2 and 1099 forms. To avoid that frantic feeling at tax time when you can’t easily put your hands on these important documents, I encourage you to do yourself a favor today.

Establish a spot in a safe place (like a desk) for your 2016 tax documents. It can be an envelope, a letter tray, or a file. Whatever works for you. As soon as it arrives, immediately put that tax document in your designated spot and don’t put any non-tax-related mail there.

When it comes time to figure out your taxes a potential barrier will be gone. Talk about a small action that makes your life easier!
