Do you find doing your taxes to be stressful? Do you feel frantic when tax time rolls around every year? It’s understandable that tax season is not an enjoyable time of year for most taxpayers, but it doesn’t always have to be a panicked rush to the deadline. You can make tax time easier next year, starting right now.
The best thing you can do to make preparing your tax return straightforward and hassle-free is to carefully and completely store your tax records. Staring in January (or even right now—it’s not too late!), set up a filing system that organizes all of your relevant documentation. You’ll likely want to separately organize paperwork such as:
- Medical expenses and receipts
- Charitable contributions
- Interest payments
- Pay stubs and 1099s
Then when the time comes to file your tax return, you have all of the information you (or your tax preparer) need to efficiently and correctly fill out the forms.
