I know, I know, I said it. And it’s only January. What the heck am I thinking? I mean, there’s almost 3 entire months until we have to file our taxes – why on earth would I bring up such a thing?
Because I hate them, that’s why. And the better-prepped I am NOW, the less stressed out I’ll be LATER. (This is my philosophy on most things, in case you didn’t notice before!)
So, in the spirit of being prepared, or ahead of the game, even, here are 10 things I do during the year to prep for tax time!
I know, I know. I hate it, too. But since it has to be done, I figured I’d share some of my tips…before it’s too late. Don’t worry! You still have more than a month, right?
In our house, my January project is TAXES. Christmas has been packed up and put away, there are no longer nightly functions to attend, and life seems like it just might be getting back to normal.
All year long, I’ve been saving receipts, documents, statements…anything and everything that affects taxes. You know why? Because we itemize! Oh yes! And you would be surprised at the things you can write off!
