Organize Your Tax Documents

By now you should have received all of your tax documents from your jobs, banks, investments accounts, and other sources. To make tax preparation easier, get a couple of manila envelopes or folders and divide the documents into at least two groups: income and expenses.

If you haven't started your taxes yet, collect all the documents you need and schedule the appointment with your tax professional. There are benefits of early tax filing, even if you aren't getting a refund.
