Every January it seems that the complaining will begin that tax time is right around the corner. I have put together a brief video that includes a few tips and tricks to help make tax time less stressful and hopefully headache free. It only takes a little organization through out the year and a little pre-planning to have a happy and stress free tax season.
The biggest headache at tax time is gathering all your documents and receipts needed to file your return and knowing what you need to complete your return. One of the best ways to do this is to compile a list from your previous tax return of all the things that you needed for the prior year. This is a good starting point. As you receive documents throughout the year, file and check them off or add them to the list you prepared. In addition, keep all your receipts in one place and show all the members in your household where that place is so that they can help compile the stuff you need instead of leaving it up to you to find everything. These few tips will get you well on your way to a much more organized and happy tax season.
