How Long to Keep Important Papers

It’s mid-February so that means tax time is just right around the corner. Yikes! Are you ready to prepare your taxes? By now you should have received all of the important documents you need to file your tax return.

This is also a great time to go through your household files and get them in order. Purging and re-organizing your files will keep you on track when it comes to preparing your taxes.
