Fill It Up Day
April’s tax deadline has come and gone and you met the filing deadlines (way to go!), but before you put all that behind you, you must decide what documents to save and for how long.
Here are three tips to consider:
- Tip 1: Store your prior year’s tax returns and the supporting documents in Virtual StrongBox. It can be helpful to refer to the prior year’s tax return as a guide when preparing the current year’s return.
- Tip 2: As a general rule of thumb, the IRS recommends keeping tax returns and supporting documents for three years.
Tip 3: Quick access to tax information is also essential when applying for mortgages, financial aid, or other loans.
It can be helpful to use a secure online tool such as Virtual StrongBox, an online safe deposit box offered by Align. Tax returns and documents can be scanned, stored, and shared for as long as necessary. Unlike paper files stored in bankers’ boxes, digital documents are also protected from unforeseen household problems, such as water damage due to broken pipes, or fires.
