Yep, tax time is here and many people will either be preparing their income taxes themselves or meeting with an accountant in the coming weeks. Keep track of necessary paperwork in one place like a manila folder or envelope labeled "2011 Taxes." As we know, tax time can be a bit stressful especially when you're scrambling around to find that missing receipt or charitable donation. This year, keep the stress-level down by being more organized.
Another handy idea is to set the target date on your calendar for when you will either sit down at the computer with the tax program you use or meet with the tax preparer. Either way, plan it and have all the necessary paperwork ready to go.
