Get organized for tax season.

Organization is key when it comes to getting your taxes in order. Have no fear as your tax forms start piling up, these tax prep tips will have you organized and ready to file your taxes in a jiffy.

Start Early.

The sooner you get your taxes done, the better. Not only will you no longer have to worry about getting them in, but you reduce your risk for identity theft and imposters making fraudulent claims.

Set a timeline.

When getting ready to do your taxes, make sure that you plan out your schedule. Make sure that you have enough time to get organized and to review your tax returns by the April 15 deadline. When you plan ahead, it will help you stay on top of your work and you can make any last minute additions if needed.

Keep a separate file.

With so many documents, it’s hard to keep track of everything. Keep all your tax information in one place so that you don’t lose anything. Put all your tax documents and receipts in it so that you can quickly and easily find them when you’re doing your taxes.

Sort through your receipts.

Your receipts might just be hiding a few tax deductions. If you’ve made any business purchases or made any donations to charity, you may qualify for some added tax deductions. To make it easier on yourself for the following year, try putting your business receipts in a separate file to prepare for your 2016 taxes. It never hurts to start early.
