March To Do List
Technically, you have a month and a half until you HAVE to file your taxes, but go ahead and start or finish them now. The sooner you get them done the sooner you can forget about them relax for another year. If you have a refund coming, file your taxes yesterday, yes, yesterday. If you owe taxes, wait until the first or second week of April to file. Once you have finished filing, be sure to file your tax forms along with all supporting documentation away, just in case you ever need it. I recommend using a pocket folder to keep all those papers neatly together in one place and easy to find.
