organizing for taxes

Get Organized for Taxes

It’s that time of year again – tax season. Tax time can be stressful for many people because they are not as organized as they should be. If you do your own taxes or if someone else does them, you still need to have your paperwork together.

Of course, throughout the year, we hope you were tucking away those receipts, pay stubs and W-2 forms for easy retrieval. Simply by putting everything in one location you will save time when you get ready to prepare your tax return. If you didn’t do that last year, get a box set up for this year where you can put all of your paper receipts.

If you pay bills online, you have confirmation emails, online banking statements, etc. All of those can be put in folders on your computer to keep it organized for tax season.

Is Your Code Safe? – Monthly Item of Value

Here is my monthly item of value: Can Thieves Crack Your Code?

Yes, you have either fingerprint recognition or a code to get into your phone, but how secure is it? Did you know that most phones will allow you to make a code that is more than four digits?

Your phone and your computer are both at stake here. Learn about how to protect your personal information and keep it from people who want to steal both your money and identity.

On your computer, use a combination of numbers, letters and characters in order to make the password more secure. Many websites will let you know if your password is weak or strong. Take their advice and make them as strong as possible.

Internet home search

Whether you want to go on a virtual tour, check out a neighborhood or get information about a certain property, the internet can be a helpful way to start your home search.

Of course, you cannot get everything from the internet. Sometimes listings are outdated or already sold. Using a realtor to help find homes works best in conjunction with the internet. Your realtor will help guide you through the process, which can be complicated especially if you are a first time home buyer.

Shred-it Event

shred it
Our shredding project on Saturday was a huge success! We nearly filled this truck from our friends at Shred-it.
The people who came were really excited to get rid of their sensitive paperwork and know that it would be safely shredded.
Anyone who attended was asked to bring food to donate and they were happy to do so. The food went to the Perry Hall United Methodist Food Pantry where they serve nearly 60 families each week.
