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 solar the answer

Ever considered solar?

In ancient times, the Greeks used passive solar to help warm their homes in the winter and stay cooler in the summer. Later came the Romans. They used heat from the sun, picking the optimum places for windows. They were the first to use glass windows that would trap the warmth. We’ve come a long way since then.

While most American use traditional methods of getting electricity to their homes, sun powered energy is coming into its own. The price of getting solar can be prohibitive for some, but an investment of this type can pay off in the long run.

Please read my monthly item of value: The Scoop on Solar to get the full story about adding it to your home.
