Arc you thinking how can I be better organized for this year? Are you wondering how you will get ready for taxes again this year? Karl Beran, Extension FJJucator, Stevens County, offers some guidelines to help you be better organized this year and keep your records in order, Clean out your files now, and as you do this, ask yourself a few questions. What could happen if I don't have this particular piece of paper? Will it cost me more to replace this piece of paper rather than keep it? When it comes to paperwork use the "When in doubt, DON'T throw it out!" In general, the following records should be retained permanently: Income tax returns, worksheets and documentation for deductions. The Internal Revenue Service recommends keeping records for three years. However, tax records are often useful in divorce proceedings and other situations in which your financial history is relevant. After tax returns have been prepared, store them with all documents showing proof of deductions taken. This may include statements from mortgage holders, real estate tax notices, cancelled check copies, and receipts. Records that might be used as proof of ownership, such as deeds, mortgages, purchase agreements, and cancelled checks for larger purchase items should be kept permanently. Proof of debt repayment, cancelled checks for insurance claims and retirement/pension records should not be destroyed. You should also retain proof of date and price of purchases for all investments or other property that might be sold someday or transferred to heirs. Finally, permanently store any correspondence relating to legal and important matters. Records you only need to keep one year would be utility, cable, credit cards, charge accounts, telephone statements, and cancelled checks not needed to prove something mentioned above. Home storage units for records of any type should be dirt, moisture, bug, and rodent-proof. Some !mportant documents should be stored m a safety deposit box. This is also a good time to update records as we start a new year. The following records should be updated on an annual basis: employment benefit plans, financial plans and lists (such as safety deposit box contents), household inventories, living wills, Power of Attorney for health care, health insurance, employment information, education records, and military service status. If you have any questions about the length of time to store other records, contact your banker, lawyer or accountant. ##### Dates to Remember: Jan. 28 - Update meeting for all County Extension Committee member & Commissioners, and Extension Staff at Morris Jan. 30 - Manure Management Workshop at Clinton Memorial Building (9:00 a.m.) Feb. 6 - Corn/Soybean Day at Clinton Memorial Building (9:00 a.m.) and Traverse County Conference Room, Wheaton (I :00 p.m.).
