Tax preparation can be daunting! But with a little prior planning and the right tool, you can make your tax burden easier.

I recommend the Smead Tax Organizer to file your tax documents as they roll in during the year, particularly in January.  It offers 12 pockets within the organizer and comes with pre-printed labels, blank labels and instructions.  What could be more simple?

Keep this organizer in a convenient location so that you can drop papers in it as they come in.  If you have a business, you want to consider having one organizer just for your business and one for personal tax papers.

You can get yours at Amazon for less than $20.  What do  you store your tax documents in?
