Ask yourself why tax time is such a burden. Is it finding those receipts for your itemized deductions? Is it the dread of filling out those confusing tax forms so you procrastinate until midnight on April 15? Is it that you owe money and have to scramble to write a check at the last minute? By using the lists and shortcuts in my book Listful Thinking, you can start planning ahead and save yourself time and frustration because you’ll have everything at your fingertips.
You’ll have already recorded your deductible bills—like those restaurant receipts or your utility bills for your home office. You’ll be able to account for where your money goes because you’ve got it written down. You’ll be able to budget better so you will have the money in your checking account to cover that ugly tax bill. Taking a few moments each day—seriously, just MOMENTS each day—will save you hours of digging through receipts and dividend statements for that vital info you need at tax time.
And as a thank you for reading my blog, I’ve attached a pdf of the Charitable Donations form so you can get ahead of the curve for next year. And what can be more rewarding around tax time than something free?
So…are you ready to become a Listful Thinker with me?
