It has been a long weekend. I've gone through mountains of receipts to do my personal and business taxes in basically one day.
In the process, I've tossed out over 10 years worth of paper records. I had things going so far back that the ink was faded to unreadable. I'm only keeping 3 years now.
That's what the IRS web site says, "keep records for 3 years." Great!
I've also enjoyed throwing away a mountain of paper related to my short sale of a house last year.
Anyway, next year will be really easy. ;-)
