Plan ahead!

With tax season almost over, take the time now to get organized and reduce the stress for next year. First, download the IRS publication Recordkeeping for Individuals for guidance on which records to keep and for how long. After you've cleaned out your files, bring up to five boxes of paper to the City of Austin's free shred day on Saturday, April 19, 2008 in the Austin High School parking lot, 1715 W. Cesar Chavez from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Also, visit the Solid Waste Services site for ways to dispose of other materials safely. Then, check out one of the following titles for some helpful organization and time management tips:
