Ask the Advisor: Key Tax Incentive Changes
Weathering the Storm of Rising Inflation
As the tax-filing deadline closes in, you may wonder: how long do I actually need to hold onto my tax documents? In general, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recommends that you keep tax returns and relevant documentation handy for three years, which is the typical statute of limitations for an IRS audit. However, there are exceptions where you shouldn’t toss your tax returns so quickly.
Keep in mind – just because your tax records are no longer needed for IRS purposes, doesn’t mean you should immediately discard them. First, confirm that other entities like your insurance company or creditors do not need them. Some even recommend holding onto all documents indefinitely in the chance the IRS misplaces your files.
