It's that time of year again...getting ready for tax season. I have a file folder that I keep in my desk marked taxes. Anytime I make a charitable donation I throw the receipt in there. If I write a check, I make a copy of it first. If it is mileage related (driving for a field trip is tax deductible) I write when, how far, why and stick that in the file. I also keep a list of what items are worth in there to account for my donations to Goodwill. Then at tax time I can pull out the folder, go through it and everything is in one place. No scrambling for checkbooks, trying to remember what happened a year ago, no wondering if I've forgotten anything. It works for me.
