Tax time might be out of sight once again, but it shouldn’t be out of mind. There are ways you can — and should — be prepping for next year’s round. Now that you have this year’s taxes out of the way, it’s time to get a jump on April 15, 2014.
What to store:
Receipt Catcher is an app that lets you take a photo of a receipt, tag it with info, and then email it to yourself. When you’re ready, you can print out a year’s worth of receipts in a few clicks. The app costs 99 cents and is available for both Android and iPhone.
Take a few minutes to research what changes are in store for this year. Will the deductions and credits you used for 2012 be around for 2013? Are new deductions available? The more you know now, the easier it will be to minimize your tax liability.
