It's in the corner.  Over there.  Buried under the mountain of clutter.  The mail you innocently tossed on the table in your hallway. You meant to read it but were too busy at that moment.  No matter, you could read it later. But then dinner had to be made, laundry had to be done, lunches needed to be made for the next day.  You said you'll read it tomorrow.

What about that pile of 'stuff' on top of the fridge?  Crammed in the dash of your car?  You know the scenario.  Now is the time you realize how disorganized your important, financial documents are.
 

Filing our Income Tax Returns is generally not something we enjoy, however, if you are organized it can be a lot less painful and frustrating.  If you're starting this year without any preparation, it could take a considerable amount of time to locate all required documents.  Chances are, there will be one or two pieces of missing receipts that you can't get your hands on.  This can cost you money and time - especially if you locate them a week or two later and run them into your tax professional.  What if you miss out on a tax benefit you are entitled to but can't find have 'that piece of paper' you need? Very few of us...
