It is the time of year where a tremendous amount of your personal information is coming in the mail. Just one tax document has your name, address, and social security number. To protect yourself you need to make sure nothing gets lost. If you have moved make sure you notify all the financial institutions you used in the past year. Everyone should make a list of the financial institutions, jobs, or other sources of tax documents. As each one comes in, check them off the list. If one doesn’t show up, call the institution to make sure they sent it. The bonus is your trip to the accountant will already be organized.
Good advice for your identity protection and for getting organized!
