Family Balance Sheet
AUGUST 17, 2011
Are your financial documents piled up in the corner of your office or under your desk? So much is done electronically now, but there are documents where a paper copy is needed. Credit Card Statements - These can also be found online, so I'm not sure a paper copy is necessary, unless you need it for documentation for tax deductions, then see Taxes below. ALSO , if you are self-employed, you should keep your returns and supporting documents for six years.
