Tax time is right around the corner and if you haven’t already filed your taxes, now is the time
to get your paperwork in order and get the deed done. No one enjoys filing their taxes, but
waiting until the last minute opens the door to mistakes and the potential for missed deadlines.
You’re going to need a variety of documents, depending on your filing status. The following are
