It's that time of year again. You know, when you realize you fell short on the promise to be more organized after last year's scurry to find tax documents. Never fear...there's a checklist for that. With today's technology and a digital version of everything important, you can build the system to keep it all together for yourself or your preparer.

There are many guides to getting prepared out there, and I thought this one was well-organized and quite thorough under each broad topic:

  • Before you get started
  • Personal information
  • information about your income
  • Adjustments to your income
  • Itemized tax deductions and credits
  • Taxes you've paid
  • Other information
By the way, if you're charitable-minded and still find benefit in itemizing, there is a link on this checklist to an under-utilized free tool called ItsDeductible.

Your Life

While cow’s milk is a popular choice for many, some people can’t or choose not to drink milk due to personal preferences, dietary restrictions, allergies, or intolerances. Thankfully, there are so many non-dairy options in the market today, including soy, coconut, nuts, oat, rice, hemp, quinoa, etc. Unfortunately, this area currently has no adopted enforceable standards, so unfounded claims on the product labels can mislead the public. Some do not meet the FDA’s definition of a dairy product because they do not have the unique attributes and nutritional values provided by dairy. All that is about to change: FDA recently released draft guidelines on labeling plant-based milk items. Check it out.
