Do you have a backlog of paper in your home or business office? Between the daily mail, important paperwork and printed work product, it can be hard to decipher what to keep and what to shred.
These items have information you can find elsewhere -- or they have identifying information that is easy for hackers to scam.
• Sales receipts
• ATM receipts
• Credit card statements
• Paid utility bills
• Credit offers
• Cancelled checks
• Expired warranties
You might need this to refer back to within the calendar year.
• Pay stubs
• Bank statements
• Medical bills
If you haven’t needed these items for the past tax filings, it’s safe to shred after 7 years.
• Tax-related receipts
• Tax-related cancelled checks
