Now that 2011’s over, it won’t be long before we Americans, at least, need to start preparing our taxes. Unsurprisingly, it often makes things easier to track expenses and deductibles during the year rather than calculating them all at once, and everyone has a different method. I use an Excel spreadsheet marked with different categories, then stuff the receipts in a file.
Some of our planners, like the Trinote, offer dedicated “Receipts and payments” pages, which I imagine you might also be able adapt to that purpose. Or perhaps it’s more useful for small business owners, who have to track both incoming and outgoing funds. Either way, I — and a few of our readers, no doubt — would be curious to hear what people do with these pages… Do you use them? Alter them? Ignore them? Let us know in the comments!
