Taxpayers need to know what tax records to keep
As tax filing season approaches, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has information for taxpayers who wonder how long to keep tax returns and other documents.
Generally, the IRS recommends keeping copies of tax returns and supporting documents at least three years. Some documents should be kept up to seven years in case a taxpayer needs to file an amended return or if questions arise. Keep records relating to real estate up to seven years after disposing of the property.
Health care information statements should be kept with other tax records. Taxpayers do not need to send these forms to IRS as proof of health coverage.
