What Records Can Be Shredded in 2017?


Well, it depends. Tax returns should be retained permanently, as should legal documents such as contracts, life insurance and escrows. The generally accepted retention period for tax documentation (aside from returns) is six years, plus the current year (which for this year is 2016). Capital purchases, such as real property, stocks, etc., should be retained for three years past the date of last ownership. Keep indefinitely that file containing receipts for home improvements!

A shorter time period can be used for other types of personal records. However, some occupations have statutory requirements for record retention. 

As with all things involving taxes, consult your tax advisor if you have any questions.
