tax returns retained

Level 3

I realize this may not be a very important tax question to some, but it is to me!  I have a very small apartment, and even smaller office.  Can you tell me how long I have to keep my paper returns?   I appreciate any advice, because I am starting to sleep standing up, and my Bulldogge is sleeping on top of the filing cabinet!  LOL  

Seriously, I would appreciate what help you can give me.  Thanks so much! Looking forward to a new season!!       Blessings to all!!!

See if this helps.

Not enough room for you and the dog on top of the filing cabinet?

The requirement is in circular 230.  

Think about printing to pdf and saving in client folders. Same for client documentation; w2's etc. They take up a whole lot less space that way.

If at first you don’t succeed…..find a workaround
