I don’t know anyone who loves to get their information ready for tax time. This task can be even harder for adults with ADHD – because of the organization that is needed, as well as the need to keep track of all of the information needed over a whole year.
Margarita Tartakovsky wrote a great article on Psychcentral called: Tax Prep for People with ADHD for Next Year. You can read the full article at that link.
The three main points of the article:
- Figure out what information you should be saving
- Have a way to record tax deductible expenses
- Create one place for tax related paperwork
- Schedule tax time each week.
With some work early in the year, and a small amount of time throughout the year, you can improve your tax prep significantly. This can help you to file on time, save on late fees, or get a refund much more quickly. It can also lower your stress.
