With the varying expiration dates for assorted documents, knowing what to keep and what to destroy can be confusing. Here is a brief list to recap when to keep and when to destroy certain documents.
Paycheck stubs: keep these until you have successfully filed your taxes.
Credit Card receipts: unless needed for tax purposes, dispose of these each month after reconciling them with your monthly statement.
Bank / Credit Card statements: Typically these will only need to be kept for one year. However, you may want to keep a particular statement for upwards of 7 years if it contains transaction data that may be necessary for tax purposes.
Monthly investment statements: Generally should not be kept for longer than 30 days.
Annual investment statements: Hold these for 7 years past the date of selling any investments.
Health benefit documents: hold these for 1 year.
Utility records: Hold these for 3 years.
Tax documents and supporting records: keep these for 7 years after the tax filing date.
