tax returns retained

Level 1

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.

Form 8867 - Document Retention Requirements for Paid Preparers – Support (taxslayerpro.com)

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

ACME Taxes, Tatoos, Tires and Tomatoes (I had to get rid of the turtles - they kept running away)

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

A professional tax preparer should comply with IRS regulations:
