For your money to have the greatest impact, it’s important to know that the non-profit you’re considering has a documented history of managing its finances effectively and accomplishing its mission. It’s a good idea to invest in a little research before investing in a charitable organization, especially if you don’t actually know that much about what the non-profit does or how and where it operates.

Maybe last year you sold a home or sold off a large amount of investments that had greatly grown in value. Perhaps your job is in sales, and because of a super successful year and commission compensation, your take-home pay had an unexpected and very big increase, or your annual bonus was much more than you had anticipated. Whatever the reason for the major positive change in assets and income, you realize that the federal taxes that you need to pay the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) this year may be more than the cash you have on hand, and very likely will bust your budget.

An expected refund, commission or bonus can inspire exciting plans for spending our new money. Splurging on something self-indulgent and, maybe, unnecessary, might seem justified, as the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions, and challenges with the U.S. economy in the past four years have been stressful for many people, both financially and in other ways. It’s natural to want to reward ourselves using part or all of a tax refund or bonus, which we may think of as extra money that’s different from our regular pay. Keep in mind that tax refunds are money that you’ve already earned. Whether it’s your regular pay or a refund, commission, or bonus, you should be still be responsible with how you use that money.

An individual retirement account (IRA) is a type of personal retirement plan offered by many different financial institutions (such as banks, credit unions, brokerage and investment firms) that provides preferential tax treatment on retirement savings, usually through tax-free growth or tax-deferred growth. Tax-deferred growth means you don’t pay taxes on the earnings until you withdraw the money. IRAs are directly managed by the accountholder, while other types of retirement accounts, such as 401(k) accounts or pensions, are usually administered by employers.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) advises that tax filers should hold on to any records that will validate any itemized tax deductions or tax credits that are claimed on a 2021 tax return. If the documents—either in paper or digital form—will be used to establish any tax claims for last year, then keep them for several years after filing taxes this year. Details on how long to hold on to filing documents vary, as the IRS is particular about the time limitations for managing different types of records.
