I'm trying to get rid of unnecessary paperwork.
How long do we need to save tax forms?
What about 401(k) statements? We check most of them online and have canceled the paper statement. Is this OK?
What about bank account statements? We get most of these online as well.
Besides financial statements, we have saved our passports, birth certificates, marriage certificate, etc. in just a filing cabinet. Should these be in something that's fire proof?
Thanks for any advice. I don't want to go on a decluttering spree and throw away something important...
