How long should you keep documents?

The length of time you should keep a document depends on the action, expense, or event which the document records.
Generally, you must keep your tax records that support an item of income, deduction or credit shown on your tax return until the period of limitations for that tax return runs out.
• Keep records for 3 years from the date you filed your original return or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later, if you file a claim for credit or refund after you file your return.
• Keep records for 7 years if you file a claim for a loss from worthless securities or bad debt deduction.
• Keep records for 6 years if you do not report income that you should report, and it is more than 25% of the gross income shown on your return.
• Keep employment tax records for at least 4 years after the date that the tax becomes due or is paid, whichever is later.
When your records are no longer needed for tax purposes, to see if you have to keep them longer, check with your CPA, insurance company or creditors who may require you to keep files longer than the IRS does.

What other recycling resources are available in the area?

We encourage business owners, schools and churches as well as individuals to check Ouachita Green's website for numerous
resources and locations to learn to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle items from electronics, chemicals, plastics, construction materials, glass, tires to other substances. Recycling Creates Jobs- the EPA released significant findings on the economic benefits of the recycling industry in the Recycling Economic Information (REI) Study which found that in a single year, recycling and reuse activities in the United States accounted for:
• 757,000 jobs
• $36.6 billion in wages; and
• $6.7 billion in tax revenues.
This equates to 1.57 jobs, $76,000 in wages, and $14,101 in tax revenues for every 1,000 tons of materials recycled.
LET'S DO IT! Let's learn to reduce our trash, reuse items whenever possible and recycle everything else!
