Experts say it never too early to be prepared for tax season.
Tax experts said right now is the perfect time to gather all of you tax information and get it in one place. Whether you are planning on preparing this year's return yourself or hiring a professional, it's important to be organized.
"If you are going to bring it to a professional provider you will be able to assist that person in providing an accurate tax return," said Clark Kraemer, a tax partner with Ketel Thorstenson.
Kraemer recommends people keep their tax records for a period of seven years.
