3 -Creating Desktop File Folders AND saving PDF documents into them.
Submitting Total Health Care Costs to IRS
When preparing your income and expense records for your Income Tax Return each year, be sure to total the amount paid from each Invoice you have received from us and give the Grand Total to your CPA to add with medical expenses, if any, for your "Total Health Care Costs" for the year. IRS provides a deduction for health care costs that includes our services and products. For some the total has to be a certain amount to receive this deduction, so including our invoice paid amounts may be the difference between receiving that deduction or not.
Therefore, either keep all invoices from us in a home file folder or three-hold punch them upon receipt and insert them at the back of Tab #9 or #10 for quick access when needed.
What To Do When My PEP Binder Is Full?
When the PEP binder we sent you is starting to get full, purchase the following items:
One 3-inch, 3-ring binder with outside (front/back) clear pockets and inside front and back pockets.
Note: Below will be providing a Title Label for the narrow end of the binder so that when you sit the binder on a bookshelf you can read the title of the binder to know what it contains.
And a Cover Sheet to insert into the front clear pocket of the outside of the PEP Binder.
If you need both of these before they are posted below on this web page, contact the office and they will be emailed to you.
One package of Notebook Dividers with 10 Index Tabs.
Then transfer all documents currently in Tab #2, #3, #5, #6, #7 and #9 to the new binder, except for:
