Debt hurts all of us. The longer we let it hang there, the more damage it does to our credit, to our lives, and to our stress levels. Fortunately, while the road to getting out of debt can be long, the process can be easy–if you plan for it. Here are 3 ways that your past years taxes can help you move out of debt and even earn you money!
- By filing your past years taxes. If you haven’t filed some of your tax returns, you should stop reading this and do that immediately. Lacking tax records is one of the biggest ways that people accumulate poor interest rates and poor credit scores and it is easily, easily fixed. In fact, many people who have failed to file their back taxes are actually owed a refund! By letting those old taxes linger unfiled, you’re only hurting yourself.
