Subject:  How long to keep records? Date:  1/6/2013  8:54 PM
Author:  mawhinney Number:  117311 of 127534

We have boxes and files filled with financial records, old tax returns, files on investments we no longer own, home purchase and sales records,etc. I would like to simplify and destroy unneeded files.
How long is it necessary to keep:
1. income tax returns and supporting documents
2. 401k and IRA records
3. non-tax deferred investment records
4. home purchase and sale records
