I am not a tax person or a lawyer, but I do know that using 3 or 7 or any other specific number is not the answer. It depends on the records. Some records with regard to realestate need be kept until after you sell the property. In the case of records showing your purchase price, stock dividends, etc. need be kept until a period of years after the investment is sold.

Get professional advice - from someone who knows the law in your state. Probably a tax person is a good place to start.
