10 Things Not to Do After Tax Season


After the hectic and demanding tax season, it’s tempting to let your guard down and take a breather. However, it’s crucial not to overlook important financial considerations once the deadline has passed. In this article, we present ten essential things that individuals and businesses in Wisconsin and Illinois should avoid after tax season, brought to you by Greenblatt Financial Services.


Neglect Your Financial Goals

Evaluate your progress, adjust targets if necessary, and establish a clear plan for the coming months. Greenblatt Financial can help you develop a customized roadmap to keep your financial goals on track.


Ignore Tax Return Review 

  • Don’t file your tax return and forget about it. Mistakes happen, and it’s essential to review your return carefully. Seek professional assistance if needed to ensure accuracy and identify potential opportunities for tax optimization. Greenblatt Financial’s knowledgeable team can assist you in identifying areas for improvement.


Overlook Tax Law Changes 

  • Tax laws are subject to change, and staying informed is crucial. Don’t assume that last year’s strategies will continue to be effective. Greenblatt Financial stays up-to-date with tax law changes and can guide you on how they may impact your financial decisions moving forward.


Delay Organizing Financial Documents 

  • Don’t procrastinate organizing your financial documents. Proper record-keeping is essential for efficient tax preparation in the future. Start early by organizing receipts, invoices, and other relevant documents, and consider digital solutions for easy accessibility. Greenblatt Financial can provide advice on effective document management.


Disregard Retirement Planning 

  • Don’t neglect your retirement planning once tax season is over. Take advantage of available retirement accounts, review contributions, and adjust as necessary. Greenblatt Financial offers retirement planning services tailored to your specific needs and long-term financial objectives.


Forget About Estate Planning 

  • Estate planning is often overlooked but is vital for protecting your assets and ensuring your wishes are honored. Don’t delay creating or updating your estate plan. Greenblatt Financial can help you navigate the complexities of estate planning and develop a comprehensive strategy that meets your unique requirements.


Avoid Regular Financial Check-Ups

  • Neglecting regular financial check-ups can lead to missed opportunities or unforeseen issues. Schedule periodic reviews with Greenblatt Financial to assess your financial health, monitor progress towards goals, and make necessary adjustments to your financial strategy.


Disregard Debt Management

  • Post-tax season is an opportune time to review and manage your debt. Don’t ignore high-interest debt or delay repayment strategies. Greenblatt Financial can assist you in developing a debt management plan that minimizes interest costs and helps you achieve financial stability.


Neglect Financial Education 

  • Financial literacy is empowering. Don’t overlook the importance of expanding your financial knowledge. Stay informed about investment opportunities, tax strategies, and financial trends. Greenblatt Financial provides educational resources to help you make informed financial decisions.


Forget to Communicate with Your Financial Advisor
