If you want to get your 2011 taxes in early and get your refund quickly, here are Schnepper’s Seven Strategies to getting those dollars in your pockets ASAP. Here’s what you have to do:
1. Get started
The first step is the hardest. Stop thinking about it and get moving. Until you actually start your return, you’ll never finish it. And that’s probably going to slow down your refund.
If you don’t have all your numbers, just put your name and address on the form. It will get you in the mindset to move forward.
Your first step is to break the inertia. As my father used to say, a trip of a thousand miles begins with a traffic jam. Break that jam and get moving.
