I'm cleaning out the filing cabinet today! Chat Icon How far back do you save things like pay stubs? I'm thinking a year?

I don't know..they don't take up much room, so I just keep filing them away.

One year - until I get my W2 for the previous year, then I shred them.

Re: How long do you keep old pay stubs in your files?

I think 2 or 3 years, which is probably too long - I do save the end of the year ones for a while - and keep them with my tax returns.

Re: How long do you keep old pay stubs in your files?

I had an arguement the other day about this with DH and my Mom. I said 1 year, and they say forever, cause you can always get audited. But I figured you would just need your W-2's not every pay stub. I have a friend who throws them in the trash the second she gets them though!

I didn't keep them either when I was working at my last job. Everything was online through HR.

I don't save them for long periods of time either. I didn't think it was too "smart" to keep all those stubs laying around (or filed) with my soc all over them. I thought I was doing a GOOD thing by disposing them monthly.

Re: How long do you keep old pay stubs in your files?

I keep them for a month and then chuck them. The only thing I would need one for is a loan and then it would have to be a recent paystub, so I don't see the sense in having them hanging around.

I used to save everything I had about 12 years worth Chat Icon

Now - I save for a year, then chuck.

Audits don't go back forever, though. I think it's 5 years (but I forget).

I don't at all. I just keep my W-2's with my tax returns.

Ours are online, so we don't get a printed copy anyway.
