Get your old receipts, investments and tax documents in the car and over to South Memphis for some free shredding!
The lay organization of St. Andrew AME Church, 867 S. Parkway East, will offer free document shredding to the public Saturday, March 23, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The shredder will be set up on the parking lot adjacent to the church.
"We list it as a free event but we do accept donations to help with the cost, but payment isn't mandatory," said church spokesperson Michael Steward.
As a general rule, your debit and credit card receipts should be destroyed immediately after you reconcile them with your statements.
Investment documents should be shredded three years after the investment's sale.
The IRS now recommends shredding tax documents three years after the return date, instead of the conventional seven years.
