Although we are near the middle of 2022, it is never too late to update your financial calendar following these tips.
Financial Planning for the future can be a stressful head-scratching process. If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that you can’t prepare for everything, but you can plan for what you do know. This year may offer a chance for many to start getting their financial plan back on track.
A personal finance calendar contains monthly events and deadlines that could impact your finances. Keeping track of these important monthly dates can help you stick to your financial plan.
A calendar is also a solid budgeting tool, enabling you to plan for holiday shopping and other important expenditures.
Dates to Consider
The dates that will likely be of most significant interest to the average financial planner are the deadlines for filing taxes. In addition to Tax Day on April 18, there are several additional and alternate deadlines throughout the year that may apply to you, depending on your circumstances.
Other dates worth looking out for are the “market movers.” These are events that can have a significant impact on the stock market, positive or negative. These are worth noting if you plan to buy or sell stock.
Consider adding annual holidays and other major life events on your financial calendar. Some events may not set you back too much, but others could be quite expensive, like vacations. It’s always a good idea to budget ahead for these events. With it logged on your calendar, you won’t forget about including these expenses in your financial plan for the year.
