IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION TO GET FINANCIALLY ORGANIZED

 IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION
 TO GET FINANCIALLY ORGANIZED
 FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people think of Jan. 1 as the date for making New Year's resolutions. But April 15 is just as good a time for making personal financial resolutions, according to Victor Nichols, president of Safeguard Business Systems Inc., one of the nation's leading business information system companies.
 "Nothing focuses our attention on our personal financial lapses quite like doing our taxes each year," said Nichols.
 According to Nichols one of the primary shortcomings taxpayers discover is their failure to adequately organize their financial information. "Despite our best intentions, year after year most of us who itemize our deductions find that we have forgotten all those promises we made last year about getting organized," said Nichols.
 But, according to Nichols, taxpayers can, once and for all, overcome their organizational shortcomings by taking advantage of a very simple strategy used by many small businesses: replace their standard checkbook with a one-write record-keeping system.
 Small business one-write systems hold several different record- keeping forms in alignment so that an entry on the top form is simultaneously duplicated on the forms below, eliminating repetition and transposition errors. Systems are available for a wide range of business needs, including payroll, disbursement, accounts receivable, petty cash control, job cost estimating and many more.
 Individuals can take advantage of the benefits of one-write systems that have been enjoyed by small businesses, according to Nichols.
 These miniature versions are as compact as a normal checkbook, create the records necessary to completely itemize deductions, and do so without the necessity of filling out anything other than the original check. Users never have to copy figures from a check to a stub to a register. They simply write the check, and all necessary data is automatically transferred to their check register. No more transposing figures, forgetting to enter a check, or wondering why the user's figures and the bank's don't agree.
 Personal one-write systems allow the user to break down expenditures by categories, an invaluable aid to accountants in preparing personal income tax returns. Perhaps best of all, the cost of using a personal one-write system is comparable to using ordinary checks.
 While death and taxes may be inevitable, tax preparation chaos need not be, according to Nichols.
