You Don’t Have to Be Scared of Tax Time!

One of the easiest ways to avoid being afraid of the IRS is to be organized and the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack from Staples is a great way to get organized. Get your label writer, file folders, spiral notebooks, pens and you are ready to meet your accountant with a smile.

The first you need to do is get prepared for the tax appointment with your accountant.

My husband has been an accountant for more than 20 years. For many people, tax time is January through April 15th each year. But, when you are an accountant, tax time is all year long. In my career as an attorney, I represented clients in the United States Tax Court and at a variety of Internal Revenue Service audits and investigations. Without fail, people who keep organized records have better results and feel less stressed and aggravated when it comes to filing the required tax returns.


The DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack came with so many items. It came with 4 different label types, power cord, USB cord, LabelWriter software, a quick start guide. I really liked having all the different types of labels in the box to work with right out of the box.


The first thing I did was take out the machine and the Quick Start Guide to get familiar with all the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack can do.

The instructions were great and guided me step by step through the process.


They really wanted to make sure you did not insert the USB cord too soon!



The software was easy to install and no problematic.



The DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack is a great place to start getting organized for tax season. This label maker is easy to purchase. I shopped at my local Staples store which also had a good selection of labels for the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack. Before purchasing my DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack, I did some research to make sure I was getting a machine that would meet my needs, be easy to use, relatively inexpensive and help me save time. I need to be able to print a variety of labels including address, file folder and name badges. I need labels that are crystal-clear and the ability to add my own graphics to the labels. DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  fills all these needs. I am a PC person when it comes to computer technology, but my Mac loving friends will be happy to know the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  will work on their computer system with no problem.

Ink and toner for the printer can become quite expensive. So, this is a consideration when purchasing a label maker. The DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  solves that problem because it uses thermal printing technology. This means that you don’t have to buy ink or toner in order to print labels. In the past, I used label sheets that I printed using my regular printer in my home office. That was nice, but if I did not use an entire sheet of labels, it was a little tricky to line up the sheet of paper and then line up the computer to get the labels printed correctly the next time I had to make labels for something. The DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack is really nice because the roll of labels makes it easy for me to print just what I need without worrying about what to line up and how to set up the printer to get what I want. Because convenience and ease of use are important to me, it made me happy to learn that with the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  I could easily print text from Microsoft® Word, Excel®, Outlook® and QuickBooks®.

When you purchase the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack,  it comes with 4 LabelWriter® Label Rolls, which are competitively priced and the DYMO Label™ software. It was quite convenient that the labels in the package included a roll of appointment card labels, shipping labels, file folder labels and multi-purpose labels. I must admit I like to be creative so the fact that with the DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  I am able to create custom labels from 60+ label styles and layouts. It means my labels can fit my need and personality.

I purchased my DYMO LabelWriter® 450 Value Pack  with tax season in mind. Later it occurred to me I could use it for many other tasks around my office and home including:

  • I purchased on of these last week as I am starting to get organized for next years taxes. It was rough this past year

  • Love that label maker. Tax time is stressful, but you have some good tips.

  • We can still file pretty easily and I've always done our taxes thanks to a computer program. I love these tips and I so need one of those printers!! I use so much ink printing stuff off with our printer. This would make life a lot easier and more organized!

  • I like all the options for layouts and styles. It sounds like a great investment to me.

  • lots of great tips for doing something that most people do not look forward to.

    • I agree! My husband is doing our taxed this weekend. I dread it!

  • I am not scared at all. I have my spouse keeping hold of the business records for the accountant. Good tips here.

  • I need this. I just did my 2015 taxes and it became clear that I need to be more organized.

  • My husband is very organized when it comes to tax time. But we don't have a label maker, maybe I'll talk him into it for next year. Thanks for the great tips!

  • I feel sorry for those people whose taxes are so detailed. We are lucky that we can still final pretty easily.

  • I really do need to get more organized for taxes - and that was apparent this year. Hubby works from home and we moved to a different state. All the changes really complicated things.
