    Do you have a computerized Follow up/ reminder system?

    So, not for the first time, I forgot to pay my real estate taxes and had to pay the taxes plus $50 in interest. Can someone recommend a reminder system I can put on the computer to remind me of this and my estimated tax due dates?
    Thanks

    If you run the MicroSoft Office Suite, your Outlook Mail can handle tasks like that easily. The calendar portion lets you setup reminders and will also allow you to make them re-occur at specified intervals.

    I use it to keep track of Dr. appointments, Estimated Tax due dates, Emptying days for a dumpster I have use of when there is room...

    I use reminders constantly on my iPhone. Just say “Hey Siri” and tell her to remind me about X at Y time on Z day. Super helpful and useful.

    My mom has some short term memory loss and iPhone reminders would be great for her. Wish I could teach her but she just forgets how to do it.

    It depends on what computer you have as to what may be your best calendar app.

    For me it is still easy to remember the property tax is due at about the same time as my truck registration, state business sales tax and federal income tax. That is one heavy tax month. The car registration is in January. My business license is a different story. That is due in June and always seems to slip my mind. Also since we haven't been doing much business lately we sometimes think about not renewing.

    Another +1 for Google Calendar, you can set it up to email you days or hours in advance.

    I use Thunderbird for email. There is an add-on called Lightning. It has one-time and recurring reminders etc. and syncs with Google calendar among others.

    I have two paper wall calendars that hang in different rooms that I write reminders on. That keeps me current.

    What about your own bank?

    Can you use your bank? We use our bank as we can enter any bill when it is received and at the right day it is paid. The system also generates future transactions report just to follow up your bank account.

    We input into the system all taxes, utility bills, merchandise purchase billing, our internet fiber provider, credit cards, and all. No probs and it is easy to follow up.
