Tax rules can be complicated, but taking some time to know and use them for your benefit can change how much you end up paying (or getting back) when you file. Some key tax planning and tax strategy concepts are:
- Understanding what federal tax bracket you’re in
- The difference between tax deductions and tax credits
- Deciding whether to itemize or take the standard deduction
Here are some additional tax planning strategies to shelter income or cut your tax bill:
- Adjust your W-4
- Put money in a 401(k)
- Put money in an IRA
- Open a 529 account
- Fund your Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
- Use Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DCFSAs)
- Maximize Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
There are a vast number of deductions and credits available, and they all have their own rules about who’s allowed to take them. We can help figure out which deductions and credits you’re eligible for.
