Join the party as we countdown the top five tax tips you need to know before the ball drops. One great way to reduce your taxable income while building your nest egg is to contribute to a retirement savings account. Whether you're contributing to a 401K or a traditional IRA or whether you're self-employed contributing to an SEP IRA, you can reduce your taxable income while saving for the future. Do you have a flexible spending account to cover out-of-pocket health care expenses? Check your account rules to make sure you spend your money before the year ends if it won't roll over. Are you in school or thinking of taking a class? The Lifetime Learning Credit is a tax credit for those continuing their education. It could save you up to $2,000 on your taxes, but you have to pay the tuition for next quarter by December 31st to claim this tax credit on your 2021 taxes. If you have a few stock investments in your portfolio and you have some losing stocks, don't worry. Know that you can recognize your losses and offset your losses against the gains of your winning stock thus lowering your taxes. And lastly, if you're expecting a holiday or end of the year bonus, congratulations! But know that that extra money could bump you up to a higher tax bracket and increase the amount you owe on taxes. So if possible, see if your company can push that extra income back a little bit until after December 31st, so you don't have to pay taxes on it for this year's tax filing. We hope these tips help you ring in 2022 with your biggest refund yet. For more ways to save big at tax time, go to the Turbo tax blog. ~~
