The ides of August are not even upon us, but as I look out the window this morning I can see the kids begrudgingly congregate at the bus stop and make their ways to the local learning institutions. Yes my friends, summer is in the rearview mirror and school is back in session. If you have kids, you’ve probably already met the teachers. You may have even received a list of the tools your kids will need to make their learning experience a success.
It’s probably been a long time since you’ve sat in a classroom yourself. But school is never out if you are looking to make the most of your money in today’s challenging economy. Saving your hard earned tax dollars is one important way to make the most out of your money in this economy.
What classes would you take to keep more of your income in your pocket? We have come up with a list for parents to review for the upcoming tax season. Try these:
· Math 1040: Where are tax rates headed?
· History 2013: Lessons from last year’s mistakes?
· Social Studies 463: Write off meals and entertainment
· Chemistry 162: Introduction to a “secret formula” for paying less tax?
· Anatomy 213: What’s the best strategy for healthcare benefits?
If you want to keep the most of what you make, you can’t wait ‘til finals for answers. You need to study now. Putting tax-wise ideas and strategies in place today could help avoid an ugly surprise when “Report Cards” come due April 15!
