5. Choose the Right Filing Status
Selecting the appropriate filing status can impact your tax liability. Compare different filing statuses to determine the one that minimizes your taxes.
6. Take Advantage of Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
Utilize FSAs for healthcare and dependent care expenses. Contributions are made pre-tax, reducing your taxable income.
7. Time Your Income and Expenses
Timing is crucial. Depending on your financial situation, consider deferring income to the next year or accelerating deductions into the current year.
8. Invest Tax-Efficiently
Hold tax-efficient investments in taxable accounts and tax-inefficient investments in tax-advantaged accounts to optimize your after-tax returns.
9. Be Mindful of Capital Gains
Understand the tax implications of capital gains. Holding investments for more than a year may qualify for lower capital gains tax rates.
10. Review Tax Withholding
Regularly review your tax withholding to ensure you’re not overpaying or underpaying taxes throughout the year.
