Retirement Minute: Three Tax Planning Tips for 2012

Retirement Minute – Three Tax Planning Tips for 2012

by John Bearss

Now that October has arrived, I would like to challenge you to take this month and start planning for how you are going to reduce your taxes in year 2012.  Your CPA can be a good source to help you with this planning by suggesting different tax benefits that you can implement.  

So ask yourself some questions like:

1. If I need to do home updates, are there any tax credits I can take advantage of?

2. Should I contribute to my Traditional IRA or should I increase my contributions into my 401(k) plan?

3. If you have a home business, what items can I write off?  Like mileage or a portion of my mortgage payment.

I love this quote by Arthur Godfrey, he said, “I’m proud to be paying taxes in the United States.  The only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.”  So start your tax planning for 2012, now.
