Your Taxes shouldn’t require a Hail Mary play at the last minute, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some year-end tax moves to help you out when you file next year. Here are several different things you should consider doing before December 31st to improve your tax situation.
- Spend the money in your flex-spending health care account.
- If you use your vehicle for business, buy a replacement you can write off.
- Make energy improvements to your home and tax credit. Donate to charity but donate smart—preferably with appreciated stocks.
- Sell losing securities to offset capital gains.
- Close to the yearly medical expense threshold? Spend enough to hit it.
- Pre-pay January’s mortgage now.
- Buy office supplies.
- Put more into your IRA.
- Convert your IRA into a Roth IRA.
- Start paying your Accountant now and deduct the cost. Make sure he is paid in full!
- Set up a donor-advised fund now and spend the money later.
- Put money in a 529 college savings account
- Give money or property to children, up to $15,000 each year.
- Keep in mind that not all of these will be smart for everybody. For example, not all states will cut you a break for funding a 529 account, nut most will.
