Check your income level and tax breaks

Posted on Nov 8, 2011

Check into all the tax credits and deductions for which you might qualify this year. Because some of these tax breaks are reduced or eliminated entirely once your income reaches certain limits, you need to be aware of the income phase-out thresholds for those credits and deductions. While it doesn’t make sense to make less income just to qualify for a tax break, shifting income from one year to another may sometimes be a smart thing to do.
