Have you hit your standard deduction threshold yet? If not, you still have a few options to help create a lower tax bill for the 2017 tax season. One way is to donate stock you’ve held for more than a year to a charity. You can also consider prepaying next year’s donation in the current year. Another option is to pay your taxes prior to year-end. We can help you find the best option for your situation.
