Looking for the Best Tax Savings

Tax savings are important to all of us. It pays to know and understand IRS rules so that you can take full advantage of all the tax savings programs for which you qualify. Following are a few specific tax savings programs that you should understand, because if you qualify for them, they can save you a bundle.

• Retirement Savings – Retirement accounts are a great way to save money for your retirement years, but they’re also a great way to have tax savings right now. 401k accounts sponsored by your employer as well as traditional IRAs are tax free. There are limits to how much you can deposit into these accounts each year and receive tax savings, but it’s important to put as much as you can into these accounts both for the tax savings you get today as well as preparing for your future.

• Flexible Spending Accounts – Most employers offer flexible spending accounts for their employees. With these accounts, you can set aside money from your pre-tax income for expenses like child care and health care expenses not covered by your insurance, including over the counter medications and co-pays. By setting aside this money on a pre-tax basis, you’ll lower your taxable income, providing tax savings.

• Reinvesting Real Estate Profits – Most people know that you can be exempt from capital gains taxes on your primary home, up to a certain dollar amount. But, many people don’t realize that you can escape paying capital gains taxes on other real estate when you sell it and make a profit. But, the IRS does not hold you liable for capital gains taxes on real estate profits if the profits get reinvested into real estate........
