The most important thing for any tax payer is to enjoy tax deductions while filing their tax returns. Here are few ideas through which you can get benefit of tax deduction:
Business expense that is not expected
If something is used to benefit your business and you can document the reasons for it, you generally can deduct it off your business income. For example a bodybuilder got approved to deduct the body oil he used in competition.
Social Security of self-employed person
The self-employed person has to pay 15.3 percent of their income for social security taxes; it is more than a employed person because self-employed person pays both portions of tax; employer portion and employee portion. IRS allows 7.65 percent employer portion deduction from your income taxes.
IRS gives a lot of tax breaks not only to the college students but also to other people who are doing post-graduation. The Lifetime Learning credit can provide up to $2,000 per year, taking off 20 percent of the first $10,000 you spend for education after high school in an effort to give you new or improved job skills. This offer is not valid to a person earning high income, it is valid for people of every age group.
Jobless? Get a Tax credit!
Losing your job is traumatic, and the cost of finding a new one can be high. But if you’re looking for a job in the same field, you itemize your deductions and these expenses exceed 2 percent of your gross income, any expenses over that threshold can be deducted.
