Make sure you're keeping every penny you can! Here are some legitimate deductions that filers often miss.

Step 1: Deduct your taxes
Deduct your state, local, and foreign income taxes, and non-business property taxes. Experts say taxpayers often forget that these are deductible.

Step 2: Track your mileage
Calculate mileage related to medical needs for you and any dependents, like trips to the doctor and pharmacy. Mileage pertaining to charitable works is also deductible, as long as the organization is a 501(c)3 non-profit.

Keep receipts for everything you take as a deduction; if you're audited, anything you can't document won't be allowed.

Step 3: Write off job-hunting expenses
Deduct expenses related to a job search as long as you're seeking a position in the same field as your current field.

Step 4: Cut your gambling losses
Cut your gambling losses: If you won more than $600 gambling, but your losses exceeded those winnings, you may deduct the amount you won.

You must be able to prove your losses, so save receipts from trips to the casino and lottery ticket purchases.

Step 5: Claim your parents
Claim your parents as dependents if they earn less than the exemption amount, and you can prove you are responsible for at least half their living expenses.

Dependent parents don't necessarily have to live with you.

Step 6: Include investment advice
If you paid for financial advice, claim it as an investment expense.

Step 7: Deduct necessary home improvements
Deduct home renovations that are medically necessary, like a wheelchair ramp.

Step 8: Remember rental property
If you have rental property, deduct any and all expenses related to managing and maintaining it, including mileage involved in checking on the property, collecting rent, or running around getting the supplies to make a repair, the cost of which is also deductible.

Step 9: File amended returns
If you missed these deductions or any others, you may file amended tax returns going three years back.

Did You Know?
Americans spend about 100 days a year working just to pay their income taxes.

Small Business Tax Deductions + How to Save Money on Taxes

If you own a company, you must complete annual tax returns. If you run a home business and do not have any employees besides yourself, taxes immediately became much easier. Even though your job just became easier, there is basic but important tax information you should know before you get started, plus tips on how to make the job simpler.

Home Business Tax Deductions

When launching a start-up, many business owners wonder what costs they can and can not deduct. A simple rule to follow is that deductions have to be both ordinary expenses and necessary expenses to the business.

There are a variety of places where entrepreneurs can deduct costs. For instance:A few areas are supplies, advertising, travel and entertainment, insurance, repairs, rental fees, worker pay, etc. Also deductible is the business use of your home and car.

The IRS website has additional information on write offs. If you maintain documented receipts and excellent records of expenditures regularly, tax returns will be easier to complete. Use a business credit card for business expenses. Do not mingle personal and business accounts.

For people who don't use an accountant, you may want to take advantage of a simple accounting software program like Quick Books Pro or Quick Books Simple Start. These programs organize both income and expenses so that preparing income tax returns does not become overwhelming.

Tax Return Documents

The income tax forms needed for a particular business will vary, depending on the way the company is organized (a sole proprietorship, corporation, s corporation, LLC or partnership). You can access the required forms from the IRS site, with directions for filling them out.

According to the IRS website, those who run a sole proprietorship or LLC complete a 1040 individual income tax return form with a Schedule C Attachment, profit or loss from business. Corporate entities use form 1120 while S corporations use form 1120-S. Companies that are partnerships use form 1065.

Tax Preparation Software

A tax professional can be paid to fill out business returns, or you can do them yourself. Just like individual tax software, there is do-it-yourself tax preparation software for small businesses.

You can even find home and business software packages which include both programs for preparing personal returns and corporation business returns. Buying a multi-software package most times is marked down and can be a great deal for small internet businesses on a budget.

Recognized companies such as H&R Block and Intuit offer home and business software together that you can buy for under $100. For people who do not like to download and install software, Tax Act offers a web-based program that is accessible online and you don't have to hassle with any software.

Tax returns filled out by a tax professional can set you back $500 or more, so there is a big cost savings to doing the work yourself. However, tax pros typically have knowledge of little-known deductions that non-professionals miss out on, and professionals can of course save you the work completing returns.

Lower Taxes, Higher Revenue

Should tax rates be higher? It's the million dollar question! Up? Down? No change? Where in the world should taxes go? In election years, the question of tax rates fills the airwaves. In non-election years, the question of tax rates, again, fills the airwaves. So what's the answer? UCLA Professor of Economics Tim Groseclose explains his research on the topic. Basically, there's a certain point at which higher tax rates actually reduce the amount of revenue the government collects. What's that point? When are tax rates too high? Learn a valuable lesson in economics, and public policy.
