  • If you shudder at the thought of doing your taxes, you’re not alone. A 2018 study revealed that 9 in 10 Americans feared to file their income taxes incorrectly. However, tax season is nothing to fear. There are ways you can make doing your taxes a breeze. In this guide, we will show you how to get the most out of taxes. Don’t Forget to Claim Deductions Don’t hesitate to claim all the deductions that are available to you. Some of the most common deductions include medical costs, charitable donations, and business expenses. How do deductions work? They are subtracted from your adjusted gross income which lowers your taxable income — thus lowers the amount of taxes you owe. Also, the fewer taxes you owe, the larger the refund. Before you go claiming expenses, make sure you have receipts so you can itemize your deductions. Also, if you’re claiming charitable donations make sure that the organizations have tax-exempt status with the IRS. Report All of Your Income One mistake that many taxpayers make is underreporting their income. Even if this is unintentional, the consequences can be costly. Unreporting your income on your taxes can result in interest and penalties for unpaid taxes. A common error that many people make is forgetting to include 1099 or contract work. Therefore, take your time and review your return to see if there are any sources of income you are forgetting. Meet Deadlines Federal returns for 2019 are due April 15, 2020.
