The White House’s Tax Filing Tips

This article was written by in Taxes. Add a comment.

In the past 14 months, we’ve covered many of the ways the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act might affect your household finances, including home buyer tax credits and energy efficiency tax credits.

If you still haven’t yet found the time to file your taxes, or if you’re the sort of person who makes it a sort of game to wait until the last possible second (I used to do that, though I can’t explain why), you might find some useful information from the Recovery Act Tax Savings Tool. It’s an interactive tool on the White House’s web site that asks you questions about your particular situation and offers reminders about tax savings or credits.

If you’re using a professional filing tool or company to help you, there’s a good chance they’ll also cover these same questions, but you can’t be too prepared, or be too informed.
