With the April 15th tax deadline having come and gone, you might feel a sense of relief since you won’t have to deal with anything tax-related for a while. But just because you’ve completed your taxes for the year doesn’t mean you’re done with tax planning.
Your tax return can tell you a lot about your financial life. In fact, we like to think of it as the window into all of your most important financial decisions.
Are you taking advantage of all the tax benefits you’re entitled to? Are you filing in the most efficient way? Unless you’re a CPA, that might be a difficult question to answer.
