Adjust Your W-4 Withholding Allowance
If you did not receive the tax result you expected in the tax year 2020, or if you have experienced life changes such as having a baby, receiving a raise or decrease in pay, unemployment, or a new job, now is a good time to adjust the amount of taxes withheld from your paycheck by adjusting your withholding on your W-4 and resubmitting the form with your employer.
Take Advantage Of Retirement Funds
Contributing to your retirement savings account is another wonderful strategy to lower your taxable income. You may minimize your taxable income and save for the future by contributing to a 401(k), a Traditional IRA, or even a Roth IRA. For 2021, you can contribute up to the lesser of 25% of your net self-employment income or $58,000 if you are self-employed and contribute to a SEP IRA.
‘Tis The Season To Donate
The Holiday season is approaching, which is an excellent opportunity to clear out your closet and donate household items to those in need. If you itemize your tax deductions, you can help someone in need while also benefiting from a tax deduction for non-cash and monetary gifts made to a qualifying charitable organization. Remember to deduct your mileage (14 cents per mile) traveled for charity work if you volunteer at a registered charitable organization.
