A few simple steps while our returns are fresh in our minds can make all the difference when it comes to beating back the icy-cold grip Uncle Sam has on our wallets.

Questions to Ask

That’s because we can glean plenty of info from them about what to do in the future. Did you get a large refund check? Have high capital gains taxes? What about interest income? All of these simple questions can be answered by looking at last year’s return because they provide an excellent roadmap for adjusting this year’s taxes.
