With the current national debt close to $17 trillion, more changes might not be out of the question in the future. You can’t control tax policy, but you can control your own personal economy. There are several measures you can take to reduce your overall tax bill simply by educating yourself and doing a little work. If you’re serious about saving money on taxes, check out the following helpful tips.

Alternatively, explore the many options for tax preparation software from your local retailer. Most are very user-friendly and are designed to maximize your return and minimize your bill. Plus, the cost of that software is tax-deductible.
