Planning Tip

 

When looking at your federal income tax bracket, pay attention first to your last bracket. Why? That’s where you start to pocket cash when you find a new or additional tax deduction.

 

Example: You are married. You and your spouse have taxable income of $110,000. That puts the two of you in the 25 percent federal income tax bracket. If you can find $10,000 in new deductions, you pocket $2,500.
