For Each Remaining Day of the Year, We would share some Tax-Saving Strategies to consider before the Year 2016 closes Out.
CLUE 1: Make Charitable Contributions - Charitable Donations are an easy way to get a Tax Deduction; The Most Obvious way to make a Donation is to write a Check to your local Church or Non- Profit Organizations. At the End of the Year, the Organization would give you a record of all the Donations, you have been making for the year and you can use this to make your Claims. Both Ways, you are giving to God ( A worthy cause) as well as lowering your Tax Bill.
According to the IRS, A Donor claiming a deduction of $250 or more is required to obtain and keep a written acknowledgement for a charitable contribution, so be sure to get a donation receipt. It's also a good idea to take a picture of your Contribution, just as a Back-up.
Also , making a Donation with your credit card this month means you don't have to pay it off until January- and you still get the deduction. BeSure to check out our website each day till the End of 2016 for more updates on how to lower your Tax Bill. #loweryourTaxBill
