Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is a key factor in determining what you owe in taxes. The less money you make, the less taxes you will owe.
Two of the best ways to lower your taxes is to save for retirement, either through a 401(k) or through a traditional IRA plan. Contributions made to these plans will lower your taxable income, and lower your taxes.
Taxable income is what’s left after you subtract your AGI by your deductions and exemptions.
The best way for reducing your taxable income is to itemize your deductions. The three largest deductions are state taxes, mortgage interest, and charitable donations.
Tax credits such as credits for college expenses, for saving for retirement, and for adopting children all reduce your tax.
One of the most popular tax credit is the Earned Income Credit (EIC). You may be eligible to claim the earned income credit if your income is below a certain amount. The EIC often results in a refund even if your total tax is reduced to zero.
Avoid owing taxes by increasing your withholding. More money will be taken out of your paycheck in the mean time, but you will get a bigger refund when you file your taxes.
