You almost certainly know that you can write off the mileage for business use of your car. That advice is still true. A nice bonus is that it is easier than ever to track your business mileage with a variety of smartphone apps available. Mileage, however, isn’t the only automotive write-off that you should be pursuing. If you use your vehicle for anything work-related, there are deductions that you might be missing out on. Lease payments, oil changes, insurance, repairs, and even car washing and polishing could be written off. Don’t fall for tax myths, fuel your savings with automotive write-offs.
As 2018 winds down to a close we wanted to provide you with a list of the Top 5 Last-Minute tax reduction solutions.
1. Appreciated Assets: (Stocks, Real Estate, etc...)
With a soft stock market, but a robust real estate market in 2018, it makes sense to lock in gains and to gift appreciated asset(s) instead of writing checks.
Example of why: Stock purchased for $5,000 has now appreciated to $10,000. A gifting of the stock to a 501(c)3 avoids the capital gains taxes of $750 (assuming a 15% LTCG tax rate). Also, you still get a tax deduction for the $10,000 donated.
As you know the term “subluxation” is used by doctors of chiropractic to depict the altered position of the vertebra and subsequent functional loss which determines the location for Chiropractors to perform a spinal adjustment.
When a person has a subluxation of the spine it has caused functional loss and pain. For most Chiropractors when it comes to the subject of taxes we look at tax subluxations as the lack of effective tax planning. This, in turn, creates financial loss and pain with an unnecessary overpayment of taxes.
