The Tax Man cometh

The Internal Revenue Service has released its new tips for taxpayers for the upcoming tax return season.

Just as it is time to think about New Year’s resolutions, it is also time to think about getting ready to file your 2010 tax return. But how do you find out about the changes in tax laws and deductions that have been set in motion for this year? What are the ways you can minimize your taxes, maximize your refund and keep the probability of being audited as low as possible. For some, the question might even be if you need to file a return at all. Our good friends at the Internal Revenue Service have all the answers.

The most recent tax tips published by the IRS can be found at the following links:
