Taxable VS Non-taxable Income
Knowing the difference between the two categories of income can significantly change the outcome of your tax liability.

Earned Income Credit
The Earned Income Credit (EIC) is a tax credit for low and middle income wage earners with and without children. Filing statuses, earned income, as well as the number of children significantly impact the amount of this credit.  Strict requirements must be met in order to qualify for this credit.

How to Avoid Common Problems
Mathematical errors, forgetting to sign your return and more.

Mileage Deductions: Keep track of your deductible mileage on your vehicle and you could see big savings on your tax return. Remember that you MUST keep accurate records in order for the deductions to be allowed.
What Should You Bring To Your Tax Interview?  Personal information for each family member, income and tax information, expenses that may lead to allowable deductions and credits.

Deductions
Most taxpayers have a choice of either taking a standard deduction or itemizing their deductions.
Avoid paying more tax than necessary. Your TaxPrep2Go professional will make sure that you claim all the tax deductions that you are eligible to claim.
