WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is publishing summertime tax tips to provide useful and concise advice on topics that affect taxpayers.
Many people don’t think about their taxes until the start of the filing season in January. That can be a mistake. Steps such as checking your withholding, getting the proper receipts from charities, organizing all the records you will need or setting a personal tax strategy that can save money at tax time are most effective if they are done well before year’s end.
The IRS is publishing three tax tips per week this summer. Topics range from how parents can get credit for sending their kids to day camp to protecting yourself from identity theft.
Now you can receive IRS Tax Tips via e-mail as soon as they are published by signing up through the IRS e-news subscription page, e-News Subscriptions. When subscribing, a confirmation message will be sent via e-mail. Verification must be sent in response in order to confirm a subscription.
