3 Things to Keep in Mind When Filing Your Taxes

Lauren Smith |

This tax season, there are three important things I’d like to remind you to not forget to do. 


What three important things do you need to keep in mind this tax season? 

First, make sure to make contributions to your Roth or traditional IRA if you’re eligible. The limits for the 2017 tax year are $6,500 if you’re 50 years old or older, and $5,000 for everyone else. 

Second, taxes must be filed by Tuesday, April 17. April 15 falls on a Sunday this year, and April 16 is Emancipation Day, which is a government holiday. 

Third, all of the new deductions and rules that have been put in place don’t go into effect until next year.
