The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act took effect this year, rolling out some major changes to the way individuals and businesses file their taxes. Key changes include the doubling of the standard deduction to $12,000 for singles and $24,000 for married couples who file jointly, the elimination of personal exemptions, and sweeping changes to itemized deductions.
In this third video of a 3-part series, I explain three more strategies for reducing income from hitting your tax return:
- Buying qualified dividends and capital gains type stock funds.
- Investing in tax-efficient stock funds to buy and hold.
- Electing what kind of accounts in which to buy funds, whether an IRA, Roth IRA, or brokerage account.
