Daily Tax Tips for the week of Jan. 19

Finger_pointing to rightWe made it through the first official week of tax filing season 2015!

A lot of folks were champing at the bit to get their 1040s to the Internal Revenue Service on Jan. 20's opening day. Good for them for being obsessive-compulsive so prepared.

Some of us, however, will need a bit longer to complete our annual tax task. Either we're still gathering all the material we need to file, or we're still searching for possible tax breaks, or both.

Daily Tax Tips: Our Daily Tax Tip feature can help whenever you're ready to file, as well as suggest some tax moves to make this year to lower your 2015 tax bill. You'll find a new tip each week day through April 15 over there, as the pointing finger indicates, at the top of the ol' blog's right column.

But just in case you miss one while it's being highlighted, I'm going to post a weekly round-up every Friday. Here's what got the tax spotlight the week of Jan. 19-23:

  1. What's your filing status? (Monday, Jan. 19, 2015)
  2. Tax return filing starts Jan. 20 (Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015)
  3. Your many e-filing options (Wednesay, Jan. 21, 2015)
  4. 6 tax filing tips for new taxpayers (Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015)
  5. Tax refund loan alternatives (Friday, Jan. 23, 2015)

Earlier tips archived: The tips actually started on Jan. 6; that was the day the Bankrate Tax Guide, of which {shameless plug} I'm contributing tax editor, debuted.

If you missed those first two weeks of tips or you just want to check out any previous tips at your leisure (I know I peruse tax topics in my spare time!), you'll find them collected on special monthly pages.

The January tax tip page is now well under way. February, March and the first half of April pages will show up as those months arrive.

Here's to happy tax tip reading, happier return filing and happiest tax savings!
