The year is rapidly drawing to a close, and that means it’s time to really think about what additional breaks you might be eligible for right now. If you are concerned about reducing your tax liability for this year, it’s a good time to see what you qualify for. The good news is that there is still time to qualify for a number of tax breaks in 2010. Here are some of the tax moves you can still make:
