Little Known Tax Deductions That Can Save You Big
by Diane Hughes (c) 2002

When you say "end of the year," most small business owners think of two things immediately. The *second* is the holidays. The *first* is taxes! While almost all of us pay taxes quarterly, we still have to file in January. That means November and December are spent getting ready. When you're gathering all your information together for your accountant, don't forget about these regularly overlooked deductions.

Penalty Free Money for College from Your IRA
Copyright 2003, Daniel Lamaute

Higher education is very important for landing lucrative jobs. For many the challenge is finding the money for college. One piece of good news is that if you use money from an IRA to pay for education expenses the IRA account holder may qualify for a tax break.

Are You Financially Fit?
By PT Cheng

There is an alternative -- track what you *save* instead. Here's an example of how to use this to your advantage.

Crisis Fund
By Terry Rigg

What would it be like to have a pot of money available when you have an unexpected expense? I used to think that unexpected expenses was something that happened very rarely. But it seems like these days I have as many unexpected expenses as I do regular bills. One of the vehicles is always needing tires or repairs, the washing machine needs replaced or buying a new water heater (like I did just last week). That is where the Crisis Fund comes in.
