With the filing deadline a mere 27 days away on April 18th, your tax return is probably completed by now. Your CPA or accountant has crunched all the numbers and you know what’s on the bottom line—how much you owe or will be refunded.
How do you feel about your bill or your refund? Did you get back what you expected or wanted? Do you feel you paid too much? Maybe there was a legitimate way to reduce your tax liabilities or increase your refund in 2016.
