LA CROSSE, Wis. -- - As you start to prepare your taxes, experts say you may want to double check your deductions.
They say most people are used to just filling out the same tax form every year, but that means you may be missing some tax deductions you're eligible for.
Some of the most commonly missed include student loan interest deductions, sales tax deductions and job expense deductions.18395266
While it may take more time to figure out all of the deductions you qualify for, experts say it's worth it to save a few bucks.
"Everyone's going to have to pay tax at some point so deductions and keeping track of those items reduces your taxable income so you're saving yourself money and who doesn't want to save money in this economy?" said Annie Jepson with Becker Tax and Bookkeeping.
As always, taxes are due April 15.
