If your taxes aren't that complicated, google to find ways to file for free. Oh and the irs website actually has a lot of information pages explaining all the terms and forms and what not. I found it very helpful.

You are in college but you are under 24. Depending on the circumstance, your parents may be eligible to claim you and if so, they get your american opp credit.

If not, make sure you have everything you need. 1098T forms etc, and if you paid on student loans, you'd need the form for that.

If your scholarships are more than your tuition, that counts as income. If you had to buy a laptop or other supplies, you need to keep your receipts and have some type of proof that you needed for class (syllabus)

You can get credit for work uniforms on some state taxes if the uniform was paid by you and it isnt suitable for everyday use.

Depending on how much you made, you may be eligible if you meet the income guidelines and...

If you do not have a qualifying child, you must:
  • be age 25 but under 65 at the end of the 2012,
  • live in the United States for more than half the year, and
  • not qualify as a dependent of another person.

For those claiming a child that is not your own, some places are requiring proof of residency for that child...like a daycare letter, lease, or medical...something.

And if you are claiming eic for kids, for the most part, they have to be your decedent or legal descendant.

If you are letting one person claim one child and the other parent claim another...and you live together, only one person can be HOH.

If you are married, try keeping the same person's name first every year.

If you are married and the person owes back child support, make sure you file an "injured spouse" tax form so they don't take your money.

I'll be back with more when I think of them.

Oh, and make sure you look up United Way's free tax preparation program. Stay away from H&R block and other places at all costs unless your taxes are complicated.

See if the VITA program is in your area. FREE tax returns by IRS certified volunteers.

Are you doing it yourself or having someone else do them for you?

I just used TurboTax today. It wasnt too complicated. They charged me 50 bucks at the end though   Angry
