1. State sales taxes – unfortunately though you have to have your receipts! Yikes. Well start saving your receipts for this year.

2. Out-of-pocket charitable contributions – Like ingredients for donated food. Worth of old clothes items.

3. Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit – They’d upped it to 6K this year, more than ever!

4. Medical and Dental Expenses – don’t forget to add in your co-pays! You might even be able to take your gym membership off if your doctor signs off on it.

5. Job search costs. Parking, tolls, resume help, printing, gas to get to an interview and anything else related to a job search!
