Personal Finance, Taxes Feature Package

1. Don't be 'taken' this tax season WASHINGTON, Jan. 31, 2014

/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was written by Marietta

Rodriguez, vice president mortgage programs, NeighborWorks America:

All of the data aren't in yet for 2013, but it's safe to assume that

hundreds of thousands of people became first-time homeowners last

year. Becoming a homeowner also means that many people for the first

time will find it beneficial to itemize their tax returns. The

advertisements about using a paid, professional service for completing

and filing tax forms are filling the airwaves, newspapers and other

media. Most of these advertisements promise friendly and fast service.

But few if any of these ads disclose the cost.

2. Five W-2 Tips to Put More Money in Your Pocket from the American

Payroll Association SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- January

31 was the date for employers to provide Form W-2, Wage and Tax

Statement to their employees - in person, electronically, or by mail.

Income tax returns and future social security benefits are based on

this form so its accuracy is essential.
