Be on the Lookout for Tax Deduction Carryovers
Deductions or credits not used fully one tax year that may be eligible to be carried over into future years include:
When you have a net operating loss
When your total expenses for a permitted deduction exceed the amount you’re allowed to deduct in a given year
When a credit you qualify for exceeds the amount of tax you owe in a year
Adoption tax credits
Foreign tax credits
Credits for energy efficiency
Track these (or have your software do it) so that you don't forget them from one year to the next.
* This information is not intended to be a substitute for specific, individualized tax advice. We suggest that you discuss your specific tax issues with a qualified tax professional.

Know Your Numbers
According to the American Heart Association, adults should know their key health numbers, including total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), blood pressure, blood sugar, and body mass index. If you’re not sure what your “numbers” are, schedule a visit with your doctor to monitor them and understand why each is important. Here’s a quick definition of each metric:
Cholesterol – Cholesterol is a lipoprotein in our body’s tissues that plays a role in forming and maintaining cell membranes.
Body mass index – Your BMI is calculated using your height and weight, and can help determine whether you’re underweight, at a healthy weight, or overweight.
Blood pressure – Blood pressure refers to the amount of force the heart must use to pump blood throughout the body.
Blood sugar – Blood sugar measures the concentration of glucose in the blood.
