I Love Saving Money

"In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes"  – Benjamin Franklin
I LOVE SAVING MONEY don't you??  I am always looking for new tax tips and any new loop hole I can poke my head into. 
Ok, so as I see it, we are divided into two main groups.  Those who are super organized and sort their receipts and kinda do "tax-prep" all year long, and those who show up with a shoe box and shopping bag at their CPA every year.  Well which ever one you are…..no matter.  It …
