To make sure the IRS gets as little as possible, taxpayers need to claim every tax deduction, credit or other income adjustment they can. But it's easy to miss some.
Here are two overlooked tax breaks that could save you some tax dollars.
If you're looking for a new job in your current professional field, keep track of all your search expenses. Resume copies, employment agency fees and even travel to job interviews count. If you accumulate enough to help you exceed the 2 percent itemized deduction threshold, you can claim them as itemized deductions.
You got the job. Congratulations. Now let Uncle Sam help pay for your move to your new office across the state. Job-related moving expenses can be deducted. Even better, you don't have to itemize to claim them. Just enter your eligible moving costs directly on Form 1040.
