Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and some tax savings.
That's the idea behind the 2013 year-end feature, Christmas Tax Tips Tunes.
As a tax geek, almost everything makes me think of taxes, including Christmas carols. So for 12 December days leading up to Christmas 2013, I posted holiday musically inspired tax tips.
The end-of-year tax tips are keyed to the following Noels:
- We Three Kings and Federal estate and gift taxation, Dec. 12, 2013

In 2012, December's themed tax tips were delivered by Santa's nine reindeer.
Here's hoping the songs of Christmas 2013 added a little cheer to your holiday season and that the tips will add a little more money to your bank account during the coming tax season.
