Personal Budgeting: Benefits

Keys to Getting Started

Budgeting Basics: 
Budgeting is the process of tracking your income and expenses.  Many people cringe when they hear the word budget: they assume it is complicated and takes too much time. 
The reality is that budgets don’t have to be complicated and you can’t afford not to make time.  A budget tells you where your money is going and helps you to achieve your financial goals.

Here are some tips to get started.

1. Start with the Necessities

Expenses such as housing, utilities, gas and food normally don’t change and should be considered first.
2. Track All Your Expenses

You must track all your expenses in order to track your progress against your budget.  No expense is too small.  Tracking all your expenses exposes where you could be wasting money.
3. Take Advantage of Budgeting Tools

There are several application and software tools to help make budgeting simpler.  Microsoft Excel provides basic and detailed Budget Templates.  Free Apps such as Every Dollar and Mint allow you to track spending on the go.
4. Adjust Your Budget For Changes

Expenses change from month to month.  Include expenses for oil changes, gifts, and doctor visits.  Adding these items to your budget will help you plan and avoid surprises.
5. Find Ways to Reduce Spending

When you track your expenses, you can see where you are wasting money.  Eating out, cable, and entertainment can easily add up during the month.  Reducing or eliminating these expenses can save you money.
6. Include Some Money for Play

A common myth is that budgets take the fun out of money. It is okay to add some money for relaxation in your budget.  Moderation is key.
7. You Won’t Always Get It Right The First Time

Your first few budgets may not always work as planned.  That is okay. Learn from your mistakes and continue improving.
8. Get An Accountability Partner

Couples should complete the budget together and agree to hold each other accountable.  Singles should find an accountability partner.  If you know someone is checking on you, you are more likely to stay with the budget you created.         
Emergency Funds: DO NOT Get Caught Without One
Half of all Americans are still living paycheck to paycheck. 

According to a recent survey by Bankrate.com 57% of Americans don’t have enough money to cover a $500 emergency.  This means something as simple as a doctor’s visit or a car repair will wipe many Americans out financially. Some people use credit cards and go deeper in debt and others borrow from friends and family. Emergencies can and will happen, but sadly many of us are not prepared.  This is when desperate times lead to bad financial decisions.

So what can you do?
Start an emergency fund today. 
Simple right?  
But most people say they don’t have any extra money to save. 
If you have the money to eat out, pay for cable, or drink coffee at the local popular coffee house, you have money to save for an emergency fund. 

You can start out with as little as $5 per paycheck. 
Setting up automatic transfer to a bank account that you cannot touch except for emergencies.  Set of goal of $500 if you are just starting. 
Let's talk... we can help you get started on your plan.

It's your future... 
Tax Tips
Every year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires taxpayers who earn income to file taxes.  This is normally a time of relief or great stress dependent upon your expectation of a tax refund or tax due to the IRS. 

Here are a few tax tips you can use to reduce your tax liability this year.

1. Evaluate the Number of Exemptions On Your W-4

One of the first forms completed upon employment is the W-4 form.  This form required by the IRS allows you to determine the amount of tax withheld from your tax pay.  If you normally receive a large refund, you may want to increase the number of exemptions. Why you ask?  When you have more tax withheld than required, you are giving the government an interest free loan.  You don’t have to wait until the beginning of the year to receive a refund when you can have the money during the year. Increasing the number of exemptions increases your disposable income.  You may also want to consider changing your W-4 if there is a change in marital status or you have a child during the year. 

2. Don’t Miss Out on Deductions
Tax Deductions are available for homeowners, students, and taxpayers with children.  Homeowners are allowed to itemize deductions for mortgage interest, property taxes, and charitable contributions.  Your home represents one of your biggest expenses, why not take advantage of the tax deductions.  If you are a student, there are education credits such as the American Opportunity Credit (Hope), Lifetime Learning Credit, and the Tuition and Fees Deduction. The Child Tax Credit of $1,000 is available for children under the age of 17. Dependent upon your income, the earned income tax is also available.  The IRS has requirements to qualify for the deductions listed, but it is beneficial to research these opportunities to save money.
3. Save for Retirement and Reduce Your Tax Liability

Many employers offer 401(k) plans to their employees.  Saving for retirement using a 401(k) plan reduces your tax liability.  A Traditional IRA is   another tool you can use to reduce your tax liability.  Contributions to a  Traditional IRA is made with after tax dollars.  The amount you contribute (up to $5,500 for singles, and $11,000 for married couples) reduces your adjusted gross income and your tax liability.

4. Maintain Records During the Year
It is important to keep your tax documents and supporting documents.  It is recommended you keep your tax return for seven years.  Tax Returns are subject to audit by the IRS. It is much easier to have the documentation prepared than to go back and try to re-create the documents for a tax return. 
5. Stay in Contact With Your Tax Professional
It is important to stay in contact with your tax professional during the year.  Your tax professional can help you find tax credits available to you that can reduce tax liability. They can also help you determine the amount of deductions to take on the W-4. 

Contact us today or your tax professional before making major financial decisions, starting a business, or changing jobs.
