There’s only 16 days left in 2008 and 120 days left until you absolutely HAVE TO pay taxes. That’s why you should make any big purchases, which can be written off, before the end of the year — for example, I seriously need a computer at home so I don’t have to tote my laptop home every evening. If I hit up the Mac store and buy it before December 31, I’ll be able to write it off on my taxes when I file on April 15. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the economy is in shambles and a computer is a big purchase, but if you need something anyway, you should buy it now so you can benefit financially, at least a little, in 2009.
