I'm married with no kids and my wife owns the house we live in. We both have claimed a withholding allowance of 1 (each on our individual jobs). We both invest in our 401(k)s. I contribute 6% of my income and she contributes 5%.
At this point we owe about $7000 in taxes per TurboTax (we haven't filed yet only calculated). We owe what we owe and we will pay IRS its due. It was our first year or marriage so we realized changes that we need to make with our deductions and such.
For 2013 for the taxes we owe, I'm wondering if there is a way to lower our tax bill before we file returns before April 15th.
