I live in MA, USA. I recently got a job and feel like almost half of what I earn is going to taxes, and putting money in bank doesn't give enough interest.
So what options do I have (like invest in different things)? What is the best way to minimize my taxes? The question has been asked here https://money.stackexchange.com/q/39398/14200 but was closed because user didn't specify the geographic area.
PS: I already got enrolled for 401K, and I don't own a place or a car.
