Nellie’s tax tips for a max refund include:

1. Turn to the tax pros: As she explained in the segment, investing a few hundred dollars by turning to a tax professional can help increase your tax refund by about a thousand dollars, as savvy tax pros will better know which deductions, tax credits, and filing status will work in your favor.

2. Rack up your expenses by including tuition-related expenses, job-hunt expenses, mortgage interest/property taxes, state income taxes, moving expenses related to a new job, healthcare costs, qualified energy efficiency upgrades, and business travel expenses.

3. Check how your filing status (married filing jointly, married filing separately) affects your overall tax bill and use the status that works to your advantage.

4. Think about extra contributions to a regular or Roth IRA, as you have until April 15, 2014 to make any contributions (within your allowable limit) and have them apply to your 2013 return.

5. Add up charitable contributions, remembering to include any donations made via text message and even travel costs when volunteering for a qualified organization.

6. Don’t forget valuable tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit, and American Opportunity Tax Credit.

“If you’re getting a tax refund, this can be the perfect time to invest in yourself and start your own business,” said Akalp. “Sometimes all you need is a modest amount of capital to get a business off the ground and allow your dreams to take flight.”
