I'm 53 in a high income bracket and getting killed in taxes.

I recommend you spend some time doing volunteer tax returns with a VITA program. The world looks different after I see people trying to live on a total annual income less than my federal income tax obligation. This doesn't reduce my tax obligation, but it helps me appreciate what I get to keep.
