I am a 25 year old sales rep who made 40k gross last year as an employee of a major lighting company. This year I predict a major jump in earnings as I have already made 65k as of 10-31-01. My income should be about 77k and I'm not sure if there is anything I can do to reduce the amount Uncle Sam will be taking from me. Last year I filed using an accountant for state and federal. I got back about 1,000. I live at home, go to school part-time and have no dependents. I am not married. Is there anything anyone can suggest that I do to lower my taxes? For the last 6 years I have gotten money back so I assume my company is taking out more then enough in taxes to cover me by years end. Please help.
