My copy of H&R Block's Tax Cut program arrived this week. They are shipping and in stores.

Now is a great time to do your year end tax planning. Some things to think about--

1. If you have unused lower income tax brackets, use them up with Roth conversions.

2. If you have capital gains, consider offsetting them with any capital losses.

3. If its a high tax rate year for you, now is the time for some charitable giving. After the tsunami, earthquake, and hurricanes, the need is greater than ever.

4. You have until Apr 15 to do your IRA or Roth IRA contribution if you have not already done it, but its a good time to look into it.

Take care of these details before the end of the year.
