If you're single without children and earned less than $14,820, you might qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit, putting an extra $503 in your pocket. If you're married or have children, that number goes up. So, if you had a summer internship, keep this in mind when filling out your taxes .
It pays to save. As long as you're over 18, you're not in school, and there's no one claiming you as a dependent, you're eligible for the Saver's Credit. When you put money into either your IRA or your employer-sponsored retirement plan, you can receive 0%-50% of that contribution back, depending on your income. Let's say you're single with no children and you made $15,000 this year. If you put $1,000 of that into your retirement plan, you can claim a $500 credit .
The class of 2016 has an average of $37,000 in student loan debt. If you find yourself identifying with that statistic, look into possible tax breaks. As of 2015, you can deduct $2,500 of the interest you paid in student loans over the course of the year .
Job hunting can be a major headache. From applications to interviews, the process can be stressful and expensive. The tax man knows that. You can deduct many of these costs, such as printing and mailing a resume, or even traveling across the country for an interview. Just make sure you're keeping your receipts .
If you happen to get that job across the country, you can deduct your moving expenses. This covers a lot, too-from the cost of moving your household goods to pet transportation services. Uncle Sam can chip in for gas, too, at 23 cents per mile .
Being tax-savvy isn't the only way you can be smart with your money. Check out your options for a savings account and start preparing for your future.
