With the 2014 tax year behind us, now is the time to focus on the 2015 tax year. Last fall, the IRS announced cost-of-living and other adjustments for tax tables (tax rates), standard deductions, personal exemption amounts, AMT exemptions, tax credits and the kiddie tax. The Social Security Administration has also announced the wage base and maximum benefits for 2015. You'll find them all here.

With Tax Day finally behind you, you're ready to finally utter a sigh of relief... until you realize you've made a mistake. Don't worry: mistakes on your tax return are totally fixable. In most cases, you just need to file a form 1040X (amended return).

Art collector Robert Ellsworth ate at Donohue's restaurant nearly every day for 50 years. When he died, he was sure to remember his favorite waitresses with gifts of $50,000 in his will - even though he didn't know their last names.
