There must be something you can do to pay less in taxes. But just the thought of learning about this stuff makes your eyes glaze over. Take heart -- and take this effective and painless course.

Every year you do your taxes, and every year you say to yourself: Is there anything I could have done to pay less? How can I be certain I’m doing everything I can legally do to get the fattest refund possible?

These questions aren’t just academic. A single deduction or credit could mean hundreds, or even thousands, in your pocket.

For many, the solution is to pay a high-priced professional to do your taxes. But even if you go this route, not only are you out hundreds of bucks, you’re still not guaranteed that they know everything, or that they’re going to ask you the proper questions to make sure you’ve gotten your money’s worth.

The best solution: Learn the basics yourself

Whether you use software, pay a pro or do them yourself, understanding how taxes work can pay off in the form of hundreds, or even thousands, more in your pocket. Just as important, knowledge gives you confidence: no more wondering if you’re doing everything you can to make your bill as low as possible.

We’ve put together a simple, one-hour video course, designed for beginners, that will teach you:

  • Tax Rates and Brackets
  • Timing and Deductions
  • Common Tax Forms
  • The Biggest Tax Breaks
  • When and Where to Go for Help

Added bonus: We’ve made it as fun as possible, so it won’t make your eyes glaze over!

Check it out by clicking here.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Over 10 lectures and one hour of content
  • Identify the most useful deductions and credits
  • Differentiate between taxable and non-taxable income
  • Understand how your taxes are computed
  • Find free tax preparation resources

By the time you’re finished with this course, you’re going to feel a lot more confident filing your taxes. You’ll understand how your tax software arrived at its calculations, and you’ll know that you’ve done far more than the average filer to reduce the amount you pay. And best of all, you’ll be empowered to save money.

Why isn’t it free?

There are ways to learn about taxes without paying a dime, including a ton of articles and video on this website. But we thought it would be useful to try to put all the key concepts in one place. Clicking here or the link above will get you a discounted price: $21.

It’s a full hour of video, which isn’t cheap to produce. While we’re happy to provide you with free content on this website, we had to charge something to offset the cost. But since this course has the potential to keep major money in your pocket and put you in much greater control of your financial world, we hope it’s money well spent.

Here’s one of the early reviews:
“This course has the best setup of any course I have taken on Udemy. Instruction is simple, clear, and concise. Instructor delivers in an exciting manner, keeping your attention. If you want to know more about taxes, this course is a MUST!!!”

Here’s the intro video to “Mastering Your Taxes.” It’s only a couple of minutes long. Check it out, and if you like what you see, check out the rest!
