Tax Deductions Extended: When Congress cut a deal to avoid falling off the so-called “fiscal cliff”, a number of federal income tax deductions that would have expired January 1 have been extended through 2013. Local CPA Byron Swaim said among those tax breaks that are once again available for 2012 federal tax returns are the above-the-line teacher deduction, an energy conversation deduction and the child adoption tax credit. If you have questions about your tax return, it’s always best to consult a professional financial advisor or accountant you trust.
