Before you can close the book on the past year your 2010 taxes must be done. One great way to save money on your taxes is to lower your adjusted gross income and you can do this by opening an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Learn more in our article “Tax Savings for REALTORS®” under our Financial News section.

Start Saving Now
Saving a little bit from each pay check is the best way to avoid feeling overwhelmed when a big expense comes. This goes especially for REALTORS® who may not get that commission check that they were depending on. Experts recommend taking 20% of your paycheck (after taxes) and automatically putting it into a savings account without even thinking about it. You can save for continuing education courses, conventions and annual dues. REALTORS® FCU offers some great ways to save with Certificate and Money Market accounts that offer competitive rates.
