Tax experts say if you’re a first-time tax filer, make sure you obey the rules because pleading ignorance won’t cut it with the IRS. Oren Adler, a certified public accountant in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, says forget about trying “to game” the system because the IRS will find out if you’ve failed to report W-2 or 1099 income properly. He says it’s important to be compliant but also to use the tax code to minimize your taxes by taking all the deductions and tax credits you’re entitled to take. That includes child, earned income and electric vehicle credits as well as deductions for charity and paying back student loans. He also recommends filing electronically and says refund checks are often issued in less than a week.
