WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) — Most of us don’t even want to hear the word ‘W-2’ until March or even April.

But there are good reasons to think about your tax situation as the year comes to a close.

Rohrig Financial says tax loss harvesting is one way investors save money as December rolls around.

If they sell investments with losses and buy shares in a similar market, they can offset thousands against their taxable income.

You don’t even have to have a lot of money in the market to take advantage of it.

If you’ve got a little extra money in your pocket, right now’s a good time to be buying the market. Might want to look at your 401K, you can easily just increase that contribution limit at that point in time, that’s a good time to do that now. If you’re a business owner, there’s still time to be able to put some retirement accounts to work.
