5 Things to Do With Your Money Before the Year Ends
Standard financial advice says to save, save, save, often without specific timelines. That's good advice—but more good advice reminds savers and spenders alike that the end of the year comes with some important financial deadlines. The final months of the year are a great time to boost the financial efforts you've been making all year or even make up for some less-than-stellar money decisions or difficulties.
The financial decisions you make now—if you didn't make them earlier in the year—can help lower your tax bill next year, protect you from fraud, and even improve your health and the world around you. Whether it's been a tough year that you want to end on a high note or you want to take steps now to make next year better, these suggestions can help.
