With the election over and uncertainty about any new tax laws for 2017, we still have to focus on the upcoming tax season. And while many of the tax laws passed in 2014 and 2015 as well as the health insurance credits and/or penalties are still with us, many have had life or investment changes, including death, inheritance, marriage, divorce, retirement, IRA withdrawals, stock and mutual fund sales etc. which can make preparing taxes tricky.
