Get the most from Social Security. Younger retirees face a harsh penalty for working part-time. For every $2 earned over $17,640 in 2019 (up from $17,040 in 2018), you lose $1 in Social Security benefits. In the year you reach full retirement age, a higher earnings threshold applies. Your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $3 of earnings only when earnings exceed $46,920 in 2019 if you reach full retirement age (up from $45,360 for 2018).

Taking steps to defer your individual federal income tax bill is often a good idea. If you expect to be in the same tax bracket in future years, lowering this year's taxable income will postpone your tax bill and give you extra cash to work with until the bill comes due. If your tax rates turn out to be lower in future years, deferring taxable income into those future years will cause the deferred amounts to be taxed at lower rates.

The holiday season is fast approaching. It's the time when people traditionally make gifts to charities. Generally, year-end donations increase the charitable deduction you can claim on the personal tax return you'll file the next year. But 2018 is different from most previous tax years.
