TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – You’re probably up to your ears in receipts by now, as tax season continues.
If you haven’t filed yet or are doing so for the first time, local tax and accounting expert, Peggy Beasterfeld told KSNT news doing a few simple things could land you a bigger refund check.

Filing your taxes online can mean missing out on a few common deductions. One that’s most common? Daycare expenses.

On the subject, Beasterfeld said, “they can take (claim) what is over…the percentage, the amount that was taken out of their paychecks.”

Other commonly missed deductions include mortgage interest premiums and capital gains tax if you’ve sold a house.
