The end of the year is approaching.

As we plan our parties and festivities for this holiday season, we are putting that final stamp on the spending in 2018. Come April, we will look at these expenses, our pay stubs, and our investments, and pay the necessary taxes on them.

That’s why on today’s $mart Women Invest podcast, we are discussing the ins and outs of taxes. Whether it’s knowing the difference between an HSA and FSA or the deadline on filing a SEP IRA—understanding these nooks and crannies helps make tax season that much easier.

Tune in to today’s episode so you can save money this tax season!
