Dear Family,

Today is Good Friday and also the middle of Passover. Lots of places are closed, like banks, stock exchanges, schools, and more. Take some time to enjoy today.

You can start with the Money Funnies. In honor of April Fools Day this weekend, this week’s Money Funny honors Joey Skaggs and New York City’s 28th Annual April Fools’ Day Parade.

In today’s IRS News, we learn more about how the self-employed health insurance deduction works.  Bear in mind, you’re entitled to this deduction if you file a Schedule C, have a partnership, or even an S Corp. If your business is a C Corp, and you set things up properly, your corporation may deduct the health care costs on its tax return. And the IRS released the 2013 list of the Dirty Dozen Tax Scams.

The MarketWatch column next week will be all about how to put real estate into your IRA – and what to watch out for.

In this week’s Equifax Tax Blog you’ll learn about  some Tax Tips for Your Honey-Do List and Tax Aspects of Inheritances.
