Tax deductions: are you getting your fair share?

Too many families think it takes an act of Congress to cut their taxes-- a point of view that overlooks some profitable opportunities for do-it-yourself tax reforming. By applying a tax reformer's zeal to your own return this year, there's a good chance you can realize a far bigger tax cut than you're likely to get from Congress.

Space planning, revolutionary designs, new materials and technology are making it happen.
