On the Twelfth Day of . . . Financial Planning?

Does holiday debt, the threat of identity theft, looming college costs, and meager retirement savings have you singing the blues? Texas CPAs can help fine tune your finances with 12 days of tips, loosely based on the carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas.

Day Three, Three French hens: Save to Enjoy Your Golden Years

Day Five, Five golden rings: Valuable Tax Deductions That Ring True

Day Six, Six geese a-laying: College Costs Looming Large?

Day Seven, Seven swans a-swimming: Climb Out of Deep Debt Waters

Day Eight, Eight maids a-milking: It's a Match: Take Advantage of Employer's 401(k) Contributions

Day Nine, Nine ladies dancing: How to Prepare for Your Newest Tiny Dancer

Day 10, Ten lords a-leaping: Credit Cards: Look Before You Leap

Day 11, Eleven pipers piping: Take Steps to Protect Your Personal Finances This Holiday Season
