The 100 Most Celebrated Travel Books of All Time

Lists: The definitive list of travel books that travel writers, editors, bloggers and readers love best

06.15.10 | 9:07 AM ET

You ll find that a few books don t fit the most rigid definition of travel memoir; we didn t want our list to be too narrow or fussy. Rather, we wanted it to be broad and inclusive. Also, although we numbered the books from 1 to 100, we didn t rank them; they appear here in alphabetical order. (You can find the 10 most celebrated books here .) The lists we drew from are noted below the book titles. The numbers in brackets after each book title on the list correspond to the source lists on which that title appears; a dollar sign in brackets indicates that a book was included based on extremely high sales. (Read the fine print for more detail on how we determined the 100 most celebrated travel books of all time.)

10 Tax Write-Offs You Aren – t Using to Your Advantage


#

Mashable

10 Tax Write-Offs You Aren t Using to Your Advantage

You already know that you’re legally obligated to pay your taxes, but that doesn’t mean you should pay more than you owe.

Each year, American taxpayers leave money on the table by missing some key deductions. Run through these commonly overlooked write-offs to see if there are any you should be taking. It might just mean more money in your pocket this year.

1. Education

When it comes to education, you may be able to deduct up to $4,000 for tuition-related expenses for you, your spouse or a dependent. You also may be able to deduct up to $2,500 in interest paid on a student loan in 2013.

In addition to these deductions (which lower your overall taxable income), there are also two relevant credits that could save you thousands: the American Opportunity Tax Credit and Lifetime Learning Credit. IRS Pub 970 covers all the details.

2. The Job Hunt

If you were looking for a job in 2013, you may be able to deduct your job-search expenses — and that’s true whether or not you actually found a new job. Expenses can include employment agency fees, costs for printing and mailing resumes, advertising, and travel expenses for interviews.

But the caveats include:

Your job search must be for a position in the same line of work

You can’t deduct expenses if it’s your first job

These expenses are part of your “miscellaneous deductions,” which need to exceed 2% of your adjusted gross income to qualify

Refer to IRS Pub 529 for more details on all of this.

3. Home Ownership

If you bought or owned a home in 2013, you’re probably already aware that you can include your mortgage interest in your itemized deductions. But there are other tax deductions related to home ownership that can add up as well.

You can deduct what you pay in property taxes, interest paid on a home equity loan, any points you paid when you bought your home, premiums paid for Private Mortgage Insurance, and potentially any home improvements made for medical care.

4. Health Costs

Did you have a lot of medical and dental expenses last year? If your medical expenses exceeded 10% of your adjusted gross income for 2013, you can claim a deduction with your itemized deductions. Potential deductible expenses include preventative care, surgeries, doctor’s visits, fertility treatments, psychologist and psychiatrist visits, prescription medication, glasses, contact lenses and even the cost of travel for medical care.

Generally speaking, you cannot deduct non-prescription drugs, your health club dues or anything that was reimbursed by insurance. You also cannot include your health insurance premiums (although self-employed people can deduct their health insurance costs separately). IRS Publication 502 gives the details on itemizing medical expenses.

5. Charitable Donations

If you’re itemizing your deductions on Schedule A, any charitable donations can help lower your tax bill. This includes any cash donations you made throughout 2013 — don’t forget any text message donations (note: Your cell phone bill is a sufficient record as long as it shows who you sent money to, when and for how much).

If you cleaned out your closet and donated items (clothes, furniture, etc.) to Goodwill or another charity, you can deduct the value of these items. Get a receipt in case you’re audited. In addition, if you volunteer for a qualified organization, you can’t deduct the value of your time, but you can deduct travel expenses for getting there (14 cents per mile). Refer to IRS Pub 526 for more details on what can and can’t be deducted.

6. Moving for Your Job

If you landed a new job and moved in 2013, congratulations — your moving expenses may be deductible. And the good news is that you can take this write-off even if you don’t itemize your deductions. Check out IRS Pub 521 to see if you qualify.

In general, your new job location must be at least 50 miles away from your home (or 50 miles farther from your old home than your previous job was from your old home).

7. Energy Efficiency Upgrades

If you made your home more energy efficient last year, you may qualify for a tax credit. For example, you may be able to claim a credit of 10% of the cost for qualified energy efficient insulation, windows, doors and roof for your home, as well as 30% of the cost for installing alternative energy equipment in your home (such as solar hot water heaters or wind turbines).

These credits are both claimed on IRS Form 5695. In addition, for 2013, the purchase of plug-in hybrid-electric and electric vehicles may qualify for a tax credit.

8. Self-Employment Expenses

If you’re self-employed (whether it’s your full-time job or a part-time gig ), you’ve got a grab bag of deductions to pull from. You can deduct expenses from your home office (including pro-rated rent/mortgage, energy bill and insurance for that part of the house).

Don’t forget whichever conferences you attended in 2013, or the books, subscriptions, technology and office supplies you purchased to keep your business going. In addition, you can deduct your health insurance, as well as 50% of your self-employment tax. Visit the IRS’ self-employed tax center to learn more.

9. Children

If you welcomed a new baby in 2013, you are eligible for new tax deductions -– including another exemption (which represents a $3,900 deduction for 2013). Parents that meet certain income requirements can qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit as well as the Child Tax Credit. You may also be able to claim the Child Care Tax Credit for qualified child care costs for any care provided so you could work or look for work.

10. Parents as Dependents

Most people know to claim children as dependents, but fewer are aware that if they cared for an elderly parent, that parent may qualify as a dependent. The same applies to other relatives such as uncles, aunts, grandparents, nieces, nephews, etc. (note that certain relatives do not have to live with you to be considered a dependent).

To claim a dependent on your tax return, you have to meet certain criteria, including that the dependent’s income can’t exceed $3,900 for 2013 and you need to have provided at least half the support for that person. Check out IRS Pub 501 for more details.

Keep in mind that this is all general information to put these valuable deductions on your radar. You’ll still need to research the relevant IRS documents or check with your tax advisor to make sure you qualify for a particular credit or deduction.

Travel Insurance for USA: Top 5 Features to Look For #china

Travel Insurance for USA – Top 5 Features to Look For

Below are some key features you should look for while shopping for International travel insurance plans for travelers visiting USA:

1. Coverage and Type of Plan

Before going ahead with a US travel insurance plan, read its fine print. Make sure you have understood it clause by clause. It is important to find out whether a fixed coverage plan or a comprehensive travel insurance coverage plan would serve your needs better. A comprehensive plan provides better coverage and flexible options. Learn more about the differences between comprehensive and limited coverage plans – types of travel insurance .

2. Provider Network

Most of the travel insurance for USA plans have a list of providers online. Search and try to find out if there are any hospital/services listed close to your home. Often, all popular plans have a greater coverage network of providers all over USA.

3. Renewability

Find out whether the particular plan/policy can be extended before it expires. Also, find out whether the coverage would continue if the plan is renewed. It should not be treated as a new policy because if you are forced to extend your stay in USA in the event of an emergency medical situation during your current policy period, you would need to renew your travel medical insurance policy. If you have purchased a renewable plan, the medical condition that occurred during your initial policy period will not be considered a pre-existing condition, whereas if you purchase a new policy at that time, it will be considered a pre-existing condition. There is no extra cost for the “renewability” feature, so it’s a good idea to purchase a policy that can be renewed.

4. Cost

Cost is an important factor. It usually depends on the traveler’s age, coverage amount limit, and type of plan. You may prefer to choose a US travel insurance plan depending on your pocket size; however, try to make sure you have coverage against all kinds of uncertain risks. Though some people prefer to take the risk of buying a low cost plan, they often have to pay more later. There is nothing wrong with either case.

5. Travel-Related Coverage

Some travel insurance for USA plans, particularly comprehensive travel insurance plans, also cover certain type of travel related coverage, such as baggage loss, and travel-related emergencies. Most plans offer features at no extra cost up to a certain amount.
