It's that time of year again to put a plan in place for tax season

Email

The income tax filing deadline is still a long way off but it's not too soon to start planning, say financial experts.

Some tax breaks are still available -- for example, an energy tax credit of up to $500 for energy-efficient doors, windows and similar items purchased before Dec. 31.

There's still time to make tax-deductible charitable donations before the end of the year.
