Taxes are one thing in life that never go away, and any savings are often welcome, especially considering how quickly they add up. Many don't realize how much tax they're paying due in part to confusing bills and tax laws. I've compiled some common taxes, their true costs and some ways you can save to try and clear up some of the confusion. Some options are free and some aren't -- usage and cost-effectiveness really depends on your situation. I wanted to include them since they may be worth considering.
