Not that you would do any of these, but you can relate them to the Three Stooges: they’re funny, fun, and always put smiles to your faces; but when you think about them, the first thought is, “Wow, really?”

These are three tax breaks that you might consider but not always go for –
Tax Break 1
It’s hard to understand why you actually get a tax break just from donating stuff, but you do. Anything with value that you own — be it a car, stereo, even a house — can be deducted from your taxes if you donate it to an individual or company. The question is this — do you want to do that?
Tax Break 2
Buy a House
It’s amazing to know that owning a house actually benefits your taxes — simply because owning a house stimulates the economy, particularly the housing industry. However, it’s such a big responsibility to own a house — why not rent? So much simpler!
Tax Break 3
Adopt a Child
That may be the most outrageous one…. The situation, of course, has to be right for you! Not everyone wants a child in that manner, but if you happen to want a tax break and a child at the same time, maybe you’d consider adoption, thanks to the adoption tax credit.
We think so. But that’s America for you: the Land of “Outrageous Opportunity.” A land where you can basically get money from nothing!
