Have You Made These Mistakes On Your Income Taxes?

As we all know it's that time of year again when we are busily gathering documents in order to file our taxes.  Some of us are dreading the task while others are eager to get their taxes filed so they can receive their refund check.  Many homeowners know the tax benefits from simply owning their own home and while many of us take those advantages year after year, sometimes we make mistakes. Not a good thing to do on your taxes!
