If you aren't living under a rock then you know that we are officially in a recession. People are tightening their belts, home sales are tanking, and it's all the news can talk about because apparently is the only interesting thing happening at the moment (said sarcastically).

How will this affect your taxes next year you ask? Excellent question! The Inflation Reduction Act was recently passed and there are quite a few inflation adjustments for over 60 tax provisions in the plan. Here are a few that will directly affect your taxes for tax year 2023.
