Filing your personal taxes can be easier than it used to be. Unfortunately, what you could claim last year may not be the same this year. I have compiled a list of the common personal tax laws that have changed since last tax season on my website. I have also provided several tips that can help you get the biggest return possible without manipulating your tax forms. You can learn how to get the biggest return while following the IRS guidelines so you do not have to worry about tax audits or getting a penalty letter a few years after getting your check.
Tinting your car's windshield can make it more pleasant to drive. Not only does the tint provide privacy, it also blocks sunlight so that your car has a cooler interior. Generally, a professional tint job is preferable over DIY installation, since professionals have the skills and tools to prevent bubbling and other common tint problems. Know your options in tint before you schedule an appointment, so you can find the installer that provides the type of tinting you want. This guide can help.
This is the most basic option from professionals and also what is included in DIY kits. The film consists of a dye trapped between the adhesive backing and top polyester coating on the film. Dyed films aren't reflective, so they look darker than other options. It also reduces glare from outside lights. Unfortunately, it is also the most prone to bubbling, peeling, and color fade. Choose this option when you have a garage to park in to prolong the life of the film, and if you prefer a low-cost film at the darkest legal shade.
There are two options when it comes to metallic film – sputtered or full metal. Sputtered metal films are mixed with dye so that the end result has the attractive color of dyed film but the benefits of metal. Full metal options have a mirrored look, which makes them not as popular as other options. Both types are excellent at blocking heat and UV radiation, and they are durable and don't fade or lose color. They are also more costly and can block radio waves and signals, which means your radio, GPS unit, or phone may not work inside the car. These issues are more likely with full metal than sputtered varieties. Choose this option if you want a long-lasting tint that resists fading, or if you like the look of the metallic option.
This type of auto window tinting consists of a ceramic layer bonded between the adhesive and top coat. They block the most light and reduce glare well. They also come in a range of tints so you can get just what you want. Even better, they resist scratches and are long lasting. The main issue with ceramic tint is that it is a costly option compared to the other two. Choose ceramic if you need a durable and long lasting tint, and if cost isn't a barrier.
