  1. Did you obtain your qualified health-care coverage last year? As part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), everyone is required to sign up for health-care coverage or face a penalty.
  2. Standard mileage rate for 2014 was 56 cents per mile. Expect that to increase in 2015. Be diligent about logging them because those miles add up.
  3. The limits changed for retirement contributions in 2014. More details.
