Forget all that blather about how much kids cost to raise. Start thinking about it the other way. The time to start making money off the little nits is NOW!

Starting with this year's taxes. Turbo Tax, the popular tax time software, is sponsoring America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction.

All you have to do is send in a photo of your newborn baby (born between 12/01/07 and 12/31/07) and hope he or she is as adorable as you think she is. The winner will receive the title of America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Reduction and a $5,000 U.S. Savings Bond (and perhaps the launch of a lucrative modeling career.)

You're not sleeping these days anyway, are you? Get the camera and start snapping away. The contest started Dec. 17 and runs through Jan. 9, 2008.

Amending Your Income Tax Return

What if you've sent in your income tax return for a previous year and then discover you made a mistake? You can make things right by filing an amended tax return. And, don't think an amended return will automatically cost you money; it's perfectly okay to change a return to capture a tax break you missed the first time around.

How to File Taxes with IRS Form 1099-MISC

If you receive tax form 1099-MISC for services you provide to a client as an independent contractor and the annual payments you receive total $400 or more, you'll need to file your taxes a little differently than a taxpayer who only receives regular employment income reported on a W-2.

What If I Did Not File My State Taxes?

At the time of this writing, the only states that do not charge a state income tax are Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. If you live or earn money in one of the other 41 states or the District of Columbia, you may need to file a state income tax return by April 15. It is a separate and independent requirement from filing your federal tax return and failure to file it on time may result in interest and penalty charges.
