« on: June 30, 2015, 12:03:25 PM »
The MadFIentist has a number of topics on tax optimization and (legal) avoidance/reduction.

His "archives" include a section called "Tax Avoidance" with the following topics (as of June 2015, he adds more all the time):
Retire Even Earlier Without Earning More or Spending Less
Traditional IRA vs. Roth IRA The Final Battle
The Ultimate Retirement Account
Lab Rat and Assumptions
Tax-Loss Harvesting
Tax-Gain Harvesting
Triple Value of Income
How to Hack Your HSA
Roth IRA Horse Race
After-Tax Contributions and a Surprise Gift from the IRS

They are well worth checking out!
