I’m separating from my wife before we can start the divorce next year. This year I’m going to file taxes married filing separately and expect to pay a lot to IRS (salary increased and got allowances for office relocation besides the type of filing). Is anything I can start to do to minimize the tax impact later? E.g maxing out 401k and HSA will help?

Do any of you feel like the focus on mental health in schools is disingenuous and handled poorly?

I also feel as though many schools are doing more damage than good by not follow real evidence-based strategies by clinical psychiatrists to help these children.
