How do you decrease your taxable income to stay on certain bracket? 401k, What’s else?

HSA and IRA are options.

IRA traditional or Roth?

Traditional, if you want to reduce taxable income. Roth IRA and 401k don’t reduce income now but are tax free later

529, but only on state level and selected states. funnel some money to your business, even a small one and tag as biz expense. charitable contributions.

HSA, Limited FSA

Capital losses can deduct up to $3k from income I believe

@QT1 does RH send those capital loss information?

Im afraid i dont use RH!

Besides all the pre-tax accounts, everything on a Schedule A will reduce taxable income. But why do you care what bracket you're in? Tax brackets are marginal, so you pay the higher tax rate only on income within that bracket.
