OOPS! I DID IT AGAIN
I wrote another tax book - TAX SMARTS: MY BEST ADVICE FROM 45+ YEARS AS A TAX PROFESSIONAL.
As a veteran tax professional who has been preparing 1040s for individuals in all walks of life since 1972 I am often asked by friends, family, clients, readers, and cocktail party guests, “What is your best tax advice?”
As an answer I have written a compilation of my best tax advice to share wisdom accumulated from my 45+ years of preparing 1040s.
This book does not discuss specific deductions (well, I do talk about gambling losses and IRA contributions), credits and “loopholes”, which are revised, changed, deleted and reinstated frequently at the whim of whichever political Party is in power. And it is not specific to 2018 or 2019 or any individual year’s tax returns. It is concerned with universal tax planning and preparation concepts and advice that remain constant year after year.
It also includes the best tax advice of fellow tax bloggers and a listing of online tax planning and preparation resources, a section on “Cool Tools” (online tax planning and preparation resources), a history of taxes in America, and a basic introduction to the federal income tax.
Here is what a couple of fellow tax bloggers have said about the advice in this book:
“The . . . pages of tax advice within the e-book (a pdf document) are full of good, common-sense advice . . . any individual who follows Robert’s advice will be far, far better off than those who don’t.”
Russ Fox, EA of Nevada – author of TAXABLE TALK
“I think your book is great. What I like most is that it is in plain English. You are not trying to appear like a ‘know-it-all’. It is simple enough for non-tax professionals to understand. However, it is informative enough to help tax preparers learn something new.”
Jamaal Solomon, EA of JS Tax Corporation
The cost of this book is only $8.95 sent as a pdf email attachment. A print version sent via postal mail is available for $11.45.
