    Highly Recommended Tax Tool!

    I purchased this book from B&N as an e-book which is concvenient for mobiity. The book is written and presented in a simple to read layout. One hiccup though, I wish that this book could have the ability to be updated online for the 2012 tax year updates as opposed to the recommended "go to the E&Y website to read the updates." I hope that B&N can make this possible to update or incorporate the updates to this e-book directly.
