    EXCELLENT BOOK

    I took an income tax class at a college and the teacher who works for the IRS recommended this book. It is a great book, very helpful, easy to read and understand. Everyone can learn how to do their tax returns if they read this book, or at least you can ask your tax preparer the right questions and make sure there are no mistakes. People don't realize that preparer's make a lot of mistakes.

    The BEST tax prep book available!

    I purchased this book as a study aid for an Income Tax Accounting class. I have to say, this book is outstanding! Every section cuts right through the jargon and complexity of the tax regulations. This book really makes preparing your income taxes a breeze. I was also impressed by the ideas in the book for preparing for the upcoming 2005 tax year; there are some really great tax saving tips.
