    This is simply the best tax guide hands down! You can pay more for other guides, but, why? Everything you need is in this book. If you still have questions after researching a subject in the book, you can go to their website for more information and the specific IRS forms you need to read or use. In fact, when I studied to be a California tax professional this was the book used by my state certified school! Even though I prepare taxes just for family members and use an excellent tax program, I still purchase a new guide every year. Things change, new laws, new situations and having this guide and a good computer program are all you'll ever need. Actually, that combo is probably more than most people even need.
