Meet the Author

Eric Tyson, MBA, is a best-selling author, syndicated columnist, and lecturer. He works with and teaches people from myriad income levels and backgrounds, so he knows the financial and tax questions and concerns of real folks.
After toiling away for too many years as a management consultant to behemoth financialservice firms, Eric decided to take his knowledge of the industry and commit himself to making personal financial management accessible to all of us. Despite being handicapped by a joint B.S. in Economics and Biology from Yale and an MBA from Stanford, Eric remains a master at “keeping it simple.”
An accomplished freelance personal-finance writer, Eric is the author of other For Dummies national bestsellers on Personal Finance, Investing, Real Estate Investing, and Home Buying.
His work has been critically acclaimed in hundreds of publications and programs including Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and NBC’s Today Show, ABC, CNBC, PBS’s Nightly Business Report, CNN, FOX-TV, CBS national radio, Bloomberg Business Radio, and Business Radio Network.

Margaret Atkins Munro, EA, (who answers to Peggy) is a tax advisor, writer, and lecturer with more than 30 years’ experience in various areas of taxation and finance with a mission in life to make taxes understandable to anyone willing to learn. Her practice is concentrated in the areas of family tax, small business, trusts, estates, and charitable foundations.
She is a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University and has also attended University College Cork (Ireland) and the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies in Toronto, and she feels that her ability to decipher the language in the Internal Revenue Code derives completely from her familiarity with a variety of obscure medieval languages.
Peggy is the author of 529 & Other College Savings Plans For Dummies. She lectures for the IRS annually for its volunteer tax preparer programs and speaks on a variety of tax-related topics.

David J. Silverman, EA, has served on the Advisory Group to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. David has a Certificate in Taxation from New York University and has been in private practice in Manhattan for more than 25 years.
He regularly testifies on tax issues before both the Senate Finance Committee and the House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means. As the result of his suggestions regarding penalty reform that he made while testifying before these committees, legislation was enacted that reduced the amount of penalties that may be assessed in a number of key areas.
David is the author of Battling the IRS, which has received critical acclaim in The New York Times, Money, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous other publications. David has been a contributing editor and wrote a monthly column for Smart Money magazine and is frequently interviewed on national TV and radio as an expert on tax issues.
