An well written, extremely thorough and highly useful tax book. Over the course of the past two weeks I've read every page and have been amazed at the things I've learned....if only I'd known about some of these deductions sooner! Mr. Fishman makes a daunting an often dry subject very easy to understand. He writes in simple language and gives lots of good example situations. The book is divided into chapters by topic (travel, vehicle, home office, etc.) so its easy to get right to the info you need. When I met with my tax preparer she was surprised and impressed at how knowledgeable I was about my deductions. This book is a must have for anyone who is self-employed or runs a small business.

This book was helpful in listing many deductions that small businesses need to use when filing their taxes. It's easy to use, and a great quick reference.
