Kelly has a knack for putting complex subjects into plain English. In addition, her writing style is very informal and entertaining, replete with stories about her own experiences as the mother of three young children. For less than the price of most kids' meals at a fast food restaurant, you'll get information that may save you some serious $$ on your next income tax return.
It's not possible to know everything. Heck, even the IRS doesn't know all the law. (I have has occasion to fight them....and sort of win) Kelly's guide offers an easy read and provides practicle answers to complex questions. It's not a substitute for sound tax advice, however it is necessary start in your tax conversation with your tax professional.
I am not a tax professional, but I know people who are.
