Format: Paperback
This is probably the best book out there for the tax treatment of the following investment topics: stocks, options, short sales, wash sales, mutual funds, and dividends. I keep this book next to my computer and refer to it often. It has many examples. It even covers more advanced topics such as constructive sales and straddles. It has sections on the taxation of traders, gifts, accounts for minors, and AMT. It covers all of these topics accurately and thoroughly, while still being very readable for the non-tax professional. The author points out any grey areas of the tax law. This book isn't perfect (for example, in the section on estimated taxes, it doesn't mention form 2210 or what to do if unexpected income comes late in the year), but it is still very good.

Format: Paperback
Kaye Thomas' Capital Gains, Minimal Taxes: The Essential Guide For Investors And Traders is a "plain language" guide to stocks, mutual funds, options, and tax strategies for maximizing returns and minimizing tax liabilities. Complete, authoritative, practical, "user friendly", this guide is ideal for those new to investment portfolio management and will prove both practical and invaluable in creating a personal financial investment plan with allied strategies. Indeed, Capital Gains, Minimal Taxes has much of value to offer even experienced investors with respect to tax rules for short sales, stock options, and "straddles". Highly recommended reading for sensible small investor strategic financial and investment planning.

Format: Paperback
It is very clear and accurate in explaining the rules. It is not vey clear in certain chapters like Alternative Minimum Tax, or quantifying, even approximately, who can pass the trading activity test.
It would have been very useful to give a definition of each rule, in a few lines, so the reader does not have to go back and read an entire chapter just to refresh his/her memory about a rule.

I didn't see the one thing I was looking for, the thought about putting an option on an owned stock and its effect on short term-long term holding status.
