This book is well worth the 12 or so dollars you spend, you will recoup it so quickly with all the deductions you were previously unaware you were entitled to. And it's so easy to understand.

1,0001 deductions? I'm sure someone was using fuzzy accounting when summing up that total. I purchased this book to help me plan for my taxes for next year. I had already done some investigating online so I was decently familiar with all the available deductions. I was hoping that this book would show a deduction that I didn't know I qualified for or something that wasn't being used. It didn't. In fact, all of the information in this book can be found on the web for free. In fact, if you want all the details on a certain deduction (exclusions, etc), you have to look it up online anyway.

Now, that's not to say you don't need this book. I have given it a neutral rating because the information it does provide is essential to determine whether you qualify for the deductions or not. The information is all in one place instead of looking it up piecemeal through countless websites. It describes the tests involved to determine if you qualify for the deduction. It shows MAGI phase-outs that are not always shown on some websites. This would have helped me had I not found out the hard way that some credits and deductions are now phasing out in much lower income brackets than anticipated. It also describes the percentages and gives good examples on how to claim the deductions it covers. Also, the advice on retirement accounts is top-notch. You can find it elsewhere but it is described nicely in this book. I'm not sure about the business section since it doesn't pertain to me. In fact, a lot of this book does not pertain to most people in the audience that it is geared for.

So, if you're looking for a good reference with some solid examples and phase-outs of the current tax deductions this book is for you.

Other than Warren Buffett who wants to pay more in taxes than they have to. Barbara Weltman does a masterful job in showing every legitimate tax deduction and tax break available to you. The Federal Tax Code is over 70,000 pages and Barbara distills the salient topics into understandable practical suggestions. Reading this book will put you on the path to tax freedom.
