My wife decided to go into business for herself recently, and I think this book will do some good as it should be able to keep her from having to come to me every five seconds. I have an older version of this as well as one other by Barbara Weltman, and they were both very informative and easy to get through. If you own a small business, or would like to, I highly recommend reading this book. You will be glad you did.

Tons of pages, but needs supplements to make it more understandable. I thought this would help get a few things I might be missing. Just made things more confusing for the most part. Got another $38.00 figured out, so I guess it was worth while since it made the book free and then some?

My father recommended this book when my husband opened his own business. The book answers so many questions that I had as far as tax deductions, filing receipts, tax rules, etc. It was a tremendous help to me in organizing my receipts for my tax preparer.
