I found this "guide" a rewrite of exactly what the IRS tells you in its publications. There really is no help with what to put in various locations on the 1120S especially if you need to do the L or M-1 schedule or even the M-2. I won't be getting this "help" again. The IRS is more useful. And I haven't found any software that helps either. Unless you can find a very good accountant (most don't know how to do these forms either) you just have to pray that the IRS will eventually update their publications and do the filing yourself.

Every November I begin looking for Barbara Weltman's "Small Business Taxes" updated each year for the last 15 years. The 2013 edition is the best ever, as new tax changes and their business applications are discussed---and numerous impending revisions are noted and will be made available as they become tax guidelines.
I know that the $19.95 investment (maximum) I make each year, will positively generate the best Return on Investment I make for my Small Business.
My favorite way to read the book's 610 pages is to just open the book to any page and learn some new information that I can share with my Small Business Community. I hope that this year, Barbara will again share her tax expertise in my "live streaming" and YouTube videos I create each day.
By the way, my initial YouTube for the 2013 edition can be found at [...]
Thank you Barbara for your important tax guidance...
