Tax/Personal Finance

A realistic look at some of the best tax-saving opportunities available in a down market

The challenges of today's economic environment go far beyond a volatile stock market. Things have changed dramatically in the worlds of housing, credit, and employment as well. And while these events will undoubtedly affect us, there are numerous tax-related and financial solutions that can help you weather this economic storm.

Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice, J.K. Lasser's Guide for Tough Times details the essential strategies that will see you through this current market, and help you handle several key aspects of your personal and financial life, including:

  • Investing for today's market by going for yield and protecting your retirement savings

  • Handling homeowner issues such as dealing with tapped out home equity and sales at a loss

  • Managing your everyday needs by stretching the dollar and tackling credit card debt

  • Reaching educational goals with no/low cost alternatives, scholarships, and IRAs

  • Recovering from losing a job, and making the most of tax rules for severance packages, unemployment benefits, and job-seeking expenses

  • And much more

J.K. Lasser's Guide for Tough Times will also help you rediscover several programs and regulations that have been in place for years, but were overlooked during the great bull market. And it will introduce you to various steps the government is taking—including credits for small businesses, mortgage relief, stimulus packages, and more—to deal with an economic downturn.

While you may be concerned about the current state of the economy, there are things you can do to improve your situation, and J.K. Lasser's Guide for Tough Times will show you exactly what they are.

Format: Paperback
I borrowed this from the library and I'm hooked with it now that I wanted my own copy. It shows charts that you can use on evaluating your decision regarding early retirement vs. remaining on the job. It covers a lot of topic perfect for this economic down-turn.
