Light bulb moment: Wheelwright's stress on the concept that the bulk of the tax code is there to provide incentives for doing one thing or another, and that you can be a lot wealthier by choosing to actively participate in ways the tax system rewards. I really hadn't thought about it in that particular way, but he's spot on. His corollary -- finding a tax accountant who can prospectively guide you into thinking through ideas in this tax-efficient way is also a really good one. I've spent a lot of time learning about my taxes, but this new vantage point has given me a lot of really good ideas that I'll be working on over the next few years, and that will certainly influence some restructuring of my business. (The concept of having one type of entity -- like an S corp -- being a member of another -- like an LLC -- in order to put activities and expenditures in the most helpful place was really illuminating.)

However, the continued statements that anything can be deducted if you just handle it the right way are disingenuous, and some people may try to stretch and get into completely indefensible situations based on his broad and often repeated statement. Everything is not potentially deductible. It is also a very padded book, with the author stretching to increase the word count to make it "book length".

Still it is a helpful book if the ideas are taken with a grain of salt, and it has really helped me think about taxes in a different way.

There is so much I could say about Tom Wheelwright's book and still not do it justice. So many of us "common folk" have grown up fearing the tax code because it seems more incomprehensible and scary. Often, the tax collector carries the same ominous aura of dread associated with the boogie man!

But, Tom is extremely intelligent, talented and passionate. And, as we all know, passion drives excellence. Tom's incredibly thorough understanding of taxes from concept to inception makes his insights incredibly valuable. The key value is that he can accurately demystify taxes for nearly everyone to understand. His explanations are easy to follow and the book covers many aspects of taxes to, not only apply to whatever the reader's current financial situation is, but it also explains the simple concepts available to all people to move forward to a brighter financial future. It is very clear that this book is intended for anyone with an open mind to looking at taxes differently and using that knowledge to their own advantage.

This book takes the fear out of being taxed. It brings understanding of how the tax system works and how it can work to the taxpayer's advantage. I bought this book the first day it became available on Amazon and I read it all the way through in 2 days and will keep re-reading it for many years. I even bought a copy and gave it to my tax preparer saying, "Read this. This is how I want to formulate my tax strategies from now on. Let me know if you can keep up."

If you are a fan (or student) of the "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" series, and understand those basic principles, but may feel as if you are still missing a piece of the puzzle toward building wealth----then you must read this book. This book will fill that void.

This book ties all the Rich Dad principles together and demonstrates how and why they work to build vast wealth over a lifetime---and beyond---for generations to come. I truly understand now why the old adage of "the rich just keep getting richer" is so true: the tax code.

However, be warned that this book may seem somewhat controversial to some due to its right-wing political overtones. I can see how those from the left may get offended by what this book teaches: using the tax code to pay very little tax; or legally paying no taxes while having other people pay them for you.

This book may also be offensive to some who may experience an "Ah-ha!" moment when they realize how their own political leaders use the tax code to become very, very wealthy. Meanwhile those leaders hypocritically campaign that they are "working for the little guy" while surreptitiously robbing their own constituency though the legal use of the tax code. This reality is rife with irony.

I don't think Wheelwright had the intention for this book to be confrontational. However, the truth hurts, and this book demonstrates the truth of why "the rich" get rich----and stay rich.

This was a disappointing read. some annoying aspects from this book are: 1) almost every page mentions that you need to hire a tax professional, 2) Wheelwright tried to make this an international book and constantly makes references to IRS equivalents in other countries that do not apply to the US, 3) most tax advice is geared for business owners and real estate speculators, 4) Wheelwright dismisses and discourages 401k's and IRA's as well as any type of securities investments such as mutual funds and barely even mentions them. But I suppose this is to be expected from the rich dad series. And the fact that this was intended to be an international book was a bad idea because the only high level concept that applies worldwide is that everybody wants to minimize their taxes. I am sure that the international community will not benefit from any real tax advice from this book, but to be fair, nobody in the US will benefit either.
A more appropriate book title should be: "Reasons why business owners should hire me (tax professionals)"
