No matter what time of year it is, small-business owners and operators must keep atop their tax situation.

Well, let's get right to the point. This is a stellar small business survival guide and it deserves a+. I've practiced administrative tax law for nearly two decades now and believe me - I've read seemingly everything that comes out in this area of law.
Tax Savvy is well-indexed, fun to read and covers everything any small businessperson might need to know to. Now even "mom and pop" can acquire the tax savvy necessary to generate more bottom-line dollars.
Here's the reason I recommend it to all my business clients: Following Daily's advice takes all the risk out of tax-planning decisions. After all, he's the man who literally wrote the book (Stand Up to the IRS) about "battling the beast". He knows what's legal, safe and sane.
Benefit example: the very first thing I looked up in Mr. Daily's book was in the RETIREMENT PLANS section. Just one paragraph in that section saved me, personally, a literal TON of dough.
This one's a winner for the little guy . . . no ivory tower legalese or attorney mumbo gumbo - just the facts, mam. Plain and simple. Thanks Nolo! This review refers to the paperback edition.

This book is really complete and will be useful to professional tax preparers and those who already know about tax law. It is definitely not for the beginner (which I am) who wants some basic information. I found two other books that were much more applicable for me -- Minding Her Own Business and Small Time Operator. They talk about taxes in a language I can understand.

Format: Paperback
This guide is different from the many tax guides out there from big names like Ernst & Young, etc. because it is more focussed on small businesses and you get the most relevant information in the most concise fashion. There in lies the limitation of this great book. You may have to refer to the other tax guides if your particular situation is too unique.
But the conciseness and focussed approach was extremely helpful in clarifying a lot of points for me. I had tried reading several of the bigger guides (with three times as many pages as this book) and gotten confused because it was too much information. So when I saw the Nolo guide, I was pleasantly surprised that every topic in the book was relevant to me as a small business owner! It was perfect for my needs. I now started understanding the very same topics I had so much difficulty following in the other books. For example - I was trying to research the differences between S Corporations and LLCs. When I opened this Nolo guide, I went straight to the chapter on LLCs and read the section - Comparing LLCs with Other Entities. In one sentence I knew the difference between these two entities! According to the book, the basic difference being that you can allocate income and expenses disproportionately (to share ownership) in an LLC but not in a S Corporation! Wow! I liked the speed with which I could find this critical piece of information I was researching.
The book is divided into 6 parts - The Basics (Business Income and Tax Deductible Expenses, Recordkeeping and Accounting, etc.), The Form of Your Business (Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships, S Corporations, etc.), Thinking Small (Family Businesses, Microbusinesses and Home-Based Businesses), Fringe Benefits (Retirement Plans etc.

The material contained in Daily's "Stand Up to the IRS" helped to save me [money] this past year! Now, I just got my copy of "Tax Savvy For Small Business" and here's what I like about it:
I'm not a tax professional. I am a small businessman. I can't always call my CPA with every little question. That would cost a fortune. But for instance, this morning I'm looking at Daily's treatment of "independent contractor" status, a problem that keeps coming back to me time and time again. Is this temp secretary an employee or can I save a few bucks and call her an independent contractor? How about the guy I hire to wash the windows out front every week? The cybergeek kid next door who earns a few extra bucks working on my computers for me?
I do not want to bother my CPA with those questions. But I see here in Chapter 5 an easy to read list of factors I should consider in risking it. I like that. It's easy and I need easy. And there's a hundred other subjects simply covered as well.
I don't want to be a tax pro, that's what my CPA is for. I just want to know enough to talk to my CPA and, at the same time, not always need to call him.
One thing that bugs me about a lot of self-help financial books is you can't find what you're looking for. This book has a good index. That's important to save me time and help me find what I'm looking for. Good index. Good book.

This is a great book. It is well organized, well documented, clearly written, and should be used to make your relationship with a tax professional more profitable. However, as mentioned in another review, you should have your tax planning and strategies reviewed by a tax professional (I prefer a CPA) who understands where you are NOW financially and where you are GOING. The purpose of a book like this is not to help you go it alone as some other moron posted, but to help you work WITH your CPA.
