I always buy this guide for tax season. It isn't just an expansion of Publication 17 as some other guides have been. It is clear, comprehensive and offers many tips and clarifying explanations. It is reasonably priced and I would strongly recommend it. I only wish there were comparable editions for C Corps, S Corps and partnerships. These would make an inexpensive solid working library.

This is essentially Publication 17 with E & Y narrative. It does not cover lower end returns very well (not a lot of earned income credit tax returns roll in to E & Y offices), but what it covers it covers very well.

JK Lasser books are by far the best I have found in the area of taxation for the tax preparer.

This is not a bad book, but JK Lasser is MUCH better!

I have purchased the Tax Guide 2011 and found that JK Laser's books are better. The biggest problem is that the deduction for line 35 of the 1040 tax form is ignored. It is the Domestic Production Activity Deduction. (IRS code section 199, for the E&Y partners.)It is a free deduction based on 9% of a base amount. It applies to contractors, software and film makers, Starbucks Coffee stores, oil production and others. JK Laser covers this deduction; Ernst & Young does not. (Unless one of the tax partners actually review this publication and included it in the 2012 Tax Guide, I would pass on this.)

Hopefully, in the future, some partner will look at line 35 of the 1040, or form 8903 to see the missed deductions. Even the IRS 1040 general instructions include information on this deduction.

If you need something indepth, the this tax guide is exceptional and very reasonably priced. It is not necessarily easy to find the topic you are looking for unless you are well versed in tax. That said, it is a good resource especially for some more complicated matters that require citing.

If you need faster resourcing, this might not be the guide for you. Good source reference for real property, contracts and straddles, and business matters as they relate back to the 1040.

I don't think this book necessarily helped explain anything about taxes to me. It was mostly cut and pastes from the IRS pubs. What this book was helpful for was putting all the necessary IRS pub snippets in one place with easy references. I would have preferred a little more layman's terms interpretations, so next year I'll look for something different.
