Editorial Reviews

About the Author

S. Kay Bell has been writing about taxes for a decade, but following the subject–as a taxpayer, journalist, Congressional staff member, and government relations specialist–for most of her journalism career. After two decades in Washington, DC, including stints on Capitol Hill and with two major multinational corporations, she helped launch the tax channel at the popular personal finance website, Bankrate.com. She still writes for Bankrate, including the site’s tax blog, Eye on the IRS.

 

In addition, Bell posts daily at her own personal finance blog, Don’t Mess with Taxes, where The Wall Street Journal praised her ability to effectively put her personal finance advice in a social or historical context. Her writing also appears in numerous mass-circulation publications and websites, including USAToday.com, TheStreet.com, MarketWatch.com, and AOL.com, and she is regularly interviewed by media outlets ranging from National Public Radio’s “Marketplace” to Yahoo’s “Generation Debt.”

I'm a native Texan who finally made it back home to the Lone Star State on Cinco de Mayo 2005 after way too many years as a Texpatriate.

This book is mostly basic information about tax, IRS, and related topics. I picked this up free and will keep it as a handy reference. A good overview for filing your tax documents, and for those going through an audit. Some repetitive sentences in the kindle version - maybe headers that are not formatted right.

Format: Paperback
In 52 concise and engaging chapters, author S. Kay Bell covers the basics of federal taxes and how to plan your financial decisions to take advantage of various tax breaks. Unlike a detailed instructional manual, "The Truth about Paying Fewer Taxes," functions more like a road map, guiding you to tax-saving ideas, explaining often complex tax rules.

"In a world that permits just about anybody to publish his or her assertions about any topic, it's not surprising that we've been bombarded with all sorts of statements concerning taxes and taxation, some accurate and some misleading or downright false. In a world drowning in information, it might seem surprising that many people don't know or understand all that they need to grasp with respect to taxes. In many instances, these folks end up paying more in taxes than they are required to pay.

So it's fortunate for these people that S. Kay Bell, who blogs at Don't Mess With Taxes, and who also is a member of the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel, has come out with a book called, "The Truth About Paying Fewer Taxes."

"The Truth About Paying Fewer Taxes" is not for the tax professional. Anyone claiming to be a tax professional who does not know what Kay explains in the book ought not be claiming that distinction. On the other hand, people who enter into the tax return preparation field when January rolls around, and who haven't been keeping on top of tax law changes, should pick up this book and read. So, too, should people who do their own tax returns and, yes, they exist.

The book's price would pay for several cups of expensive coffee. In other words, for what it delivers, it's a bargain."
