Anvil Tax Guide: An Ex-IRS Auditor's Tips to Organizing Taxes Paperback – November 18, 2014
About the Author
David B. Tuck earned a bachelor of business administration with an accounting emphasis from Boise State University. Ambitious and outgoing, he was elected student body senator for the College of Business and Economics, and was quickly promoted to senate pro tempore for the whole student body government. While he was a student he was hired by the Idaho Department of Revenue for an audit internship. To spice up life and take a break from studying during his summer breaks, David worked as a professional river guide on the Snake, Salam, and Payettes Rivers in Idaho. It is here that he earned the nickname Salsa, because he delivered a level of experience suited to his clients’ tastes, preferences, and risk tolerance. Some patrons liked it hot while others wanted it really mild. He still applies this same kind of “catering” to his tax clients. David always loved entrepreneurship and wanted to continue his life’s education and skill development beyond college. He went to work for the IRS, starting in Boise as office auditor. Later he transferred to Portland, Oregon, as a field auditor before firing his boss to start Anvil Tax, Inc. He received his designation as an enrolled agent from the IRS and designation as a licensed tax consultant from Oregon. The IRS gave him important foundations, and he was able to increase his skills by joining Certified Tax Coaches. He lives in Portland with his wife, Hannah, and have one biological son; they are state certified foster parents. When people ask him how many kids they have, sometimes he pauses to think about how many are under his roof at the time. David is passionate about helping families reunite. He expects amazing things to happen and is enjoying living life to the fullest.

Had this book been advertised as a simple and easy introduction into basic self employment tax law, then I'd rate it a 4. Given that it isn't and I gained nothing from it, while I was going to leave a 1, I feel that's perhaps a tad unfair given that this book is good for someone who knows nothing or very little about taxes. Perhaps part of my issue is that I'm certain there are tax advantages that I don't know about, and but I didn't find any in here. So this review is for those out there like me, who already have a good handle on taxes but know there's more to learn, I'm sure there is, but it's not here.
The topics are laid out in a logical order, and there are plenty of tables and lists to help you figure out your tax return. It even kind of acts like a workbook, so that you can prepare your taxes in an organized way.
I highly recommend this book over any other I've seen on the subject.
This is not the case with this book. You will find the information in the Anvil Tax Guide useful whether you are trying to do your own taxes and bookkeeping or just trying to get yourself a bit more financially competent.
