Top Customer Reviews
I am also a fan of her newsletter and website. Both excellent sources of good tips and necessary reminders.
Small Business Taxes 2008 disappointed me in a way that this book does not seem to contain any more information than the Small Business section of its big sibling - which makes sense if you compare the number and size of their pages!.. There were a few places where I stumbled doing our 2007 return. To give you an example, one of them was about home office and whether you can elect to keep your entire mortgage and real estate taxes deduction all in your personal itemized deductions or you really must put the home office percentage into your business taxes (Schedule C). To my disappointment, this, as well as a few other similar "finer" points, was not covered in the book. I finally found the answer in the official IRS publication - very clearly, it was saying that no, I can't, that percentage *must* go into Schedule C.
So here we are. As much as I love JK Lasser tax books, I found that I seldom needed to use any external help outside TurboTax - which now has excellent Small Business help menu, including some tax attorney's (sorry, forgot the guy's name) free, and very nicely written, whole book. And when I do need that extra help, JK Lasser books, sadly, won't do. The ultimate resource remain those boring original IRS publications.
In the spirit of not inflating the grade, I am giving 3 stars here.
On Jan.03, 2014 this book reached me from USA to CANADA for 2 weeks.
I am one new foreign-owner of US Corporation and this book showed me a COMPLETE GUIDE to small biz taxes 2014:-)
When I use the software "TurboTax Business Fed + Efile 2013", this book will be a great support to complete my corporate tax preparation. I appreciate the author BARBARA WELTMAN.
