Taxes For Dummies 2005 cuts that down to size and helps you discover how the tax system works and how to legally make it work for you. Legally is a key word. Written by Eric Tyson, MBA, financial counselor, syndicated columnist, and bestselling author, and David J. Silverman, EA, tax advisor, it shows you how, through careful planning, you can minimize your taxes and still sleep at night. Organized and indexed so you can find what you need and ignore the rest, there is practical information about:

  • Recent changes even experienced filers need to know about
  • Tax return preparation—using resources, software, digital filing, and/or getting professional help
  • Graduating from the shoebox system to organized recordkeeping
  • The basics—filing status, exemptions, when to file, and more
  • The most common forms and schedules, including 1040EZ, 1040A, 1040, and Schedules A, B, C, D, E, and F (explained step-by-step and line-by-line)
  • Income and adjustments to it
  • Estimated taxes

That’s the information most people desperately need on April 14th. But the most valuable information is on tax planning—not tax filing. No matter what bracket you’re in, this is the part you shouldn’t ignore. It includes guidelines and advice on:

  • Reducing taxes with retirement planning
  • Small business tax planning
  • Investment and taxes, including some types of tax-favored investments to avoid
  • Real estate taxes, including information on buying a home, getting a mortgage, and selling a home
  • Kids and taxes, including a caution about education savings accounts
  • Estate planning (after all, with your new tax expertise, you may someday have an estate)

Just in case, there’s also information on correcting mistakes (yours or the IRS’s) and avoiding or surviving the dreaded audit. With Taxes for Dummies 2005, you’re prepared. It’s one of the least-taxing ways to get the information you need to file and to minimize your taxes.

Review:

Taxes for Dummies, 1999 Edition, by Eric Tyson and David J. Silverman, is another title in the bestselling For Dummies series, for which Tyson has authored four other books, including Personal Finance for Dummies and Investing for Dummies. Accurate and reliable in its lighthearted presentation, Tyson and Silverman's book includes tax-planning tips that will help you save money beyond April 15. The book should be just right for the average taxpayer who is looking for clear and unencumbered advice for meeting his or her annual obligation to Uncle Sam. However, it may lack for those wanting a more in-depth guide on complex topics, such as running a small business from home.

From the Publisher:

Discover how to:

* Overcome tax anxiety * Prepare your return, line-by-line * Take all the deductions you're allowed * Avoid an audit * Get answers to frequently asked questions * Reduce your taxes in 2001 and beyond
