HASH(0xa07cbedc) out of 5 stars A book you must buy! Nov. 25 2005
By Andrew Huynh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recommend this book to individuals who run a small business or plan to start a small business.

This is a great book that goes through some tax fundamentals that all small businesses should know. Fredrick Daily has a great talent with translating complicated tax issues into plain English. The book goes through fundamentals areas such as tax basics, deductions, C and S corporations, fringe benefits, and etc.

At the very least, this book has prompted a look back at how my small business' tax structure is set up.

For those who care to save time and money, this is the book for you.

HASH(0xa07cbb64) out of 5 stars Excellent Planning Suggestions in a Clear & Concise Presentation Dec 5 2007
By William M. Burbank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a tax attorney I find this book, a great resource. My practice is very specialized and when I need an overview of areas outside of my specialty, I find Frederick W. Daily's books to be a great first stop. Taxation of business entities (not my specialty)is arguably the most complex area of the Internal Revenue Code, This book makes these complex principals not only easy to understand, but offers invaluable tax strategies to save big tax $$$$. On more than one occasion I have loaned copies of this book to clients because it does a better job giving an overview of complex concepts in a clear and concise way.

HASH(0xa07d20fc) out of 5 stars Great Overview Book March 16 2005
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Taxes related to a small business are complex and even a little bewildering if you haven't gotten into them before. But as this book says, they're not rocket science difficult.

Here in one book is a general introduction to the major business taxes that we all have to face. In addition there are comments based on experience such as: "Few people ever file form 5213 (Election to Postpone Determination that Activity is for Profit), and for good reason. It draws the IRS's attention and may invite an audit." This kind of advice is hard to find in real life, but here the author has enough experience in the area to make such statements.

Most of the book is on the standard kinds of accounting records you'll need to keep, the limits and philosophies that the IRS follows, etc.

HASH(0xa0e9a090) out of 5 stars Very Helpful, With Full Size Forms/Examples, Useful Jan. 27 2011
By Elisa 20 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I'm a fan of NOLO books and this is no exception. Frederick Daily takes the dull-but-important subject and presents it in a clear, organized way with numerous examples, explanations and sample forms. The large size of the book (about 8 1/2" x 12") allows generous space for information which, in turn, makes it easier to read and think about.

Beyond some things you would obviously expect--how to choose deductions and write of long-term assets-it goes into depth on the structuring of your business (LLC, C-Corporation, Sole Proprietorship, etc) and how they actually work. I wish I had read this section BEFORE setting up my business as a Sole Proprietorship.

Most of the book is a thoughtful, thought-provoking exploration of the specific pros and cons of starting a business--then also what happens when you decide to sell it, what happens if you're audited by the IRS, and so on.

I have a small business and found this extremely useful. But it would have been even better to read this book BEFORE starting your business. There's so much to know about with any business, but "follow the money" is key and knowing what you're getting into beforehand is just...wise. This is a great book to help small businesses through that process.

HASH(0xa0aa5ae0) out of 5 stars Best business tax guide on the market... June 8 2008
By the freelance writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I walked into my local library one day looking for something easy-to-read concerning taxes. Mr. Daily's book title quickly captured my attention. I not only couldn't put the book down, I later checked it out of the library that day and read the first two chapters that night.

A week later after reading two additional chapters, I bought the book online. "It was that good." Simple as that! It made tax law come alive to me and I was able to understand taxes much more clearly.

Tax Attorney Frederick W. Daily's book, "Tax Savvy for Small Business," in my professional opinion, would be considered 'required reading' for anyone who prepares returns or represents taxpayers before the IRS, as I soon will be doing as an Enrolled Agent (EA). CPAs and lawyers are licensed by the individuals states. EAs on the other hand, are nationally licensed.

"This book IS... my study guide and bible" (if you will) in addition to... my study materials in preparation for the Enrolled Agent (EA) exam.
