By D. G. Moran on June 8 2004
Format: Hardcover
This has to be one of the worst textbooks I've encountered:
- Poorly organized
- Poorly written
- The problems have little correlation to the content of the chapters.
- Very few graphics, although some of the graphics included are quite good, just not nearly enough.
- This book is written for savants that confuse memorization with learning.
- You're probably stuck with this text; urge your professors and departments to abandon this book. Your time is worth something!

This book was required by my professor so I had to buy it. It is probably one of the worst textbooks I have ever used. I found the writing poorly phrased and there were a few inconsistencies with the Code. (constructive receipt, etc)

Talk your teacher out of this book!!! Feb. 4 2005
By Kellie White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If your course requires this book, like mine did, go to the administrator of the school if you have to but talk them out of it.

The book frequently references other later chapters.

The book uses out of date tax forms, when the current years are available for free on irs.gov!

The book 'shortens' tables by grouping together years that are not really at the same rate, when the correct tables are available for free on irs.gov! It only warns you about this once in chapter 8, despite doing so all thru the book.

It spends way too much time on tax laws from prior years, and decades.

The quiz that the book provides for use with the chapters is bad!

It does not take into accout §167(k) which, admittedly only apply to 2003 and 2004, but those are the years given on the test.

It allocates on a 365 day basis for the leap year 2004 when the book (5 times!) told you to use 366 days if it is a leap year.

Some of the questions do not provide enough information to determine the correct answer.

There are also questions about items not mentioned in the book at all.

Not even the woman in class who DID taxes liked this book. It is difficult to imagine anyone it would be good for, unless maybe you needed to figure out how to depreciate a building you purchased in 1986.

Great Book! June 12 2006
By Nathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book to learn taxation from. I used West taxation books before going on to a career at a big 4 accounting firm!

As far as the previous reviewer, who is obsessed with out of date charts and tax forms....she/he doesn't really understand taxation. Tax codes change year in and out. When these books are published they go with the latest possible information.

Besides, if your goal is simply to learn the basics of preparing taxes, why is it so necessary to have all the current years tax code info? Especially when the tax code doesn't "usually" change a whole lot from year to year.

Anyways, I have checked out other tax textbooks, and this is the one I'd recommend (being someone with SOME experience in this field)

Confused June 24 2007
By Alexis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have to purchase this book for class and am a bit reluctant after reading the reviews. It seems as though the last reviewer knows or works for Hoffman. I am paying over $150 for a book and I therefore want up-to-date, well organized and well written information.
