Readable and Helpful,
This review is from: Taxes For Canadians For Dummies 2003 Edition (Paperback)**NOTE: This review is in reference to the U.S. edition of this book, but was mistakenly posted for the Canadian editiion. **
I purchased this book because I was using TaxCut Standard, which is not very helpful at times, and I got stuck on a particular form. This book helped me to understand the Individual 1040, using language that is more clear and personable than the official IRS instructions.
Anybody who itemizes deductions, or who might do so in the future, will find _Taxes for Dummies_ extremely helpful. Plus, throughout the book, there are tips for handling personal finances. Most of these are geared toward the higher-income earner, but nearly everyone can learn from the tips about home ownership and retirement savings. The advice is sound.
I strongly recommend this book as an aid for preparing one's own 2003 taxes.
