Lawrenceville, NJ (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
Supplanting confusing technical jargon with practical and easy-to-follow listings, a new series specialized tax books, TAX DEDUCTIONS A TO Z® provide expert research in a user-friendly, alphabetical format, in order to maximize deductions on tax returns.
No ones likes to pay taxes. But everyone likes to take tax deductions. After twenty years of preparing tax returns for clients from all walks of life, Anne Skalka, CPA, has seen how many taxpayers would routinely overpay their taxes because they simply don’t take advantage of the deductions they’re entitled to.
But can you blame the average taxpayer? Anyone who’s tried to read the tax code will quickly realize that it’s nearly impossible to translate the myriad regulations, restrictions, references, and sub-references to come to a clear understanding of what is a legal and allowable tax deduction.
Anne Skalka’s clients have asked her hundreds (maybe thousands) of times whether something is deductible. Health insurance for pets? Special hosiery for a waitress job? Money given to a parent? Lottery tickets? The home computer? Music lessons? Diet pills? Conventions on Cruise Ships?
ANNE SKALKA has gathered together the key deductions for the typical taxpayer and presented them in plain-English. In addition to TAX DEDUCTIONS A TO Z®, there are ten additional titles in the series that address taxpayers who are in the following fields: Clergy, Military, Education, Trades and Unions, Home Office and Self-Employed, Arts, Public Safety, Health Care, Contractors and Freelancers, Sales, etc.
Each book includes a handy log to get folks in the habit of recording their deductible expenses, such as Travel and entertainment, automobile, etc. But there’s also a separate log book, TAX DEDUCTIONS A TO Z® LOG BOOK, that accompanies the series, for those who choose to be diligent about tax deductions.
