Read what people are saying about The Tax Lady’s Guide to Beating the IRS And Saving Big Bucks on Your Taxes.
Are you bleeding money to the IRS? Are they sucking you dry? If so, this is a book for you. As Roni Deutch points out again and again in her book, millions of Americans don't have a clue when it comes to taxes. They blindly feel like they're doing the right thing, following the rules and blindly paying their taxes. Don't get Roni wrong, me either. You're supposed to pay your taxes, but you're not supposed to overpay them. You're supposed to pay your fair share, but you're not supposed to pay your neighbor's share.
This book should be required reading for anyone paying income taxes. Most people have no idea of how many legitimate deductions are contained in the ever-expanding IRS Tax Code. Even CPA's have a tough time keeping up with all the annual changes, but this will give the average taxpayer a heads up. For anyone with a small business this is required reading.
There is just so much useful information in this book that it should be required to have this sitting next to you along with several number two pencils every April when you do your taxes.
Geared to do-it-yourself types, this book simplifies the rules of tax preparation. The information is basic, but basic is a good place to start, because as the author puts it: "The More You Know, the Less You Pay."
The content alone is worth the price of the book for the average W-2 employee where smart investments and taking advantage of tax saving tips and shelters are explained. The hidden "golden nuggets" of information in the book are for people who may be self employed or still have outstanding debt in the form of back taxes owed to the IRS. Here the author offers tips to help settle that debt and must, as a logical and ancillary extension of the book, offer her professional services as well. This book is refreshing as it takes stark contrast from the usual genre position of hiding in the shadows and boldly offers advice for “Beating The IRS”.
This book is amazing! It is full of information that is easy for me to understand. I dread tax season and having to deal with the IRS. This book gave me great tips on saving money, and in this economy, every cent helps. Thank you Roni Deutch for giving me the upper hand for once! A great read and a great buy!
Let's be honest, taxes are not the most "fun" topic to read about. The silly jokes and corny puns cracked me up just because I was getting sick of thinking about taxes and money! I mean, really, who does want to think about money these days? I found it refreshing to be able to learn more about one of the best ways to save in this economy; by saving on your taxes. I recommend this book to any one who wants to both understand taxes and conquer their fears of tax knowledge. You may even want to pick it up if you are a tax expert, because it is written in a way that makes the very complicated jargon of the tax world easier to understand, and explain to your clients.
The book is filled with 340 pages of how to save money on your taxes. Even better, at the end of the book, you are given 50 direct steps to help save more money. With the economy in the dumps, we have to save money somehow. Why let the Government take unnecessary cash and distribute it to poorly run financial institutions to lose it again? Take back what is yours the legal way with [this book] as your partner.

This is an awesome book, full of wonderful advice and information about taxes. It talks about different types of taxes. It gives practical advice about keeping good records. It gives many good tax tips. It tells how to file and what you can claim, etc. It covers absolutely all aspects of taxes. I think this book is essential for everybody; it has a wealth of advice and information. This book didn't leave anything out.
Getting a break from the tax man isn't easy, but the Tax lady shows you the way. Great tips, very user-friendly, and loaded with personality.
I would most definitely recommend this book to those in a tax "fog" as it will probably clear up most of the mysteries involved in paying taxes. [S]horter books such as this one I find more informative than the huge versions that look like the NYC phone directory.
With quotes and stories from Tiger Woods, Muhammed Ali, Michael Phelps and just about every other sports hero to keep you entertained and awake this book breaks down what can be really confusing legal or accountese and translates it for we little people. It helped to answer some of my questions on filing status that I had tried to solve by looking on-line several times with no glee. Now I am going into tax time armed with knowledge and a big mug of coffee. Hopefully that spells good things for my monetary future.
It's a great book and very easy to read. Reading books like Roni's makes you aware of the value of hiring a tax professional to assist you with your taxes, tax planning and representation in case of an audit or other issues involving the IRS or local tax authorities. It also brings home the point that you should consider consulting with and later hiring a professional to assist you with other endeavors as well.

The author, Roni Lynn Deutch, takes the agony out of reading about taxes and tax preparation. In fact, for such a dry topic the book is remarkably easy to read. Deutch prepares readers for a boxing match with the IRS, by helping them understand the tax laws in detail... All in all I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Tax Lady's Guide to Beating the IRS. Although I read the book from cover to cover I think it would also make a great tax reference.

I especially liked the detail in which the author, Robin Lynn Deutch, went into with regard to using investment vehicles such as IRAs and 401(k)s to realize large tax savings -- these are the double whammies of not only saving on taxes, but investing in your future... Furthermore, if you file your own taxes and are looking to evaluate your options and overall tax strategy, I have not read a more easy-to-digest book on the subject.
I know what I’m going to do, because I read The Tax Lady's Guide to Beating the IRS and Saving Big Bucks on Your Taxes by Roni Lynn Deutch. It is the best tax advice book I’ve ever read... changed my perspective on business record keeping entirely[.]
