"Are you paying more taxes than you have to? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you're entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, "If you don't claim it, you don't get it. That's money down the drain for millions of Americans." This invaluable book, updated to reflect changes in tax laws that took effect in 2011, not only lists the individual items that aredeductible--from internet domain name costs to theft losses--but also where to list them on your income tax form. "Tax law isn't easy," the author explains, "but this book is.""--
