    Crisp primer on US taxes, great for learning the language of your tax advisor, not a substitute for hiring professional help

    A great blend of succinct and in-depth. If you tried wading through any J. K. Lasser tome on taxes and had immense trouble with it like I did, pick up this book instead. And while a lot of the info might not apply to you in the moment (child tax credit when you have no kids) or be out-of-date, the information is still useful and very aptly explained in the examples Piper provides. I did wish for a little more time spent on defining terms, like "capital" when referring to gains/losses, and "adjus A great blend of succinct and in-depth. If you tried wading through any J. K.

I did wish for a little more time spent on defining terms, like "capital" when referring to gains/losses, and "adjusted gross income". I eventually figured out what both were, but have them defined early on, along with all the other terminology, would have made the book even better, in my view. Regardless, it does what it says in around 100 pages, and you can't go wrong with that.

    Picked up this book to get a general overview on how taxes work. Did not disappoint. This book was short, to the point, and did not play around. I respect that it was purely educational and the simple phrasing and examples made everything easy to understand. I really like the book, and recommend it to anyone who wants to do their own taxes or wants to learn more about taxes in general. It doesn't cover all the possible deductions and credits that one may get, but it has enough for us to get a go Picked up this book to get a general overview on how taxes work. Did not disappoint.

    Read it if you are a beginner as a startup book If you are someone "new" to the American system it is a good place to start specially if your income is not one of the high brackets. I think as a single below 70k and 130 k as married. Specially if you don't have a complex situation.

    Quick read Mr. Piper did an excellent job of describing all the variables and options for those who have a lower income with circumstances. Perhaps he encouraged having someone else do the paperwork for you a bit too much, and glossed over collecting all the necessary information before anyone starts, but hey--he kept it simple.

    Excellent! This book does a fantastic job of breaking down a complex subject into easy-to-understand chunks. I just took a week long course on taxes and this book perfectly summarized everything I learned. Great for tax newbies such as myself or anyone looking for a refresher on the basics. Highly recommend!

    Very nicely written This is an easy to read book that explains the basics of taxes. It does not go into the details of deductions and credits but gives a very short answer to most of the questions.

    Very easy to read and understand. Quick explanation of taxes, credits and deductions. I would recommend this book to any person who want to start learning about filing taxes, but this is not an advanced book, if you want to become a specialist or something, look elsewhere.

    Basic Tax Review Simple and easy to understand. This should be a first read for those unfamiliar with taxes. As stated in the book, it does not go into more advanced topics.

    Very helpful and straightforward. After reading this, I am more confident that I will be able to do my taxes myself, especially since I have relatively simple needs.

    Great introductory text to the basics of tax preparation that can be read in just a couple hours but referenced over a lifetime.

    Worth reading once. I filed taxes on my own for the first time last year and learned a lot that way. I didn't realize I knew much until the book. I did learn a couple new things though.

    Exactly what I wanted. This book gave me a brief overview of taxes that will help me understand the broad strokes of the system.

    Very great Tax book! If you don't anything about taxes this is where you should start! It catches you quickly on Exemptions, Above the line deductions, Below the line deductions (Standard vs Itemized), and credits etc. etc. It also gives lots of info about what Tax Brackets are and how they work. Of course if you want updated numbers for filing in 2018 then you can always look them up online or in an updated tax book like I did.

    Excellent coverage of most of what people need to do their taxes in the US. The examples are easy to follow, realistic, and to the point. At a little less than 100 pages it did not cover everything for me but I have medium level complexity in my taxes (by my own design). I think this book would greatly help those of less means discover all the different tax breaks they can take advantage of in the US tax code.

    This book is for really beginners, not for people who already have some common tax experience.

    This is a perfect introduction to the US income tax system that you can easily read in one evening. The author does a great job covering all of the key principles of the federal tax code and explaining them in a way that most people should be able to follow. It's not a "how to" for doing your taxes and he doesn't delve into the complexities of the tax code.

    This book is full of useful advice for those who want to understand taxes a little better. Granted, this is for those with little experience with taxes, but it still packs a lot of information. The best part is that most of the things explained in this also have examples to make the whole idea more understandable. I am not saying that I am a tax pro now, but I do know more than most because of this book.

    Helpful Very clear and concise. It was quick and easy to read through. I learned some new things and it cleared up a few other concepts that I was confused about. I would have liked an additional chapter in order to cover more obscure deductions, exemptions, and credits.

    Great book Great book to understand taxes. The book is split into multiple easy to read chapters. Chapters on AMT, state taxes and capital gain taxes were interesting reads. Highly recommend for any tax payer in the US.

    Short and sweet. But I wish he'd explained some parts a bit more: - What exactly is/can be a dependent?
