Tax This!: An Insider's Guide to Standing Up to the IRS
by Scott Estill

Tax This! An Insider's Guide to Standing Up to the IRS, is just that. It provides the insight of an insider that will help you stand up to the IRS in any situation. Little known facts and difficult to conceive strategies are revealed that will help any target of the IRS deal effectively with them or help prevent you from becoming their target.

Author Scott Estill discloses all the rights, which are many, that citizens have when confronted with a problem involving the IRS. He gives an insider's look at the culture, attitudes, and seemingly out of control bureaucracy that prevails inside the IRS and prepares you to deal with the IRS at that level also. His information is backed up by references to the Internal Revenue Code, Congressional Law, and established judicial decisions.

Tax This also provides clear examples of completed IRS forms, which are many and varied. Overall, this is an informative, easy read for someone like me with little knowledge of the IRS. It will hold your interest even if the IRS isn't breathing down your neck and may be invaluable if they are.

A Guide To Tax Forms   
Carl LaFresnaye

Looking at the Internal Revenue Service's website (www.irs.gov) can be a bewildering experience.

A vast array of tax forms greets you and figuring out which ones to use can be a chore. This guide is designed to help take some of the mystery out of it.

Which Tax Form Should I Use?

There are three main tax forms used to file your return: 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ.

1040EZ is the easiest form to fill in. You can only use it if all the following conditions apply. You need to be single or married filing jointly, with no dependents and a total taxable income of less than $100,000. You and your spouse need to have been born after January 1, 1943 and neither of you can be legally blind. Your only income sources should be an employer (wages, tips and salaries), scholarships or the government (unemployment or the Alaska Permanent Fund). Taxable interest of $1500 or less is also allowed. You should not have received any adjustments to income such as advance Earned Income Credit, deductions for IRA funds or student loan interest in the tax year being covered. And you should not owe any tax on payments made to household staff.

If you do not qualify for form 1040EZ, there is an intermediate form to fill out, form 1040A. Many of the conditions are the same, but some adjustments to income and tax credits are allowed (see the IRS website for details). You must not itemize your deductions. If these conditions do not apply, then you must fill out the full form 1040.

Additional Tax Forms

There are numerous other tax forms in addition to the basic 1040 forms. Schedules A and B cover itemized deductions, with another dozen or so schedules covering different tax credits. In addition, there are all sorts of forms for business owners, fiduciary trusts and any other sort of taxable income you could name. To list them all in detail would take a book, and indeed, several good books are available on the subject. Some popular titles include Taxes For Dummies, J K Lasser's Your Income Tax and the Ernst and Young Tax Guide. These are all published annually in order to keep up to date with changes to the tax code.

Where to File Your Tax Forms

The IRS has regional offices in Atlanta, Dallas, New York City and San Francisco. For Americans living overseas, it also has international offices in Frankfurt, London, Paris and Puerto Rico. Or you can file online for a speedier refund.
