REVIEW for Tackling the Taxman



Thank you to ECW Press for sending me this great tax book!!!!

TITLE: Tackling the Taxman

AUTHOR: Alex Doulis

GENRE: Personal Finance

RATING: 3.5 Stars

This is the second book that I have read from author Alex Doulis.I have to say that I admire this guy. He has made a decision to keep as much of his money as possible and he has done alot of research into finding legal ways to keep his money. One of his main focus, in this book, is the taxman - everyone's favorite person to hate!! including me!!!!

This book details various stories and ways of keeping your hard-earned money AWAY from the taxman. It is truly amazing to me, when I look at my pay stub, to see how much money I just feel as though I hand over to the government - its crazy and I feel as though I don't have any choice in the matter.

After reading this book, I have to say that I feel alot more empowered. One of the main issues that I see is that I am just not informed enough of my a) rights and b) the ways (legal) around paying out so much of my money!

I have to admit that I did not understand all of the suggestions made in this book, but there is certainly alot of food for thought in this book. I will be re-reading it again so that I can get a better grasp of the concepts - and as I have said, Doulis certainly stands my his principles (not to mention his $$$$).

I definitely would be interested in this. I'm such a penny-pincher!

I feel with you looking at your paystub. I am lucky enough that my mom owns her own tax business and is a pro knowing all of the ins and outs of deductions, etc. and allowing us to keep all of our money... legally of course!

I don’t if would be worth my time to read this since I’m dealing with the tax laws in another country.
