This book is designed to not only expose beginning tax students to tax law, but to also teach the practical intricacies involved in preparation of a tax return. Emphasizing a hands-on approach to tax education, every concept introduced in the text includes meaningful exercises that allow students to reinforce what they are learning.

Actual tax forms are included within the text—from the simplest 1040EZ to the numerous 1040 schedule forms—with real-world data inserted into actual tax forms to demonstrate applied skills. A copy of the individual tax return preparation software TaxACT 2010 Deluxe is also a part of the text package, providing yet another tool to bridge the gap between understanding and practical application of tax law.

Great deal April 17, 2011
I had to purchase this textbook for my Payroll class. It is a paperback cover but it comes new. My textbook was the same as all the others. I would always recommend looking for your school book online at ecampus before going to your own school bookstore. This way is much cheaper. It probably saved me around $50 or more just for this book.
