This is a good book...BUT there are better ones available
Being a CPA and attorney,I am a saavy financial person and read a lot of tax and financial books.
How To Pay Zero Tax has been out for quite a while and is actually one of the first tax planning books that I have read. It is fairly comprehensive and actually better than most of the tax planning books out there. However,there are two main problems with it though for the average reader.
First, it is literally much too much. It has over 600 pages and some of it isn't clear. Mr.Schnepper tries to be all things to all people, which doesn't really succeed. I guess a point in all directions is a circle. In fact, despite its length,some of the discussion on topics tends to be too brief.
The second problem that has been noted by other reviewers is that this book hasn't be kept up to date. I guess Mr. Schnepper is "resting on his laurals."
Let me be clear about this: it's not that I disliked this book. It is just that there are a number of other, more up to date and better written tax books that I would recommend instead such as Lower Your Taxes: BIG TIME by a Mr. Botkin.
This book should be required reading for everbody. This book gives you valuable tips to avoid paying taxes to IRS LEGALLY. By helping you to understand the tax system you'll better appreciate why we pay taxes, how to pay them correctly, how to pay ONLY what you owe, and how to AVOID TAXES LEGALLY. It is written in PLAIN english. Simply superb. A must read for everyone.
This book is for people earning a minimum of $250,000
This book was a disappointment because it did not show meenough in tax savings to justify the cost of the book. I gave it a 1star because a zero rating was not any more available for reviews than paying zero taxes is for 'regular' taxpayers.
I feel the author is more of an IRS, tax attorney and financial planner advocate than a taxpayer advocate.
The book has many time consuming, complicated and expensive techniques for reducing taxes. The author fails to communicate the likely prohibitive cost of availing oneself to these 'tax saving' methods.
