dj111 writes (in part):I'd like to piggy-back on the previous poster's comments. The U.S. tax code is complicated and dynamic. As a taxpayer, you should develop a grasp of tax fundamentals, you should be able to complete a simple tax return and follow a complex tax return, and you should be able to participate meaningfully in political debates on tax policy.I reply:I think we're reading slaramee's post two different ways. I think he wants to "master this tax thing" sufficiently to prepare his own return with some degree of confidence. I, for one, find that to be a very Foolish goal, and one to which I aspire myself (I was self-employed for the first time during part of 2001, so I'll find out how much I understand about depreciation). After all, if he doesn't understand the Code well enough to prepare his own return, tax planning will be a great deal harder. --Bob
