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. --BobStill, this board is great for getting answers to specific questions, but it doesn't lend itself to giving broad knowledge, unless you barrage the board with issues that are not particularly difficult to look up. The one thing about posts on these messageboards that I don't like is that few people take the time to do a simple search to find the info themselves. For example, anybody who is halfway serious about learning taxes has familiarized themselves with the IRS website and knows how to look things up in the publications and instructions.Many of the posts in general make it very clear that many people don't know how to work a search tool like Google (my favorite) or Yahoo. Either that, or they are too lazy.Oh, well. Life goes on.
