Tax Supplement?

Postby blackacre » Sat Aug 28, 2010 5:13 pm

I'm taking Federal Income Tax and I'm completely lost. I'm using Popkin which is less than worthless so I need something so that I don't fail this class. Anyone have any experience with any good tax supplements?

Thanks. The reviews on Amazon look pretty promising. Anyone have any experience with Chirelstein? Any other suggestions?

It was recommended to me by several lawyers. They said it was so universally recognized as excellent that even their profs recommended it.

Depends what your class is like. Chirelstein was the assigned reading for my Federal Income Tax class (the only other book we were assigned was the code itself). I found it helpful when it discussed a subject, but there were a lot of subjects it did not discuss. the Tax E&E was much more helpful to me in that class.
