(Riverwoods, ILL., February 13, 2001) People who work for themselves
have special tax concerns and a need for tax advice that extends throughout the year and

Tax Strategies for the Self-Employed covers all the bases for the tax
professional. This comprehensive treatise begins by surveying the basic income tax
principles that affect the self-employed, then moves on to more detailed coverage of the
many important topics that practitioners must understand to help clients create and
execute effective working strategies.
These range from the selection of accounting methods and start-up expenses to
automobile and transportation deductions, depreciation, pensions and employee benefits.
Rounding out the book's coverage of important income tax topics are chapters on how to
avoid hobby classification, passive loss considerations, avoiding the alternative minimum
tax and hiring independent contractors.
Three detailed chapters are devoted to the ins and outs of the self-employment tax
itself, and the text concludes with an explanation of the special estate tax issues faced
by the self-employed.
Throughout the book, extensive citation to the Internal Revenue Code, regulations and
relevant cases provides a thorough grounding in authority. Clear examples make the text
useful for the practitioners office and the classroom alike.
