From William Perez:
For me, it's not just about the numbers. It's also about understanding a person's financial life and making sense of our ever-changing tax code. I utilize critical thinking and analytical skills to understand America's tax system.
While I make every effort to insure that the tax information on About.com is accurate, the information published on About.com is of a general nature. There are many particular details found in the tax code. Accordingly, if you have specific questions about your taxes, your best resource is to work directly with a tax professional who can analyze your situation and help you figure out how the tax laws apply. This is important because I need to let you know about one provision found in a regulation called Treasury Circular 230. Under this law, you cannot use any of the information on this Web site for the purpose of avoiding penalties that may be imposed by the IRS. That's why in every article I write, I'll refer you to the appropriate materials from the IRS so that you can dig deeper into particular tax issues.
