It's Tax Time...

April 18th is sneaking closer and closer -- and boy, do I have the perfect book for you to read during this tax season. Richard Yancey's Confessions of a Tax Collector: One Man's Tour of Duty Inside the IRS is full of dry wit, eccentric characters, and juicy scenes told with the insight only an IRS insider could provide. Far from being the dry tome you might expect a "tax book" to be, this memoir reads like fiction. You'll meet people who neglected their taxes so egregiously that Yancey and his colleagues come knocking at their doors to demand payment. And although you might sympathize with the people who owe money, you'll probably sympathize even more with Yancey, who does a remarkable job of humanizing the plight of the IRS man everyone loves to hate.
So if you need a break from working on your own taxes this month, pick up Yancey's book and have a good laugh. And if you need help with your taxes, remember that there are places where you can get free assistance--and some of them are at the library. Check out this link for more information.
