Don’t spend the money on the 2013 edition This is basically the same as of the 2012 edition. The authors failed to wait for the tax changes created by the “fiscal cliff.” Why put out a 2013 edition if it is not going to reflect the signigicant changes which occurred in 2012?

Great Resource I had an older edition and the newer edition is just as great. Great for a new practitioner or someone just looking for a refresher. The forms are great too.
