I recently discovered a new financial Web site, FiLife. Well, it's not new; it's been around for a couple of years. But it's new to me.
And I didn't exactly discover it. One of FiLife's writers, Kristen Sullivan, got in touch with me.
Regardless of how we connected, I'm pleased to say we had a very nice conversation last week and there's online proof of our talk: Q&A with Tax Expert S. Kay Bell. As the FiLife site says, here's the short story:
S. Kay Bell, author of The Truth About Paying Fewer Taxes offers some advice for first-time tax filers, savings tips for those claiming the standard deduction and more. As usual, she makes taxes sound so manageable...
I certainly appreciate Kristen's comment about how I make taxes sound manageable, as well as her assessment that "Bell’s conversational tone and helpful tips make the book a must-read (maybe even a "fun-read") for anyone looking to understand their taxes better."
Cool! A fun-read tax book! There are no nicer words for a tax geek to hear.
But I recommend you check out Kristen's story, not just for her kind words about my book (since I've already recounted them here!), but for the tax advice I shared. And if you want more tax news -- and who doesn't? -- FiLife has its own tax section.
