Making the WSJ tax blog list

Tax manuals with personality. That's how the Wall Street Journal's Yoree Koh describes tax blogs that, "with their pithy analysis, can be a great to way make sense of regulatory changes and acronyms."

To that end, Koh recently selected The Top Five Accounting Blogs. Appearing at number three on the list is, ta-dah!, Don't Mess With Taxes.

Here's the blurb from, the newspaper's new finance sector career site:

Don't Mess With Taxes: Though tax professionals hardly need tax advice, the colorful news items and perspective dispensed by Kay Bell, a self-proclaimed tax geek and native Texan, makes this site worth the visit. The blog's roundup of humorous and wonky industry news items is a refreshing take on an otherwise dry business. Sprinkled in are tips on how to make the work less tedious. For a straight-talk approach, Bell has a second blog, Eye on the IRS.

Making the list is thrilling on its own. But when you look at the other four blogs cited by Koh, I am especially honored and humbled. They are:

Thanks for the very kind words. I promise to do my best to remain entertaining and stay on top of wonky tax tidbits.

To whom it my concern : A compromise, please extend the current tax rates for five years for all. In five years the (rates) may change for a gross income per. year of $1,000,000 or more. Although very five years after that these rates could change,giving individuals and business a look forward to any new expenses incurred. Thank you for your time,David A.Lawrence


Congratulations! Nice blog...

Please tell me some of the ways that I can increase the 401k contributions , but not reduce my take home pay. I think that it has something to do with the number of my exemptions that I choose, am I correct?


Congratulations, Kay.

You deserve to be on any list of the top tax blogs.

Nice job.
