Choosing A Reference Book

Posted by taxguru on February 18, 2006


Subject: 1040 Express Answers

Hello, I noticed you mentioned that you are using the CCH 1040 Express Answers book. I am considering this book. How does it compare to similar products, such as Quickfinder and The Tax Book?? I noticed in one of your posts that you couldn’t find the updates page for the Express Book. I came across it doing a Yahoo search. I’m sure I can find it again, if you haven’t found it by now. Any feedback greatly appreciated.


Check out this post from last December.

Since I wrote that earlier piece, I have been using The TaxBook almost exclusively and have rarely had to open any of the QF books, which I did buy this year.  I have been most impressed with the table of contents it has on each tab page.  It’s made finding things much more efficient. 

A few weeks ago, I finally received my copy of TMI’s All States Edition of the TaxBook.  I was similarly impressed with how they set this book up and already consider it superior to the comparable book from QuickFinder.

If you are looking for just one book to work with, I heartily recommend The TaxBook.

Good luck.

Kerry, so I gather from your post, that you would recommend The Tax Book over the CCH 1040 Express Book? I am trying to find just one book to have as a reference. Thanks for your reply.
