  • Share

New York, 15 November 2012 – Just in time for year-end planning, The EY Tax Guide 2013 is now available for ordering online and in e-book formats with all major book retailers – a first for the 28-year-old staple of tax preparation. Readers will find everything they need to prepare for the 2012 filing season, using the 28th edition filled with tax tips and information on tax law changes in a straightforward and accessible style. And since The Guide is now available electronically, it’s even easier to search for advice on your individual tax situation.

“It’s more important than ever to plan for several possible scenarios in this changing tax environment,” said Greg Rosica, an Ernst & Young LLP Tax Partner and contributing author to the EY Tax Guide 2013. “Many taxpayers are confused about how potential tax changes will affect their personal situations. The EY Tax Guide is an excellent reference tool taxpayers can use to help them plan accordingly.”

Now available in hard copy, eMOBI, ePUB and ePDF, The Guide offers taxpayers and preparers convenient, on-the-go access to expiring tax provisions and other important 2012 tax changes. Readers can now search effortlessly for specific tax deductions and rules or browse through the helpful content. Taxpayers and preparers can also sign up to receive tax alert emails with up-to-date information about tax law changes through the companion website – ey.com/EYTaxGuide.

“Tax rates are set to increase in January and several tax deductions will expire at the end of 2012,” said Rosica. “As changes occur, the Tax Guide companion website will keep up. Taxpayers should analyze their financial situation and consider the best timing for gifting, income, charitable donations, business succession and portfolio decisions.”

Year after year, the EY Tax Guide (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.; $24.95, 994 pp.) is praised by critics as one of the best tax preparation resources available, helping families, entrepreneurs, investors, homeowners, senior citizens and military personnel file their taxes accurately.

“Taxpayers who reference the EY Tax Guide and its companion website are better prepared and educated about useful deductions, tax breaks and common filing errors,” said Rosica. “With the benefit of automatic tax alerts, they are equipped to weather the uncertainty.”

Included are two books in one – Publication 17 – Your Federal Income Tax, the official Internal Revenue Service tax guide, and the EY Tax Guide 2013 – to provide well-rounded tax information. This combination offers the IRS’ position on many of the questions taxpayers face, as well as EY’s comments, explanations, and tax-saving tips.

Helpful information within each chapter includes:

  • TaxSavers: tips to reduce your tax bill this year and next
  • TaxPlanners: ideas to better plan for the upcoming year
  • TaxAlerts: tax rules and regulations that changed recently or may change in the near future
  • TaxOrganizers: steps to take now that can make tax filing easier

The Guide incorporates valuable tools, such as the 50 most overlooked tax deductions, enhanced coverage of the alternative minimum tax (AMT) and the estate and gift tax, the 25 most common tax-filing errors, green tax breaks and incentives, and over 1,000 money-saving tax tips.
