Publisher's Summary

This is a powerful story woven around one theme: Tax planning can change your life.
Tackling the fundamental question asked by all taxpayers - How can I save on taxes? - attorney and CPA Mark J. Kohler empowers you to dismiss standard CPA viewpoints like "your tax payment is what it is" and "you just make too much money."
Simplified through the mastery of storytelling, Kohler invites you to immerse yourself in the compelling tale of a typical family's tax awakening. Through their journey, you'll discover critical but underutilized tax strategies to achieve huge tax savings, greater wealth, and ultimately, a winning pursuit of the American Dream.

From one CPA to another

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is hard to write a book about tax strategies and I give Mr. Kohler credit with the creativity of telling a story. The reviews on Amazon were much more positive so it may be a book that needs to be read. The sound quality was not up to usual standards although the author gave it his best, there should have been some editing. I found the story moved too slow with a payoff that was less then I hoped for.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked that the PDF for Appendix B was available and that will be a good visual resource.
I believe the recommendations to start a business andor do rental Real Estate is solid but takes a great deal of work.
The major opinion on the self directed IRA as something "the Wall Street Machine" does not want you to know about is very questionable advice. Financial planners and investment people make less but CPAs and custodians make a lot more. I am not saying it can not work; but after researching it for my clients, there are many fees, traps, and hassles...be careful! It sounds great in theory to start a business or buy property inside a qualified account but you still have to follow through on making money. The great part of investing is you put up the capital and others do the work!

Any additional comments?

I am a small business owner. I could not finish this book. For 45 minutes, the author talks about himself and his wife, trying to tell an engaging story that actually sounds like a skit on Christian radio. I never heard anything valuable AT ALL. Maybe after 45 minutes this book has something useful, but I could take no more than that. Note to author: If this book is supposed to TEACH me something, you can't expect readers to wait so long to hear something useful. Also, if your consternations about CPAs in the beginning makes it sound like you are talking about the boogyman. Seriously?

Also, head up to the potential buyer of this audible book: The author reads his own book aloud, making mistakes at times, sometimes stopping to catch his breath after run on sentences.

To Audible/Amazon - This is not what I expect from Audible, and I suggest this book be taken down. The positive reviews must be from friends and family of the author.
