Tax Time

by Stacey

A typical library tax blog usually consists of links to tax manuals in the Sno-Isle catalog, where to get help, and links.
But, it’s too late for that. Although, your local library is more than happy to print out a file extension.
Here are a few lighthearted suggestions and a few cautionary biographies to take your mind off April 15 or in 2016-April 18.


death taxes

Death, Taxes, and Silver Spurs by Diane Kelly

Beware tax cheats!
Tara Holloway, former CPA has traded in numbers for the Treasury Departments Criminal Investigations Division.
Suspenseful and outrageously funny.



For richer or poorer

For Richer or Poorer
The incredibly rich, but miserable New York couple, Brad Sexton, a real estate hustler and his wife, Caroline, got framed by their accountant, and fled from the IRS to the one place where no one would look for them: Amish country. Now they’ve got to do their best to blend in, and learn how to love all over again.





The brethren : a novel

The Brethren by John Grisham
They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. One was sent up for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. The third for a career-ending drunken joyride. Meeting daily in the prison law library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich–very fast.



Martha : on trial, in jail, and on a comeback

Martha: on Trial, in Jail, and on a Comeback by Robert Slater
A story of miscalculation that led Martha Stewart to a trial that never should have happened; her life in a federal prison cell, told by those who were there; her personal transformation; and, finally, her plotted comeback. This book reads like a mystery novel and draws upon dozens of interviews.




It's a long story : my life

Celebrities and tax trouble. Who doesn’t think of Willie?

It’s A Long Story: My Life by Willie Nelson
The iconic Country Music Hall of Fame artist and 10-time Grammy winner shares the story of his personal life and career, from his early ambitions and indelible relationships through his bankruptcy and founding of Farm Aid.
