Spidell’s Analysis and Explanation of California Taxes® 2021 Edition (The Big Blue Answer Book™)
Get California’s #1 tax guide — When paying less means getting more
Highlights of your 2021 guide you’ll need to prepare 2020 returns:
- Grasp nonconformity/conformity to federal COVID-19 tax changes and learn how to use the differences to your advantage
- Don’t be caught off guard: the EDD is charging ahead with AB 5 audits despite the craziness
- Help your clients pay sales tax deferrals and unpaid income and payroll taxes
- Because over 30% of Californian’s income tax goes to California, your clients need your help keeping their liability as low as possible
Spidell’s California tax pros deliver the goods: up-to-date legislation and analysis, with practical advice on preparing forms, facing an audit, abating penalties — you name it.
