Review quote

For too many years, CEOs, lawyers, lobbyists, financiers, and other fat cats have tapped top tax advisers with insider tax tricks to drastically cut their tax bills--and soak everyone else. Peter J. Riley is the expert tax adviser for the rest of us. He levels the playing field for us writers, artists, actors, musicians, and other creative folks. Peter may not make you a millionaire, but he can make you think and calculate like one come tax time. He knows all the creative but legal tax strategies and secrets to reduce your tax burden so you can quickly get back to doing what you do best--with your money still in your pocket. Better yet, he explains all these strategies and secrets in plain, easy-to-grasp language that makes complete sense to the average, semi-numerate person like me. Reading Peter's new tax book is almost your patriotic duty! Mark HoffmanRoots-music writer and co-author of"Moanin' at Midnight: The Life and Timesof Howlin' Wolf" ( Peter's book has been an enormously helpful tool for me. The ever-changing world of tax guidelines for artists confounds me, but the language Peter uses helps to simplify for those of us who are 'tax-challenged'. I can't imagine using any other source...well, except the man himself! Natalie Brownequity actor This extremely helpful book has given me tools I was sorely lacking. Without Peter Jason Riley and his illuminating tax guide, I would be an anchorless ship on the high seas of finance!" Andre Dubus IIInovelist Peter Riley not only saved me thousands of dollars in tax payments, but he also saved each of my band members thousands. He knows the ins and outs of entertainment tax law and we are all in a better place financially because of it!
