Tax manuals with personality. That's how the Wall Street Journal's Yoree Koh describes tax blogs that, "with their pithy analysis, can be a great to way make sense of regulatory changes and acronyms."
To that end, Koh recently selected The Top Five Accounting Blogs. Appearing at number three on the list is, ta-dah!, Don't Mess With Taxes.
Here's the blurb from FINS.com, the newspaper's new finance sector career site:
Don't Mess With Taxes: Though tax professionals hardly need tax advice, the colorful news items and perspective dispensed by Kay Bell, a self-proclaimed tax geek and native Texan, makes this site worth the visit. The blog's roundup of humorous and wonky industry news items is a refreshing take on an otherwise dry business. Sprinkled in are tips on how to make the work less tedious. For a straight-talk approach, Bell has a second blog, Eye on the IRS.
Making the list is thrilling on its own. But when you look at the other four blogs cited by Koh, I am especially honored and humbled. They are:
- TaxProf Blog by Paul Caron
- Tax Policy Blog from the folks at The Tax Foundation
- Tax Watch put together by Thomson Reuters writers
- A Taxing Matter by Linda Beale
Thanks for the very kind words. I promise to do my best to remain entertaining and stay on top of wonky tax tidbits.
