"Mr Taxman is awesome. I had a question in regards to tax treatment of a property - looked up the ATO website and it was all gobbeldygook. Sent Mr Taxman the question and he answered in a split second, easy to understand language and made a lot of sense. Thanks MrTaxman"

"Hi Adrian, Could you add our business as a respected supplier of your book. www.PropertyBooks.com.au Many thanks, Paul"

By: Paul Tooze on May 30, 2011 9:37AM

"If I buy this book to help me do my tax can I claim it on my tax?"

By: Jen on Jun 08, 2011 7:02AM

"You sure can Jen - the ATO allows a tax deduction for reference material, such as this book, to help you manage your tax affairs. But if you elect to buy this book as bedtime storybook for the kids (let's face it ... it will definitely put them to sleep!) then it wouldn't be deductible in that instance. So not only do you save (or make) money with the tips ... it is a tax deduction that makes the book cheaper & even more attractive. Happy reading"

"I've bought this book. Its a great read, and it does enlighten on a things that mind boggles about what you can claim for. I would highly recommend this book, as times are getting harder and you need to know how to get back as much as your tax as you possibly can."

"Amazon seems to have big problems to get the book. They still think it is not published yet. I ordered in June and they still do not know when it will be published "

By: Martin on Sep 15, 2011 1:02PM

"Hi Martin Thanks for your message & sorry to hear about your hassles with Amazon. I have spoken to the publishers & they have advised that their US company have yet to order copies of the book – hence they have no pub date on Amazon. There is often a delay of 2-3 months between Australian publication and availability in the US. However they can see by their global inventory system that there are backorders in the US & going to prod the US to order so that we can fulfill the orders. Guess I have learnt something else about the book industry today! Sorry for the hassle - the wait will be worth it! "
