JK Lasser’s 101 Plans to Pay Less Taxes
(revised and updated)
Bernard Greisman, editor
1984

For all our American friends, April 15 is Tax Day.

In the late 1980s, I was an accountant and did my fair share of taxes. Naturally, I am also one of those librarians who actually like tax season. It is one of the few times non library users show up at the library and a great time to show off what the library has to offer. These days I am contented to be Chief Financial Officer of ALB. I do the taxes for ALB and tell Holly we can not deduct the cost of beer and fireworks as part of operating expenses. (I suppose we can make a case if we invite a couple of librarians to join us and call it “marketing”.)

I like to use tax information as a little bit of a litmus test on collection quality. (Quick, go check your catalog now!) This book was outdated as soon as the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was passed and effectively gutting many of the “101 Ways”. There is no reason that tax books this old should be at a public library.

Weed your tax books. Look for me to nag about tax books next year at this time.

do not pay more taxes than you have to!
