2020 Editions: Investing Made Simple, Sole Proprietor Taxes, LLC vs. S-Corp (Also a Roundup)

Just a quick announcement today. The 2020 editions of three of my books were released this week. You can find them at the links below:

In each case the book has been updated for any applicable tax changes — both legislative changes and inflation adjustments to various figures.

In Investing Made Simple the chapter about working with a financial advisor has been reworked to discuss not only the differences in compensation (e.g., hourly fees as opposed to AUM fees as opposed to commission) but also the fact that different advisors actually do different things for you (e.g., some advisors focus exclusively on managing your portfolio, while others provide broader financial planning).
