From Apply Now:
I approach being a tax accountant a bit differently than others. For me, it's not just about the numbers. It's also about understanding a person's financial life and making sense of our ever-changing tax code. I strive to read the tax laws critically and analytically, and to apply those laws to individual circumstances with sympathetic impartiality.
While I make every effort to insure that the tax information on About.com is accurate, it is your responsibility to make sure that you follow the tax laws. This is important because I need to let you know about one provision found in a regulation called Treasury Circular 230. Under this law, you cannot use any of the information on this Web site for the purpose of avoiding penalties that may be imposed by the IRS. That's why in every article I write, I'll refer you to the appropriate materials from the IRS so that you can dig deeper into particular tax issues.
