Tax Code Roadmap

Thanks to Kelly Phillips Erb @ TaxGirl for this one.  She has an article in Forbes on the story behind the Roadmap:  Taxpayer Advocate:  You Literally Need a Roadmap to Navigate Our Tax System (So They Made One).

Note that this is not a roadmap to how to prepare your taxes (except for the upper left corner, where it lists various methods for having a return prepared)  – It’s a roadmap that follows your tax return through the process once it gets to the IRS.

If you don’t follow Kelly, you should – she has terrific tax tips and a sometimes hilareous twitter feed.
