Ease your tax-time headaches with free advice.
Baffled by the IRS' ever-changing tax forms and codes? Frustrated by constant busy signals on its help lines? Skip the busy signals and go online for free help provided by members of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), who offer fast feedback to questions posted on the message boards of AOL's Tax Channel (keywords: NAEA or Tax Channel).
One board section is exclusively devoted to business tax issues, with most information pertaining to small business. Get even faster responses via the Tax Channel's real-time "chats," where users can ask questions that get answered immediately by tax professionals. (The current chat schedule is posted on the Tax Channel's welcome screen.) Still more data is found in the Tax Channel's well-stocked online library. Net-only users can find some of the same resources (but no bulletin board or chats) at NAEA's Web site, http://www.naea.org
