Taxing reading

Midsummer is upon us, and perhaps you've grown tired of frothy summer fare about spies, zombies and fashion models. If you're ready for a change of pace, here are three books related to U.S. taxation. Not a single one tells you how to fill out a form, but each is intriguing.

Charles O. Rossotti was the IRS Commissioner from 1997 to 2002. His book is 'Many Unhappy Returns: One Man's Quest to Turn Around the Most Unpopular Organization in America,' published in 2005 by Harvard Business School Press. Rossetti was instrumental in overhauling IRS procedures giving taxpayers more rights. It's nice to read about a time when the IRS was becoming more responsive to taxpayers, and how Rossetti hoped for future simplification of the tax code.
