Book Giveaway: KPMG Tax Planning For You and Your Family 2008 Edition

Win a Free Copy of KPMG’s Tax Planning For You and Your Family 2008! 

KPMGTaxBook.jpgJust arrived in sunny Vancouver today for two weeks of visiting with my parents and with my BC clients, so I needed a quick post to whip up! As luck would have it, someone sent me an extra copy of KPMG’s Tax Planning For You and Your Family 2008, so I thought I would give it away through a contest on the blog.

Every year I keep the updated copy with me almost at all times (home or work), and to be honest, I do even read it at night for fun on occasion. The book is not daunting at all, it’s actually set up mostly in a point-form format with very quick and succinct information that is surprisingly easy to read. Anyone who has an interest in personal finance should consider buying a copy. I think most people would find a few tips that will save enough taxes to cover the purchase.

However, you might want to wait a few days before running off to make that purchase because you’ll want to see if you won this giveaway contest that I’m running first. :)

Easy Rules:

  • Just leave a comment on this post by midnight (EST) on Sunday May 11th, 2008 (scroll down to see the comment link below) for a free entry.
  • Bloggers can earn a second free entry by providing a link to this contest post on any regular blog entry between now and midnight on Saturday May 10th, 2008 (and drop me a line, or let me know through your comment below that you did so, or are planning to so I know to look out for it and count it).
  • Random draw for the winner will take place at midnight on Sunday May 11th, 2008 with the winner announced on Monday May 12th, 2008.
  • You must provide a valid email address in the comment form (don’t worry it is kept private and not shown to others)

That’s it – Good Luck everyone!
