Overview: Smbiz.com offers daily updates and commentary on tax court cases and tax news, special reports, and links to tax legislation.


  • Site use is free.
  • The site loads quickly.
  • The commentary is informed, timely, useful and relevant, and the reference section offers quick links to information preparers can use every day, such as vehicle standard mileage rates and depreciation limits, both current and historical.
  • The site has been on line since 1999 (according to the past issues), and is updated five days a week.

Potential Drawbacks

  • The site contains advertisements, and these ads put cookies on your computer.
