8. Stealth Tax Increases End Eventually

President Bush's overhaul introduced new income tax brackets for 2001. Under the revamped rules, there are six - 10, 15, 27.5, 30.5, 35.5, and 39.1. Actually, the true top rates in 2001 for millions of upper-middle and high-income individuals often exceed the official rates above 27.5 percent. Nationally recognized expert, Julian Block, explains how these stealth taxes impact your bottom line, and what you can expect of these taxes in years to come.

HUMOR CORNER

Where do homeless accountants live? In a tax shelter. What is the definition of a good tax accountant? Someone who has a loophole named after him/her. Why don't accountants count sheep to get to sleep? Because if they lose count it would take three hours to find the error.

9. PowerPoint Tip: Recycling Your PowerPoint Slides

If you are a frequent PowerPoint user, you produce a fair number of PowerPoint slides in multiple shows. If you teach or present the same material recurrently to different audiences, chances are you'll have to copy slides between presentations or cut and paste an entire new presentation together from several slide shows. Here are some quick tips for recycling and reusing your PowerPoint slides.
