As Certain as Death: Quotations About Taxes


Jeff Yablon has compiled a wonderful collection of tax quotes for the new edition of As Certain as Death: Quotations About Taxes. I discovered the book from an Alan Sloan column that appeared in the Washington Post. Sloan quotes Mark Iwry, Senior Advisor to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary (Retirement and Health Policy) at Treasury. Mark is the most quoted living person in the book. Justice Jackson holds the record but I predict that Mark will overtake him in later editions since Justice Jackson is dead and Mark is still alive and saying quotable things.

My firm is hosting a book signing on Saturday, May 8, from 2 to 4 pm, at the Irish Channel Restaurant at 5th and H Streets NW in DC. You are all invited.
