Instead of maintaining the corrections in the forum, why don't we put them in the wiki? It's already in a nice, easy to read, page layout and can handle outlines, pictures, graphs - everything you find in a book.Dan Kohn wrote:As the author of Chapter 3, I'm pleased to report that your corrections are actually for Chapter 2. However, by the time you get to Chapter 3, you may well find some there as well.tomd37 wrote:If anyone is interested in corrections; Chapter 3 refers to personal exemptions for yourself, your spouse, and your children. A personal exemption is only for yourself and your spouse. A dependent exemption is for your other qualified dependents such as your child.
State sales taxes do exceed 6.25 percent. Here in Tennessee the state sales tax is 7.00 percent, to which the local sales tax is added. We pay a total of 9.25% in my locality. As mentioned in the book, we do not have an income tax, but rather a tax on certain interest and dividend income.
If you don't mind, it would probably be best to start a new thread just dedicated to corrections.
You can show the original text, the correction, and give a reason why it's being corrected. A good way to learn...
The correction pages will be categorized (like all pages are now), so the information can easily be found. It would also drive traffic to the wiki as well as improve the book's contribution to the community.
It might take a few days to get something organized. In any case, use this thread to collect all the corrections.
Update: One of the authors requested that this thread be used for feedback. In addition to corrections, are there any comments / questions for the authors? I changed the thread title to reflect the update.
Note that we can update relevant wiki pages to reflect additional comments while simultaneously enhancing book content. Please start a separate thread if discussions go beyond the scope of the book content.
Those who want to update the wiki directly are more than welcome to become editors .
