“I tried the WebLibrary. I was quite surprised that I like it as much as the books themselves. It is easier to find things by using the search feature, which I like, obviously because it is quicker, especially during tax season when time is a precious commodity. Keep up the good work!”

"A very quick reference to the topic I'm researching due to the tabs and summaries for the various sections/topics."
