All are recent editions, each fully revised and updated in 2018, 2019, or 2020. See our update information page to see the dates on which our Kindle books (and state content) were updated. All editions have been updated since enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 in December, 2017.

Kindle e-books may be read on your Kindle device, or on your PC, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Droid, or other smartphones or tablet devices, if you download the applicable free Kindle "reading app" from Amazon.com. To select and order the Kindle edition for your state, [CLICK HERE], or click on the image below to order the 2017 Florida Edition.

(NOTE: Kindle editions do not include our "Small Business Advisor" artificial intelligence software, and while all Kindle editions were fully updated as of their publication dates in 2016 or 2017, the federal laws/taxes content of some Kindle editions is not as as up-to-date as the current Small Business Advisor versions, which we update regularly for federal law changes throughout the year.)

ORDERING INFORMATION (PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING): There are several things you may wish to note before placing an order:

  • METHODS OF ORDERING: Windows users may order online, by clicking on any of the order links on this web page, or you may print out and mail our Small Business Advisor software/HTML e-book combo order form with your payment if you wish to order by mail.

  • MAC USERS PLEASE NOTE: No Mac software version or CD-ROM version is available for Mac users. Instead, we offer Kindle e-book editions for the Mac and other platforms. Click here to select and order the Kindle edition for your state.

  • SECURITY: All online orders are placed through the SWREG/MyCommerce secure payments system, except for Kindle editions, which are purchased through Amazon.com. SWREG is the world's oldest seller of software on the Internet, and was recently acquired by Digital River, Inc., the large publicly-traded e-commerce company and parent of MyCommerce and SWREG.

  • SMALL BUSINESS ADVISOR SOFTWARE IS INCLUDED: All orders other than for Kindle editions, whether for one state edition or for all 33 state and D.C. editions, include at no extra charge, the Small Business Advisor front-end (Windows) software that assembles and creates the e-books (in HTML file format) on your computer, customized for your specific business. (Sorry, there is no Small Business Advisor software for Mac computers.)

  • DOWNLOAD LINKS: All on-line purchasers will immediately receive a link (by e-mail from SWREG/MyCommerce), a URL where you can download the software from the SWREG website. If you order by "snail mail," we will e-mail you a link if you provide us your e-mail address with your order form. Otherwise, we will mail you the download link, unless we are mailing you a CD-ROM. (If you don't immediately receive an e-mail containing your download link after placing an order online, check to see if it is in your "SPAM" folder.)

  • CD-ROMS: The 33-state Professional Version ($99) includes, at no extra charge or any shipping or handling charge, a CD-ROM, mailed to you first class in the U.S. (only). The single-state ($19.95) download-only version does NOT include a CD-ROM, but for an additional $5.00 ($24.95 total) you can receive the single-state version on CD-ROM, if you live in the U.S.

    Due to complex new Federal customs regulations, we will no longer mail CD-ROM's to shipping addresses in foreign countries or to an overseas U.S. Territory.

  • FORMS OF PAYMENT: If you are ordering online, SWREG/MyCommerce accepts a wide range of payment forms, in over 30 currencies, including payment by credit card, PayPal, or check. If you print out an Order Form and mail it to us, we can only accept check, cash, or money order (payable to Michael D. Jenkins, in the case of checks or money orders).

  • ORDERING BY MAIL: If you prefer to order Small Business Advisor by mail, and to pay by check, cash, or money order, CLICK HERE to view and print out an order form, which contains our mailing address. We cannot accept credit card orders by mail.

  • SALES TAX AND VAT TAXES: For online purchases (through SWREG.ORG), sales tax will be charged to all residents of MN, CO, GA, IA, IL, NE, and UT or where a CD-ROM is shipped to an address in one of those states. Other states may soon start collecting sales on Internet sales as well, under a 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision. Foreign purchasers (Euro zone) will be charged any applicable VAT tax. If you order directly from the author (in Utah) by mail, sales tax is applicable only if you live in Utah or if the shipping address is in Utah. If you reside in any state that does not require our retailer (SWREG) to collect sales tax, no will be collected from you, but you may be required by state law to pay use tax on your purchase (except in states with no sales taxes: DE, MT, NH, and OR -- Alaska has sales and use tax in some boroughs, but not in Anchorage or Fairbanks).

  • SHIPPING AND HANDLING: We do not charge for shipping or handling. When we send you the Small Business Advisor software on a CD-ROM, it is sent by first-class mail and we bear the cost. However, if you are ordering the $19.95 single-state version, we charge $5.00 extra for the CD-ROM. (There is no extra charge for the CD-ROM when ordering the $99.00 Professional Version.) No CD-ROM will be sent, however, if your shipping address is in a foreign country or U.S. Territory.
