Welcome to ElderCare Online's Tax Planning Assistant 2000
ElderCare Online's Tax Planning Assistant contains a collection of useful forms, instructions, publications, tips and links to help you research and file your 2000 taxes. The Taxpayer Help and Education tax tips are provided directly from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Please note that the downloadable documents may not be valid for any other tax years.

Check with your legal or financial advisor to make sure that you file all of the appropriate forms. If a form is included in the TaxPak00, it does not mean that you must file that form.
