|Question 298: When is the 5th edition of Who’s the Employer coming out?|
Answer: A year or so after I publish an edition of Who’s the Employer, I start getting questions about when the next edition will be available. Well, it’s been three years since I released the 4th edition, and it’s high time for a new one.
I’m excited to announce that the 5th edition of Who’s the Employer -- A Guide to Employee and Aggregation Issues Affecting Qualified Plans is at the press. This is the latest version of the complete reference book on controlled groups, affiliated service groups, leased employees, employee status, and related issues. The print version should be available by the first week of January and electronic versions by the end of January.
A lot has happened since I published the 4th edition in 2005. The 5th edition is completely updated. Major updates include:
I’ve begun accepting pre-orders at a 10% discount from the regular price. Click here to pre-order online by credit card. Click here for a form you can mail in with a check. But do it today because this 10% discount expires January 7, 2009.
Oh, by the way, here's one more question that pops up: Can I get an autographed copy? I’m surprised and flattered I get that question, but I do. Yes, if you really want it. If you want my John Hancock on your copy, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
