New shipping and sales tax policy.

We tried including the shipping and tax in our book prices, but decided that it would be better if our shopping cart handled that instead. We are now charging sales taxes only to people who live in California. If you live in California, you will be charged taxes as if you purchased the books from our location in person in San Jose: 9.25%.

2018 Edition of How to Use Roth and IRA Accounts To Provide a Secure Retirement Now Available!

How to Use Roth and IRA Accounts To Provide a Secure Retirement has been updated to include up-to-date information regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, enacted last December by President Donald Trump.

We are now working on bringing you an updated Secrets of Tax Planning for Employee Stock Options and Real Estate Tax Handbook. We hope to release these books by the end of summer.

2018 Edition of Employee Stock Options, Executive Tax Planning Now Available!

The 2018 edition of Employee Stock Options, Executive Tax Planning is now available on Amazon and right here! I'll have a new cover image posted shortly to reflect the new title. I thought I could make one myself, but it turns out I need our graphic designer to do it. Oops!

The 2018 edition of How to Use Roth and IRA Accounts to Provide a Secure Retirement is at the publisher and will be available soon - possibly next week. The 2018 edition of the Real Estate Tax Handbook is being edited. I expect it to be available before the end of the summer. A new edition of Secrets of Tax Planning for Employee Stock Options is also in the works.

Michael Gray is retired

As of January 1, 2018, Michael Gray is retired from preparing tax returns and offering personal tax consultations. Michael Gray, CPA is still around, and available for consulting with other CPA firms. Our plan is to continue to offer all our email newsletters, at least through tax season, and to update our stock option books this year to reflect the new tax law passed by President Donald Trump at the end of last year.

We're Moving!

Michael Gray is retiring from public practice as a CPA at the end of the year. Michael Gray, CPA and Silicon Valley Publishing Co. will still be around, but we're moving to a home office. Hopefully, we can maintain a similar level of customer service in our new location. We definitely expect to be releasing new titles in the near future!

Welcome to the Silicon Valley Publishing Company Site!

Don't let the title fool you:  our Real Estate Tax Handbook, 2014 Edition, was just released in December of 2014 and includes all the latest updates to the tax laws. It only became available on Amazon.com in January. If you'd like the e-book version, Amazon is still the only place you can get that, though I'll look into offering it on this site as well.

After years of dealing with our book promotion using individual websites and pages, I finally created a website for our publishing company! This is still a work in progress, so if you see any errors, please let me know.

Since we prefer you buy directly from us, our books are always offered at a discount from the cover price. Our current sale prices are good at least until the end of February (2015).
