Or, receive both your State and Federal Tax Printers free (each and $89.99 value) when ten or more members of your investment club join.
Remember: each investment club must file an informational return with the IRS, no matter how large or small your club may be. Be sure to file yours before the April 15th deadline. Purchase and download your 2007 Tax Printers today.
If you're not using ICLUBcentral Tax Printer software, your return may be rejected! ICLUBcentral is the only provider of state-approved investment club tax preparation software.

Remember group projects back in high school? I was never a big fan. It seemed that there was always a member of the group who didn't complete his or her work on time - or perhaps, at all. And it also seemed that one member (usually me) ended up doing the majority of the work. So, when the words, "We're going to work in groups on this project," came from my teacher's mouth, I'd be filled with dread.
But that's just me. For other people, working with others is a boon. They are relieved not to have to "go it alone," and they do their best work when they are focused on a single aspect of a project. (And besides, we're not in high school anymore.)
Luckily, there's an investment club format that matches either personality type. The enthusiastic extrovert who cheers on the group effort would likely choose a Pooled-Assets investment club, while his or her more introverted, independent counterpart might go with the Self-Directed investment club. Like many decisions in life, the answer isn't clear-cut - it's up to the individual. But isn't it nice to know you have a choice?
