Per title, I'm looking for legal and tax foundation books to assist as part of reference set.  We're *attempting* (much drama with the seller) to close next week on our first real estate rental property.  

Normally, the internet would suffice but given the depth and breadth of information impacting legal law for the state, I'd like to kill a few trees and get a book.  

NOLO has a fairly well reviewed book and does state that it focuses on the 50 states but I don't necessarily trust Amazon reviews.  

Any recommendations for either landlord law for Alabama or tax laws for landlording?
