Federal Income Taxation, Second Edition (Casebook)

Federal Income Taxation, Second Edition (Casebook) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many great features make this a valuable source for students:

- A core text (approx. 500 pages) covers leading cases and explains the substantive tax law that is essential to a basic understanding of federal income tax law and principles

- Cells self-contained, optional units at the end of each chapter supplement the core text by presenting additional material and treating a small number of topics in greater detail

- Notes and questions provide background information and place the cases and statutes in context

- More than 100 problems throughout the core text and cells challenge students to apply theory to specific situations

- A stellar author team brings years of scholarship and teaching experience to the material

- A detailed Teacher's Manual provides comments and suggestions for teaching both the core and the cell material as well as answers to all of the questions and problems in the casebook

The Second Edition has been carefully updated with great new information:

- The Supreme Court's recent decision in Banks replaces the older Clarks and Kenseth cases (Chapter 10)

- In response to popular demand, Supreme Court's decision in Cottage Savings has been added as a principal case (Chapter 3, part B)

- Expanded and updated coverage of the AMT (Chapter 8)

- Additional coverage of statutory developments such as the election to deduct state sales taxes (in lieu of state income taxes), the treatment of contingent attorney's fees as above-the-line deductions, and the introduction of several consumer energy credits (e.g., for the purchase of hybrid cars)

Book News Annotation:

This book is a text for law students studying income tax law. The intent of the book is to introduce students to concepts fundamental of the current income tax and to plausible future versions of the tax. Also, this text is intended to help students develop skill in interpreting complex statutes and regulations and to learn the details of a limited number of income tax provisions of importance. The authors, both affiliated with the Duke University School of Law include more than 75 cases, rulings, and similar materials in the text, including most of the classic cases and more recent cases, as well.
