Overview

A Guide to Federal Income Taxation successfully integrates law and tax policy, providing students with a basic theoretical understanding of federal taxation in the major areas that would arise in most small practices. It also gives students insight into the workings of the Internal Revenue Service, and guides them, line by line, through all of the federal tax forms that a law office will encounter in daily practice. This guide does an exceptional job of bridging the gap between law and taxation to give future legal professionals the knowledge and skills needed to represent clients effectively in all areas of practice. Divided into seven chapters, the text is arranged to take the student from basic tax law and policy- including the elements of tax law research- through individual taxation, the taxation of all the various business formats, and, finally, the taxation of trusts and estates.
