Product Description

This edition of the Federal Income Tax: Doctrine, Structure and Policy: Text, Cases, Problems casebook facilitates an understanding of federal income taxation law by setting out the “big picture” at the start. Chapters 1 and 2 provide basic discussion of tax policy analysis and the larger structure of income tax law, giving students a context through which to grapple with the detailed and complex issues that follow. Federal Income Tax: Doctrine, Structure and Policy explains legal rules through the use of examples. To aid the learning process, the authors also revisit difficult concepts several times in different contexts in the course of the book.

The authors organized this material chiefly around the conceptual underpinnings of the tax base, rather than solely around the traditional categories of gross income, deductions, credits, tax accounting, capital recovery, and so on. This structure avoids overly focusing students’ attention on mechanics rather than substance, demonstrating the fact that there are multiple ways to achieve particular end results.

The book provides numerous problems, which become increasingly complex as students progress through the course. Problems require students to analyze and apply the Code, Treasury Regulations, cases, and rulings. The authors thread theory and policy components throughout the text, problems, cases, and notes.

Federal Income Tax: Doctrine, Structure and Policy also deals briefly with the basics of entity taxation and international taxation, subjects more typically covered in advanced tax courses. The authors’ fresh approach thus adds the value of some exposure to these issues in the introductory tax course, especially as fewer students are taking such advanced courses.
