Product Description

In writing this Introduction to Taxation casebook, the author was guided by a view that as tax law becomes increasingly complex, the best approach to its teaching is to return to basics. Thus, this concise treatment of Federal Income Tax Law focuses on the fundamentals. Despite the shorter length of this casebook compared to others on the subject, there is adequate material for a four-hour course. References throughout to supplementary materials allows for more in-depth exploration of issues.

Introduction to Taxation contains more than 25 new notes about statutory interpretation, reflecting that tax law is an ideal vehicle for statutory interpretation. The materials also convey two key points about the legislative process as it pertains to tax law: (a) tax law is not static but is ever changing; and (b) tax law is strongly influenced by special interest group pressures on our legislative body.
