Principles of Corporate Taxation

Author: Douglas A. Kahn
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314184961
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Law

The book is not organized according to the chronological life of a corporation. Instead, the book begins by examining the tax treatment of a withdrawal of property from an existing corporation. The reason for choosing that organization is that the concepts embodied in such topics as dividends, earnings and profits, and stock redemptions are the fundamental building blocks on which the more complex provisions of corporate taxation rest. The authors explain the technical operation of the various Code provisions and provide numerous examples illustrating how they are applied and how several provisions must be read in concert with each other.
