Introduction to Taxation

Author: William D. Popkin
Publisher: LexisNexis
ISBN: 9780769882000
Release Date: 2013-12-11
Genre: Law

This edition of Introduction to Taxation was originally published as Fundamentals of Federal Income Tax Law. In writing this book, the author was guided by a view that as income tax law becomes increasingly complex the best approach to its teaching is to return to basics. Thus, Part I contains a concise treatment of federal income tax law focuses on the fundamentals. References throughout to supplementary materials allow for more in-depth exploration of issues. The Fifth Edition contains more than 25 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. The name change for the book reflects the addition of Part II which allows professors to expand an introductory course to include survey materials on taxes other than the federal income tax. Part II addresses property taxes, the estate and gift tax, the social security payroll tax, the taxation of trusts and estates, corporate taxation, international tax issues, and multistate taxation. A Teacher's Manual is also available for professors.

Federal Income Tax a Contemporary Approach

Author: SAMUEL A. DONALDSON
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 1634604903
Release Date: 2018-08-24
Genre:

Completely updated to reflect the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Third Edition of Federal Income Tax: A Contemporary Approach continues its successful integration of several modern platforms to introduce students to the federal income taxation of individuals. As before, the book takes three passes through the system, each in increasing detail. The first pass, in two short chapters, introduces the basic structure of the federal income tax through the computation of taxable income. It lets students see the overall structure early in their study and gives context to new concepts as they are introduced. The second pass, consuming two larger chapters, walks through the concepts of gross income and deductions, respectively. The final pass, consuming seven chapters, then builds on the material from the first four chapters, considering exclusions, timing issues, characterization, and advanced discussion of property transactions, personal expenses, dual-use expenses, and tax shelters. The text includes dozens of review questions, hundreds of self-assessment questions, and nearly 100 detailed problems for class discussion, all of which require students to apply Code and Regulation provisions to real-life fact patterns. The book also includes links to several instructional videos to reinforce student comprehension. Like other titles in the Interactive Casebook Series, the accompanying electronic version gives student immediate access to cited cases, statutes, and articles.
