Designed to help students quickly pull together the entire subject area for end-of-semester review, the textbook provides a sense of perspective about where a topic fits within the federal income tax scheme. While the present income tax is the main object of interest in this book, Federal Income Taxation also includes an explanation of the often-discussed consumption tax concept and contrasts the two in a note at the end of the volume.
