Call Number: KF6369 .C43 2012
ISBN: 9781599419374

Highly acclaimed as both a supplemental text and a law student self-help aid, Federal Income Taxation focuses on the conceptual aspects of federal income tax to improve student understanding of this complex subject. 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.
