This title is one of six releases from the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. United States International Taxation embodies the dual goals established for the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series: to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. To this end, the text relies very little on the often-times laborious analysis of cases and other sources that are secondary to the Code and the regulations. Instead, each chapter provides an overview of the substantive content, with emphasis on important issues that are not apparent from the language of the Code and regulations. This book contains teaching materials for law school courses in the United States federal income taxation of persons engaged in cross- border activities and transactions. It contains 21 separate Units that address fundamental concepts of residency and source, the taxation of United States persons (citizens, residents, and domestic corporations) on their activities within the United States, and the safeguard rules in place to curtail potentially abusive tax avoidance in the international context.

Federal Income Tax, a Contemporary Approach

Author: SAMUEL A. DONALDSON,Donald Tobin

Publisher: West Academic Publishing

ISBN: 9781634604901


Page: 1100

View: 5332

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.
