Overview

Long esteemed as a leader among tax casebooks, the Sixth Edition of Basic Federal Income Taxation represents a thorough updating and a complete revitalization of an old favorite with the addition of a new co-author, Peter J. Wiedenbeck.

Highly regarded for its authorship, intellectual depth, and insightful synthesis of historical and tax policy perspectives, Basic Federal Income Taxation features:

• sterling authorship by two of the leading scholars in the field
• a clear and consistent emphasis on case analysis, supported by a rich case selection and a mix of lightly edited principal cases and shorter case excerpts
• outstanding coverage, particularly on the topic of tax timing rules

Thoroughly updated throughout, the Sixth Edition offers:

• new co-author Peter J. Wiedenbeck, who brings a fresh perspective and new energy to the Sixth Edition
• a more streamlined format that readily adapts to typical 3-credit courses
• tighter editing of selected note cases
• revised and enhanced notes that provide more context to enrich student understanding of topics
• updated and expanded Teacher’s Manual

You’ll want to take a look at this important new revision. The Sixth Edition of Basic Federal Income Taxation offers the nuanced treatment and intellectual depth that you remember, but with a streamlined look and up-to-date feel that you have not seen before. With an expanded and updated Teacher’s Manual, Andrews and Wiedenbeck’s Sixth Edition supports your teaching in a whole new way.
