Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Last updated in 1997, this reference for business and law school students and practicing accountants and attorneys is divided into four broad sections: the tax research environment, primary sources of federal tax law, using secondary sources as research tools, and implementing the research tools. Case studies, exercises, and discussion questions involve the student in the material. Emphasis is placed on computer-based resources. Abundant appendices list relevant forms, documents, and data. Some familiarity with the fundamentals of the federal income and transfer tax law is assumed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"A highly specialized, concise yet comprehensive tax research textbook. The best out there."

"The Federal Tax Research book is a comprehensive text that explains the primary and secondary sources which make up the body of tax law and the tax research services available to professionals. It is appropriate for a senior-level or a graduate class in tax research by accounting or law students."
