With an emphasis on tax planning, Federal Taxation of Wealth Transfers, Second Edition, integrates problems with statutes, regulations, and cases to create a highly teachable and student-friendly casebook.

This text provides an effective treatment of estate and gift taxation that includes:

  • a problem-based approach that emphasizes planning and integrates statutes, cases, and regulations
  • a logical and flexible five-part organization that can be reordered to adapt to different teaching approaches
  • clear introductory and background notes that provide context for cases and problems
  • focused teaching objectives that include problem-solving, understanding statutory construction, and developing policy analysis skills
  • a manageable overall length for a 3-credit basic wealth transfer tax class
  • an in-depth Teacher’s Manual that includes analyses of all of the cases and problems

With new problems and expanded text, the Second Edition also offers:

  • new principal cases deciding on family limited partnerships, such as Strangi IV and Kimbell v. U.S., with discussion of Estate of Bongard and Estate of Rosen in the note material
  • additional major cases regarding:
    • post-death and post gift events
    • buy-sell agreements
    • valuation of lottery payments
    • continuing debate about the estate tax

Ideally suited to teaching estate and gift taxation, Professor Willbanks’ problem-based pedagogy, with its flexible organization and integrated approach, may well be the most effective method available for teaching this course.
