Preface

PREFACE

OBJECTIVES AND USE

This text is designed for use in a first course in federal taxation for undergraduate accounting and business students. The text materials have been updated to reflect recent legislative, judicial, and administrative changes in the tax law through January 1, 2001.

A companion volume, Prentice Hall's Federal Taxation, 2002: Corporations, Partnerships, Estates, and Trusts, is published for use in the second course in federal taxation. A combined two-semester volume, Prentice Hall's Federal Taxation, 2002: Comprehensive, joins 14 chapters of the Individuals volume with 14 chapters of the Corporations, Partnerships, Estates, and Trusts volume. Either the Individuals text or the Comprehensive volume may be used with a one-term survey course for undergraduate or graduate students.

Our objective is to provide a readable format with a high level of technical content. We accomplish this through a process of continuous review, improvement, and clarification of the text, examples, and problem material. If you find what you believe is an error, please provide the item to one of the editors along with your comments. We maintain this level of content by focusing on primary topics and relegating minor exceptions to footnotes.

FEATURES

  • The 2002 Edition of Prentice Hall's Federal Taxation continues to include an online Multistate Income Taxation chapter. This chapter provides tax instructors with a vehicle to introduce students to a topic of increasing importance among tax practitioners. It provides an overview of state and local tax systems, as well as amore in-depth discussion of state income tax issues such as nexus, corporate filing options, the definition of state taxable income, allocation and apportionment, and state taxation of S Corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies. A complete set of assignment material is available with the chapter in addition to links to related Internet resources. Instructors and students may download the chapter, free of charge, from the web site that accompanies the book (www.prenhall.com/phtax).
  • Chapter 15: Tax Research. This chapter has been extensively updated to (1) provide more information on the steps in the research process and (2) explain the role of computers in tax research. A special supplement called How To Do Tax Research is available from the website at www.prenhall.com/phtax. This supplement further enhances coverage by explaining how to electronically research a problem based on an actual case.
  • A careful choice of topics. Users have found favor with the choice of topics and the extent of detail presented throughout the text. They are particularly pleased with our balance between exhaustive detail and too little detail for topics such as tax research, passive activity losses, and the alternative minimum tax.
  • Unique chapter organization. The Individuals volume differs from other texts on the market with its early coverage of property transactions, two chapters on the taxation of business entities, and a highly acclaimed chapter on tax planning using the Scholes and Wolfson approach.
  • Clear examples. Users regularly praise the clarity and number of examples in this text.
  • Margin notes. Students appreciate learning about more than just tax rules so we developed a series of comments in the margin to enrich their learning experience.

PEDAGOGY

• Key Points emphasize areas where students require repetition and reinforcement.
• Typical Misconceptions identify concepts that students are likely to misunderstand and help them correct their thinking before they take a wrong approach.
• Real World Examples provide facts and anecdotes about actual companies and real-life strategies.
• Additional Comments elaborate on material presented in the text.
• Self-Study Questions provide an in-text study guide. Each question is accompanied by a full solution.
• Historical Notes offer a comprehensive understanding of concepts by examining them in their historical context.
• Ethical Points focus on ethical questions that confront the tax practitioner, and are designated with an ethics icon.

  • Topic Reviews. Each chapter contains several topic reviews to help students organize their understanding of the material and aid in preparing for exams. Many of these reviews are in tabular form for easy reference.
  • Tax Planning Considerations. For the forward-looking part of the tax profession, students need to learn how to offer tax-saving advice for their clients. Our Tax Planning Considerations offer this insight once the basics of the rules have been established.
  • Compliance and Procedural Considerations. Forms, procedures, and timing are addressed in the Compliance and Procedural Consideration section at the end of each chapter.
  • Footnotes. An important component of "learning to learn" is knowing where to turn for authoritative information. We collected important references to the tax authorities in the footnotes for students to use as sources.
  • A full complement of assignment material. The typical format for each chapter includes: discussion questions, issue identification questions, problems, comprehensive problems, tax form/return preparation problems, case study problems, and tax research problems. Tax return problems that can be solved using TaxCut software are marked with an icon.
  • Oral and written communications. More emphasis is being placed on oral and written communication skills by the various accounting professional organizations (e.g., the American Institute of CPAs and the Accounting Education Change Commission). The case study problems at the end of each chapter are designed to meet this need by requiring students to consider a number of alternatives and present a written or oral solution to the problem. None of these case studies require the student to research the tax law.
  • Expanded coverage of ethics. Most chapters contain boxes labeled "What Would You Do in This Situation?" and a reprinting of the AICPA's Statements on Standards for Tax Services appears in an appendix expands our coverage of ethics. The boxes include many controversies that are as yet unresolved or currently being considered by the courts. They represent choices that may put the practitioner at odds with the client, and are grounded on ethical parameters discussed in various standards, codes of conduct, or Treasury Department circulars. Students are asked to indicate what they would do if they found themselves in the same situation as well as the ethical implications of their actions. The boxes and the Statements on Standards for Tax Services enhance the Ethical Point margin notes and the Case Studies already found in the text.
  • Stop & Think feature. These "speedbumps" ask students to stop and think about a business application of tax, or an extension of the basic material, at various points in the chapter. These are not "boxes," which typically fall outside the running text and can be bypassed. They are part of the text, complete with solutions to show students "how to do it," and identified by the icon you see here in the margin.
  • Issue identification questions. Part of the process of learning involves sorting out important information from unimportant details. In an area as detail-oriented as taxation, developing the ability to identify key issues is of paramount importance. We include questions at the end of each chapter that ask students to focus on the important questions that practitioners face on a daily basis.
