Federal Tax Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspective

Federal Tax Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspective

By Stephen Utz

Federal Tax Law by Stephen Utz is a concise, user-friendly, accessible casebook with practice-ready features and robust online content.

Featuring a stimulating, challenging, yet transparent presentation, Federal Tax Law retains the subtlety of classic texts while commenting explicitly on overlapping elements of statutory, regulatory and other sources of income tax law. This approach, combined with innovative online companion materials, allows students to see connections between policy and real-world practice.
