LAW105  B  FEDERAL INCOME TAX I

Course Description
Tax is so pervasive that you risk malpractice if you skip it. Moreover, basic Federal Income Tax I is more an English than a math course. This course introduces the basic concepts of, and helps students learn to solve problems with, the federal tax code and regulations. Subjects include: whether, to whom, and when income is subject to taxation; capital recovery; business deductions; and capital gains. The course is not designed for students with a strong tax background, assumes no business or accounting knowledge, and has two fundamental purposes: first, to teach basic tax avoidance strategies; and second, to help students learn to use statutory materials to solve legal problems.
