This casebook teaches the mechanics of tax procedure, while stimulating students to think about the broader issues that underlie its structural framework. This edition of Tax Controversies: Practice and Procedure begins with an overview of civil tax procedure and an in-depth discussion of the federal tax gap and the many approaches to closing it. Several of the next chapters focus on stages in the chronology of a typical tax controversy, from examination through eventual litigation. In addition, two chapters focus on tax research and representing tax clients and a new chapter addresses ethics issues in tax cases. An underlying theme - the extent to which the current procedural rules encourage or discourage voluntary compliance with the federal tax system—runs throughout the book.

  • Suitable for J.D. or LL.M. students, or for use in a tax clinic.
  • This edition contains new chapters on summons enforcement, the U.S. Tax Court, the collection due process procedures, "innocent spouse" relief, and ethics issues.
  • Each casebook chapter includes theory questions and a set of fact-based problems to encourage strategic thinking. Several chapters include optional drafting problems.
  • Teacher's Manual provides detailed answers to the problem sets, suggests approaches to the material, and highlights topics more suitable for an advanced course.
  • Separate Documents Volume, Tax Controversies: Statutes, Regulations, and Other Materials, is also available.
