The world of Subchapter J is imbued with mystique and, many commentators would argue, is not readily discernable—at least until now. Five talented authors, each with a wealth of practical and theoretical expertise, have joined forces and authored a new textbook to make the income taxation of trusts and estates accessible to all. This book is specifically designed to be user-friendly and will help students seeking mastery of this area with a GPS of sorts that will help them navigate this challenging landscape.
Rather than delving too deeply into case law (a common practice in other textbooks), it highlights general concepts and ideas, focusing intently on those techniques and procedures that twenty-first-century practitioners are employing today with their clients. In addition, each chapter offers a plethora of "real world" problems that students can solve and, with this knowledge base, commence practice. The Income Taxation of Trusts and Estates, Second Edition is divided into nine chapters and is designed for a three-credit tax course for both accounting and law students.
In the second edition, the authors have added additional problems along with sample Form 1041s to make the course material both more manageable and practical for students. Furthermore, in this increasingly global world, there is now a chapter that addresses foreign trusts.
