Federal Income Taxation

This version of Federal Income Tax (FIT) is intended for those going into transactional law and who intend to take Corporate Tax in the future. This course presents the fundamental principles underlying the federal income tax and surveys many of the basic issues, but with an emphasis on transactions. In contrast to other FIT courses, we will spend more time on debt, depreciation, income-shifting, interest, installment sales, and financial instruments. This course also considers economic and policy issues of taxation.
