Federal Income Tax covers basic principles of the federal income tax, including but not limited to the basic structure of the federal individual income tax. The primary objectives of the course are to familiarize you with those substantive principles; to introduce you to the format and content of the Internal Revenue Code, as well as related Treasury regulations, IRS guidance documents, and case law concerning basic federal income tax matters; and to give you experience working with a complicated statutory and regulatory scheme to resolve legal questions.
