Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course examines the underlying structural premises of the federal income tax as it applies to individuals. It addresses such critical questions as: What is income? Whose income is it? When is it income? What income is eligible for preferential rates? The course will also explore the different roles played by Congress, the Treasury, the Internal Revenue Service, and the courts in developing tax law. Our primary focus will be on the concepts, context, and policy aims that underpin the federal income tax system. Cases and problems form the background for discussion. There are no pre-requisites. The course is a prerequisite for most advanced tax courses. The course is aimed at the general legal practitioner as well as the future tax and business law specialist. In addition to a final exam, there will be regular student assessments including problem sets, and unannounced in-class quizzes.
