Federal Taxation Basic Principles is a popular first-level tax course textbook that provides a clear concise explanation of the fundamental tax concepts covering both tax planning and compliance. Basic Principles strikes a perfect balance between the AICPA model curriculum (focusing on business tax) and the demands favored by most teachers (covering the fundamentals and building toward the complex). The book is also a favorite in distant learning, because of its clarity and direct approach--and it is also used in special programs like CFP courses.
Basic Principles covers the core tax concepts and principles, including individual taxation, gross income, deductions, credits, property transactions, accounting methods and periods, deferred compensation, retirement plans, partnerships, corporations, trusts and estates, and tax planning for individuals.
It is written by an editorial board of tax teachers that includes members who are currently active in the American Accounting Association, American Taxation Association, the National Tax Challenge, CFP education, CPE lectures, CPA preparation and other programs, so you can be assured that the text is allied with real-world educational outcomes.
