This textbook takes an engaging approach to learning individual income tax. Long-standing rules are set forth in a simple, clear, and concise manner and paired with many examples. From this solid foundation, students can begin to engage in the material. First, where appropriate, students can attempt to solve numerical problems. Second, students can apply the rules to interesting and thought-provoking fact patterns, in some situations (simulating actual practice) conducting additional research to better understand how the courts have applied certain rules. Given this approach, students can develop analytical skills that will be invaluable to them when they enter the practice of law.
