Abstract

The Student Edition of the Income Tax Act is designed to supplement tax courses taught at law and business schools. It can also serve as a convenient reference tool for lawyers, accountants, and others who work in the tax field. The book is comprised of two elements: selected provisions of the federal Income Tax Act and a tax teaching tool called ‘How to Manage a Difficult Tax Partner.’ The second element - the ‘tax novella’ - is meant to focus a tax student’s attention on the most critical ingredients that combine to form the complex stew of tax law. The text incorporates seven core tax principles, one in each chapter, that animate the tax rules throughout the Act. The tax novella is also designed to amuse and entertain readers and draw them into learning tax law: readers are asked to try to answer problems at the end of each chapter to ensure the survival of the story's protagonist, Jason Lumberlane.The attached excerpt provides the first three chapters of How to Manage a Difficult Tax Partner.

Keywords: tax law, income tax
