Federal Tax Procedure is the book for originally prepared for a course on Tax Procedure taught by Adjunct Professor Townsend at the University of Houston School of Law (through the Fall of 2015). The book and related materials contain text discussion, relevant Code Sections, and certain cases designed to encourage students to think about the Tax Procedure process. This is the book only. The related materials are on the Federal Tax Procedure Blog. The book is in electronic format (Adobe Acrobat PDF format) and is in two versions -- (1) a student edition (no footnotes); and (2) a practitioner edition (same as student edition but including the footnotes). This is the student edition. Both versions are available free on Mr. Townsend's Scholarly Papers page on SSRN. Mr. Townsend's practice is to update the PDF once a year in August to permit the book to be used in the academic year. Additional matters related to the book may be found on Mr. Townsend's Federal Tax Procedure Blog.
