TEACHER'S MANUAL for Tax Controversies--Practice and Procedure

This casebook teaches the mechanics of tax procedure, while stimulating students to think about the broader issues that underlie its structural framework. This edition of Tax Controversies: Practice and Procedure begins with an overview of civil tax procedure and an in-depth discussion of the federal tax gap and the many approaches to closing it. Several of the next chapters focus on stages in the chronology of a typical tax controversy, from examination through eventual litigation. In addition, two chapters focus on tax research and representing tax clients and a new chapter addresses ethics issues in tax cases. An underlying theme - the extent to which the current procedural rules encourage or discourage voluntary compliance with the federal tax system - runs throughout the book. This Teacher's Manual provides detailed answers to the problem sets, suggests approaches to the material, and highlights topics more suitable for an advanced course.
