In this concise, tightly edited casebook, George K. Yin and Karen C. Burke emphasize core principles and policies to help students understand the overall structure and coherence of partnership taxation. The book’s organizational structure bridges concepts learned in the introductory income tax course and those presented in advanced tax courses, by offering a “building-block” approach that progresses from basic to complex partnership transactions. By emphasizing the policy choices that lend structure and coherence to the law, Partnership Taxationfacilitates an understanding of the overarching principles of partnership tax. Students learn the law from basic source material—the Code and regulations—as well as tightly edited cases and other guidance. Many problems, questions, and explanations supplement the presentation to guide students through the challenging material.
