About the Book

This is the sixth edition of this casebook, updated May 01, 2018 and incorporating the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Visit http://elangdell.cali.org/ for the latest version and for revision history. This book is a basic income tax text. I intend this text to be suitable for a three-hour course for a class comprised of law students with widely different backgrounds.
