Income Taxation

Law 280






This course covers basic issues involved in the federal taxation of individuals, including the definition of taxable income, deductibility of certain business and personal expenses, and computation of gains and losses on sales and exchanges.  We also cover some basic finance concepts such as debt versus equity, insolvency, and loan interest that will be useful to students who don't go on to specialize in tax.

Please check Sakai for the readings and other assignments for your first day/week of class and any other information your professor may have posted.

No Prerequisites. No accounting or business background is necessary.
