CCH's Federal Taxation: Basic Principles (2014) is a
popular first-level tax course textbook that provides a clear concise
explanation of the fundamental tax concepts covering both tax planning
and compliance. Basic Principles strikes a perfect balance between the
AICPA model curriculum (focusing on business tax) and the demands
favored by most teachers (covering the fundamentals and building toward
the complex). The book is also a favorite in distant learning, because
of its clarity and direct approach--and it is also used in special
programs like CFP courses.
Basic Principles covers the core tax concepts and principles, including
individual taxation, gross income, deductions, credits, property
transactions, accounting methods and periods, deferred compensation,
retirement plans, partnerships, corporations, trusts and estates, and
tax planning for individuals.
It is written by an editorial board of tax teachers that includes
members who are currently active in the American Accounting Association,
American Taxation Association, the National Tax Challenge, CFP
education, CPE lectures, CPA preparation and other programs, so you can
be assured that the text is allied with real-world educational outcomes.
The Federal Taxation: Basic Principles (2014) is now available in an eBook format which you can download to your computer instantly.
