This title is one of six releases from the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. United States International Taxation embodies the dual goals established for the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series: to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. To this end, the text relies very little on the often-times laborious analysis of cases and other sources that are secondary to the Code and the regulations. Instead, each chapter provides an overview of the substantive content, with emphasis on important issues that are not apparent from the language of the Code and regulations. This book contains teaching materials for law school courses in the United States federal income taxation of persons engaged in cross-border activities and transactions. It contains 21 separate Units that address fundamental concepts of residency and source, the taxation of United States persons (citizens, residents, and domestic corporations) on their activities within the United States, and the safeguard rules in place to curtail potentially abusive tax avoidance in the international context.

Two significant complications affect the taxation of property transactions. The first complication is the special treatment of capital gains and losses. The second complication arises from the time value of money. This book aims to provide students with an appreciation for these two significant complexities through the descriptive materials and problems presented. Chapter 1 introduces the concepts of basis and realization that are fundamental to the taxation of all transactions involving property. Chapter 2 follows with the effects of taxing gains and losses from capital assets differently from ordinary gains and losses. Chapter 3 deals with liabilities, which are essentially the opposite of assets or property, so that they can be considered negative property. Chapter 4 covers the rules applicable to the capitalization of costs incurred in the creation or acquisition of property and the recovery of those costs through a variety of expensing, amortization, and depreciation provisions. Chapter 5 covers non-recognition transactions (other than transfers involving partnerships, corporations or trusts) in which gain or loss is not recognized on disposition but is deferred through the mechanism of substituted basis. Chapter 6 deals with deferred compensation issues and other special problems arising in executive compensation arrangement using employer stock or stock options that reflect the lure of capital gain treatment. Chapter 7 covers the complexities that arise from the cliché that property is a bundle of rights, particularly when the ownership and long-term right to possession is divided under a lease or similar arrangement. Finally, Chapter 8 covers a number of special provisions that affect the deductibility of losses, including the wash sales rules, limitations on related party transactions, the at-risk and passive loss rules, and losses arising in certain leasing transactions.

The principles of accounting and finance directly extend to contract issues, torts, business and securities matters, taxation issues, partnership disputes, gift and estate matters, to name only a partial list. These areas of jurisprudence are often based significantly on substantive financial questions, and their measurement can be the heart of the entire matter. The application of broad accounting principles to countless business transactions requires an understanding of the objectives of financial reporting and the needs of the users of financial information. Contrary to popular belief, accounting is not a mathematical formula or calculation, but rather an organized system that logically summarizes business transactions into useable information that is meaningful to management, creditors, business investors and other stakeholders. This text takes readers through the system of accounting and the development of financial statements. Complexities and limitations of accounting information are explored, culminating in a study of ratio analysis of financial statements to glean relevant insights. The objective of this introductory study of accounting is to provide a broad, workable knowledge base that will facilitate the use of accounting information as it relates to the practice of law.

This title is part of the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. Employee Benefits Law: Qualification Rules and ERISA Requirements, Second Edition, differs from other employee benefits casebooks and practicing legal education materials in the following ways: • The book makes a clear delineation of the qualification requirements of the IRC applicable to employee benefit plans versus ERISA requirements. As such, most of the materials focus on pension and profit sharing plans. However, the tax rules applicable to welfare benefit plans and nonqualified deferred compensation plans are also discussed. • The book places a strong emphasis on planning and policy, focusing on the adoption, maintenance, and correction of such plans. • The substantive qualifications of the IRC are discussed in full. ERISA's fiduciary, enforcement, reporting, and disclosure standards are also set forth. Sophisticated realistic problems are an integral part of the materials, and are included throughout. These problems will require careful analysis and application of code and regulation provisions, administrative pronouncements, case law, and other relevant sources. Perhaps more important for a graduate tax program, the problems not only require careful analysis, but the application requires dealing with situations when the most careful reading of the materials does not supply an answer. An additional, in-depth, take-home problem may be used as the basis for class discussion or a graded written assignment. Employee Benefits Law is divided into two sections. Part 1 addresses the specific qualification requirements of the tax code applicable to all employee retirement plans, from both the employee and employer perspective. Part II addresses tax rules applicable to welfare benefits and nonqualified deferred compensation plans and ERISA rules applicable generally to all employee benefits plans. Thereafter, the ERISA rules applicable to employee retirement plans and welfare plans are covered.
