A thorough, up-to-date presentation of estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes, as well as income taxation of trusts and estates and income in respect of a decedent. The book also includes a thorough presentation of valuation issues. Each of the taxes is discussed independently so that a teacher may start with either of the taxes or, if he or she wishes, skip one. The use of the paragraph system makes it easy for a teacher to selectively assign materials. Other teacher-friendly features include an in-depth teacher’s manual that provides answers to all problems throughout the volume, and a discussion of planning opportunities throughout the various chapters. The 24th edition covers major legislation enacted in December of 2010 as well as significant judicial and administrative decisions since the prior edition.
