Course Description

This course is meant to simulate the formulation and delivery of tax advice and its implementation in a variety of domestic and commercial settings. We will provide students with the opportunity to evaluate and apply pertinent tax and related general law in relation to actual or simulated business advisory circumstances from the practice professional’s perspective. It will be organized around several case studies structured in a modular format to reflect the influence of formative problem solving and tax analysis on subsequent steps or transactions, in some cases with reference to changing facts and circumstances that require the planner to re-evaluate original planning that addressed less developed circumstances or did not or could not anticipate subsequent developments. The purpose of the course is to provide students with the opportunity explore various substantive areas of the income tax law and general law antecedents through the lens of simulated problem solving in a practical business context.
