About the Book

This highly practical casebook introduces students to the ethical challenges that arise in federal tax practice with insights into how such issues are handled in the real world.  It provides clear explanations of the relevant rules and regulations that apply to tax lawyers and organizes the materials by the various functions a lawyer serves:  litigator, advisor and counselor. This is the only casebook currently available for law courses on professional responsibility in tax practice.

Look for these key features in the new edition:

New chapter on international tax practice
Effect of technology innovations, e.g., email and social media, on ethical tax practice, including issues such as ethical advertising and solicitation, outsourcing and fee sharing
Changes to Circular 230, the document governing practice before the IRS
