The information in this How to Use guide describes the contents, organization and special features of the STANDARD, and the many ways in which it can be used. Understanding the STANDARD is key to getting the maximum benefit from this tool. The IRC Volumes contain the complete, of f cial text of the basic tax law-the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Amendment notes following each subsection of the Code describe changes made in the text since 1954. Code Volume I also includes a Topical Index and Table of Contents for the Internal Revenue Code and a Source Notes-Finding Lists division, where current Code Sec- tions can be traced back to the 1939 Code. Code Volume II contains both related stat- utes that affect federal taxation but that do not appear in the Internal Revenue Code and amendments to the 1939 Code. The Code is kept current via weekly updates. IRC Volume I contains the following f nding tables. 1. Table I: Cross-Reference Tables from the 1939 to the 1954 Code. 2. Table II: Cross-Reference Tables from the 1954 to the 1939 Code . 3.
