Companion website : http://wps.prenhall.com/bp_pope_fedtax_2011/150/38416/9834626.cw/index.html Course Description, Purpose, Goals, and Objectives: The purpose of this course is for students to acquire an understanding of the concepts of taxable income, deductions, and alternative tax treatments as they apply directly and indirectly to various entities, including partnerships, corporations, and S Corporations. In addition, a basic review of federal estate and gift taxation will be reviewed. The main topics to be covered in this course are: (1) corporate income taxation, (2) corporate redemptions and dividends, (3) partnership formation, income and deductions, (4) S Corporation taxable income and deductions, (5) gift and estate taxation, and (6) entity selection and planning. Class Format: The class will consist of lectures and discussions (i. e. you will be called on in class), assigned readings, exercises and problems, and a research paper. Students are responsible for all material assigned, material covered in class, and any announcements made in class or via e-mail, such as changes in reading assignments, changes in homework assignments, changes in due dates, etc. Always bring your textbook to class, since we will go over the homework in class and I will often refer to illustration in the text. Students are expected to attend class and to participate in classroom discussions of assigned cases, exercises and problems. Regular class attendance and good class notes are essential for successful completion of this course. Students are expected to have read the assigned material and have reviewed assigned homework prior to the date the material is covered in class. Class interaction is to
