New Resources on Tax Law – April’s Subject of the Month

Welcome to the first in our new series on resources in the Gould Law Library! Each month, we will highlight a particular legal topic and discuss some of our newer resources on the topic.
This month, as we file our taxes, we are highlighting print resources on tax law.

Our collection holds numerous tax law books that have been vetted by our experienced librarians as reliable and authorative. In the past few months, we acquired several new print resources on taxation, such as:
Call Number: KF6276.62012 .T39 2013 (Second Floor)

Tax Legislation 2012 : American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 : Law, Explanation & Analysis

Call Number: KF6369 .C43 2012 (Second Floor)

Federal income taxation : a law student's guide to the leading cases and concepts / by Marvin A. Chirelstein, Lawrence A. Zelenak

Call Number: KF6324 .C67 2012 (Second Floor)

When tackling complex legal issues, it is often helpful to have a reference book to guide you. Reference books are a different breed of book, as they are intended to give basic, introductory information about a topic, term, or issue, while non-reference books go into far more detail and nuance about a subject. Here are few of our most recently acquired reference resources on tax:

Federal income taxation of individuals in a nutshell / by John K. McNulty, Daniel J. Lathrope
Call Number: KF6369.3 .M3 2012 (Second Floor)

Federal income taxation of partners and partnerships in a nutshell / by Karen C. Burke
Call Number: KF6452.Z9 B87 2013 (Second Floor)

Questions and Answers : federal estate and gift taxation / Elaine Hightower Gagliardi
Call Number: KF6572 .G34 2013 (Reserves)

Tax reform : a reference handbook / James John Jurinski
Call Number: KF6289 .J87 2012 (Second Floor)

How did I find all these new resources? I visited our online catalog, which you can find here: I searched by keyword – “tax” – and arranged the results list by date. You can find more books like the ones listed here by doing the same.

Check back soon for our next blog post.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
