This spring I am teaching the course on Taxation in Hauser 102 from 10:20 until 11:40 on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays.

My office hours during the semester will be on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:30 until 5:00, on Wednesdays from 1:30 until 3:00, and by appointment.

The class scheduled for Monday, April 1, is cancelled. A make-up class will be held on Friday, April 5.


We will be using a casebook I am writing. The first three chapters will be available prior to the start of the semester and will carry us through the first half of the semester. I anticipate having the remainder of the book available by the end of the sixth week. The book is fully updated to reflect the changes made by Congress in November of 2017, cases are fully edited, and there are notes, questions, and problems in the assignments. The materials will be made available through Canvas in both pdf and Microsoft Word formats. If you would like a hard copy, please let my administrative assitant know. The table of contents to the book and the syllabus for the course will be available only on Canvas. You must also have a copy of the Internal Revenue Code and Income Tax Regulations (selected provisions) dated 2018 or later. This book, published by Walters Kluwer, is available at the bookstore and elsewhere.

Your grade on the final exam will determine your grade in the class. Grades will not be adjusted for performance in the classroom.
