General Explanation on Tax Legislation

The Joint Committee on Taxation publishes a valuable resource for tax attorneys that analyzes recently enacted tax legislation, titled General Explanation of Tax Legislation (also known as the "blue book") for every Congress. The Joint Committee on Taxation, is a nonpartisan committee that advises congressional committees considering tax legislation. While CCH publishes its own version (KF6369.G46 2011), the official version is available on the Joint Committee on Taxation's website.

The following are some of the tax acts analyzed in the General Explanation of Tax Legislation Enacted in the 111th Congress:

  • American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-5)
  • Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-3)
