Bloomberg BNA Federal Tax Guide

Tax attorneys are already familiar with the CCH Master Tax Guide by Wolters Kluwer and RIA Federal Tax Handbook by Thomson Reuters. These tax almanacs, published annually, are resourceful because they contain information about deadlines, tax tables, tax rate schedules, and ACRS and MACRS depreciation tables. They also provide quick information regarding virtually every tax subject ranging from capital gains and losses to credits and deductions. The summaries provide examples to illustrate concepts and include references to primary and secondary sources for further research. Bloomberg BNA has recently published the first edition of the Federal Tax Guide, which has a table of contents and index and features references to the Bloomberg BNA Tax Management Portfolios (a series of over 500 mini-treatises covering different tax topics and are authored by tax attorneys or scholars) and the Bloomberg BNA Tax Practice Series. The law library now has the Federal Tax Guide (KF6301.A329B57) in the reference collection and on reserve.
