Edward A. Morse (Creighton), Important Developments in Federal Income Taxation (2020) (142 pages):
This outline covers significant developments in federal income taxation arising during the past year. It offers a selective treatment focusing on items likely to interest practitioners and advisors within a broad range of professional practices.Tax Court decisions (regular and memorandum) and appellate cases receive greater attention on account of their legal significance; Tax Court summary opinions and unreported appellate cases are omitted. Other trial decisions in the district court and claims court receive only limited attention due to their comparatively limited impact on tax law development. A few noteworthy administrative developments are also included, but such discussion is not comprehensive.
Some employment tax cases are also noted in part VIII, and part IX concludes with a high-level summary of tax provisions in the CARES act and other recent tax legislation. This version includes updates through November 30, 2020.
