Tax Students: BNA’s U.S. Tax Overview and Quick Answers Can Help

Whether you are taking personal income tax, corporate tax or estate tax, BNA’s U.S. Tax Overview can help.  It is an easy to understand outline of U.S. federal tax law written by law professors.  It even covers U.S. international taxation.  Students can run a keyword search for a particular concept, or drill down the outline to find what they need.

BNA’s Tax and Accounting Center also offers Fast Answers for federal tax.  Fast Answers can be searched by keyword, or you can look at a list of topics (gross income, deductions, credits, etc.)  and subtopics (eg. for gross income: assignment of income, claim of right doctrine, discharge of indebtedness, etc.) and the Frequently Asked Questions for each subtopic.  Fast Answers are brief and written in clear language.

When you are off campus, you will need to enter your name, CSU Id and Scholar PIN to access these databases.
