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.

Upcoming Seminar: Finding a Paper Topic Using BNA

Finding a topic on which to write your law review note or upper level writing paper is often the hardest part. On September 1, 2011 from 4:50 p.m. to 5:50 p.m. in Room A059 (in the library), Kevin Skrzysowski of BNA will speak on Locating Paper Topics Using BNA Publications. Kevin will demonstrate how to use U.S. Law Week to find Circuit Splits as well as using Hot Topics and other features of various BNA databases to find paper topics.

Our law school subscribes to many BNA databases, including those dealing with Health Care, International Law, Labor and Employment Law, Environmental Law, Corporate Governance and many other subjects.

The library is hosting this seminar as part of its Research Certificate Seminar Series, so attendees will get Research Certificate Seminar credit.
