The Eleventh Edition continues to provide an engaging and insightful introduction to the federal estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes, placing leading cases in historical context and exploring their practical significance and policy implications. It reflects statutory changes in rates and exemptions under the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, including the introduction of "portability" of the unified credit between spouses. The new edition also addresses recent amendments to estate tax regulations concerning the deductibility of claims and administration expenses and alternate valuation date, as well as judicial decisions concerning defined value formula gifts, transfers with retained life estates, and family limited partnerships.

The goal of this casebook is to present transfer taxation to law students in a clear, logical, and engaging manner. Although tax is statutory, the primary theory underlying this text is that case law makes tax law understandable to students. The primary objective is to have students learn and, therefore, the book does not attempt to hide the ball, as the material itself is difficult enough. The taxes are introduced in order of enactment - estate, gift, and GST - underscoring for students how infirmities in one tax can lead to another tax and how understanding tax history can aid in understanding tax. Each of the fifteen chapters begins with an overview of the chapter's main points and materials, and concludes with study problems for students to test their understanding. The core material is case law: lightly-edited cases with extensive notes that are both explanatory and exploratory. Case law, however, is not wholly sufficient. Therefore, this text also incorporates Treasury and private practice perspectives to give a fuller view of tax law today. For example, the book has several examples of trust provisions to illustrate how lawyers translate statutory and regulatory commands into documents for their clients. The casebook is accompanied by a Teacher's Manual.

Discusses selected income tax issues, but only in contrast with, or as an adjunct to, a discussion of the estate and gift tax treatment of those issues. This book is not an estate planning book or a comprehensive guide to the federal tax implications of all gratuitous transfers. Contains sections on deductions and credits and on the generation skipping transfer.

The use of the paragraph system makes it easy for a teacher to selectively assign materials. Other teacher-friendly features include an in-depth teacher's manual that provides answers to all problems throughout the volume, and a discussion of planning opportunities throughout the various chapters.
