Course Description:
Pre-requisite:  ACCT 4013.    We will study tax research methodology, internal revenue code, regulations and rulings, judicial interpretations, citatory, and tax services using case studies.  Students will learn how to use the Research Institute of America's online tax resource – Checkpoint.  This is an optional course for accounting majors to satisfy accounting elective requirements.  Students need to understand income tax research if they go into public or private accounting.  Taxes affect most business decisions; therefore a professional must understand how to research tax questions and their implications on business transactions. The overall course objective is to nurture a philosophy of continual learning in the "Information Age".  Taxation continually evolves as economic, political, social, and equity concerns drive our lawmakers.  Students must learn basic assumptions and how to find, analyze and incorporate annual changes.
