Professor Jeffrey H. Kahn recently published Principles of Corporate Taxation, part of the West® Concise Hornbooks series. He wrote the text with his father, Douglas A. Kahn, the Paul G. Kauper Professor of Law at the University of Michigan School of Law and Terrence G. Perris, Partner and Taxation Practice Group Leader at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey.
The text serves as a study aide to supplement a student’s casebook and notes to further an understanding of corporate taxation. It is a contracted version of his Hornbook, Corporate Income Taxation (6th ed.). The book begins by examining the tax consequences of a corporation’s making distributions to its shareholders either on account of or in redemption of their stock. It then provides as much depth and coverage as are consistent with the “concise” nature of the book, guided by the scope of topics that are covered in most corporate tax courses. And it does it all in 364 short pages.
Congratulations to Professor Kahn for writing such an invaluable and concise resource for law students in corporate taxation or business planning courses.
