INCOME TAX FUNDAMENTALS has led the market for more than twenty years with concise, practical, and current coverage of individual income tax preparation. Whittenburg and Altus-Buller's text/workbook format presents material in easy-to-digest sections with self-checks, online quizzes and activities, multiple examples, and review problems. Income Tax Fundamentals is the perfect text for a hands-on approach to tax in many class settings, including four-year colleges, community colleges, or career schools. This text is revised annually to reflect the current tax law. Tax Preparation software is included. The purpose of the Whittenburg text is to teach the most important and practical areas of the tax law to students, using a building block approach, with feedback at the end of each section. By the end of the text, the student should be able to prepare a fairly difficult return containing many of the elements seen frequently by taxpayers and tax preparers.
