Researching Federal Income Tax Law

 

_____________________________________________________________

Introduction

 

Researching federal income tax law involves using a variety of sources and can be approached using various methods. Legal research by tax practitioners should, include becoming familiar with the Internal Revenue Code to the extent of at least being able to locate relevant code sections. After obtaining the appropriate code section, it is important to be able to find any corresponding treasury regulations that have been issued for the particular code section for further guidance. Case law can interpret the code, and administrative decisions can also be helpful but vary with respect to authority depending on the type of document. Documents that are intended for release to the public, such as Revenue Rulings or Revenue Procedures, are usually binding whereas documents that are available because of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) are usually non authoritative. Those researching in the area of tax law may find it more useful to use secondary sources such as treatises, handbooks, and practice guides in order to get an overview of a specialized area of tax. However, tax practitioners must be able to master using the primary sources including the code, regulations, case law, rulings and procedures, and administrative decisions in order to effectively research federal income tax law.

___________________________________________________________

Primary Sources

 

A. Internal Revenue Code

 

The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) is a compilation of tax statutes arranged by subject and is located under title 26 of the United States Code (U.S.C.). The Code is the foundation of all tax law and is the most authoritative source. The code is not very popular given that it is very difficult to interpret and use.

 

  • United States Code (U.S.C.) Title 26                                                   

(KF62.A2)

  • United States Code Annotated (U.S.C.A.) Title 26                              

(KF62.U5)            

  • United States Code Service (U.S.C.S.) Title 26                                   

(KF62.U6)

  • Internal Revenue Code (West, published annually)                                               

        (KF6276.526.A19I57)

 

B. Treasury Regulations

 

Treasury Regulations are designed to interpret the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). They are issued by the Department of Treasury with the intent of providing guidance to the code. Final Treasury Regulations are codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and announced in the Federal Register as Treasury Decisions. Treasury Decisions are also announced in the Internal Revenue Bulletin/Cumulative Bulletin.

 

1. There are three types of regulations

 

Proposed: Treasury Regulations typically go through a minimum 30 day notice and comment period. During this period professional organizations including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the American Bar Association (ABA) can review the proposed regulations and make comments and suggestions for changes. Proposed regulations are not considered to be binding until they are finalized.

 

Final: Final regulations are authoritative as long as they are “reasonable and consistent interpretations” of the code. Once final regulations are issued, they are announced in the Federal Register and codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The CFR is also available from the Government Printing Office’s new Federal Digital System (FDsys) at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/. 

 

Temporary: Temporary Regulations are regulations that are issued for a maximum period of three years. During this three year period the regulations are as authoritative as the final regulations.

 

2. Using the Treasury Regulations with the Internal Revenue Code

 

Given the fact that the Treasury Regulations are designed to interpret the Internal Revenue Code, they are issued in conjunction with the code. Consequently, almost every section of the code has at least one corresponding treasury regulation that is issued for that specific code section. Therefore, it is important to find the relevant code section first and then find the treasury regulations that were issued and look at both the code section and regulations together.

 

3. Finding the Treasury Regulations

 

The final, temporary, and proposed regulations are first announced in the Federal Register. The final and temporary regulations are listed as Treasury Decisions (T.D.s) in the Internal Revenue Bulletin (IRB), a weekly newsletter issued by the Internal Revenue Service and eventually compiled into the Cumulative Bulletin semi-annually. The final and temporary regulations are codified in the Code of Federal Regulations.

 

The following chart will provide information on where to locate the regulations:

C. Case Law

 

Looking at case law is very important in tax research, given that there are issues that the code and regulations may not have adequately addressed. Tax cases can originate from three different courts, including the U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. District Court, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Most cases are filed in the U.S. Tax Court, given the fact that any disputed amount between the IRS and the individual taxpayer does not have to be paid until the matter is resolved. Should the taxpayer decide to file with the other two courts any disputed amount owed would have to be satisfied prior to filing with the court. Tax cases are filed with the U.S. District Court because it provides the right to a jury trial, whereas the U.S. Tax Court does not provide this. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims is the court where tax cases are least likely to be filed given that it does not provide the right to a jury trial and disputed amounts must be settled prior to filing with the court. Regardless of court of origin, it is important to remember that tax cases can be appealed to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and eventually the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

1. Types of Tax Court Cases

 

Regular Tax Court Decisions

 

These decisions deal with substantive tax matters, usually where there is a dispute between the IRS and the taxpayer regarding the code. This is often an area that has not been addressed by the courts.

 

Tax Court Memorandum Decisions

 

These are cases where there is no disagreement about the law, but there is a dispute between the Internal Revenue Service and the taxpayer with respect to factual issues.

 

Tax Court Summary Opinions

 

These are small cases (involving less than $10,000) under IRC § 7463(b). These began in 2001 are all available at http://www.ustaxcourt.gov/

D. Administrative Decisions

 

In addition to the statutes, regulations, and case law there are a number of administrative materials available from the IRS that a tax practitioner will need to utilize. The Revenue Rulings and Procedures will often refer to issues not adequately addressed by the code, regulations, or case law. While some of these materials including the IRS announcements and notices are purposely made available to the public, other materials are only accessible because of the Freedom of Information Act. Researching online databases is the best method of finding many of these materials.
