Introduction to 2011 tax facts on investments.
Welcome to the 2011 edition of Tax Facts on Investments! We have new content analyzing and exploring the major statutes that have become law over the past year--including the Dodd-Frank-Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010--as well as the most significant recent Internal Revenue Service pronouncements relevant to your business. In addition, you will find vast changes to the format of this book from prior versions--all of which are intended to make it easier for you to use.
We have reorganized the content and restructured the whole book, taking a practical and commonsense approach. It now begins with federal income taxation questions and answers, before moving into questions about the most important subjects you deal with on a daily basis, from stocks, options, futures, and bonds to investments in real estate and oil and gas, to equipment leasing, and charitable gifts.
You also will find a much expanded version of both the Table of Contents and the Index, which will help point you to the particular questions and answers that interest you. The text is "cleaner," with fewer distracting subheads and other extraneous material, and in a larger, more readable font size.
Please keep in mind, too, that updated information on tax law changes will be available as they occur for all subscribers at www.TaxFactsUpdates.com. Changes throughout the year--including revenue rulings, case law decisions, and legislative and regulatory activity--are available through subscription to our online tax service, Tax Facts Online. Tax Facts News, a monthly newsletter, rounds out the suite of Tax Facts publications.
Tax Facts on Insurance & Employee Benefits
The 2011 edition of the companion book, Tax Facts on Insurance & Employee Benefits, also contains significant revisions and updating. One thing you will notice right away is that the book is now in two separate volumes. As always, it covers the federal income, estate and gift taxation of everything from life insurance and health insurance to annuities, cafeteria plans, and pension and profit sharing plans.
