The Guide is the first place practitioners look to find the answer to a federal tax question. This widely used desktop tax reference explains basic rules affecting personal and business income tax.

The 1999 U.S. Master Tax Guide contains comprehensive, timely and precise explanation of federal taxes for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates and trusts. Significant new tax developments -- including the changes brought about under the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 and the Tax and Trade Relief Extension Act of 1998 -- are conveniently highlighted and concisely explained for quick reference and understanding, along with new rules established by court decisions and the IRS.

The 1999 Guide also includes numerous time-saving features, such as a Quick Tax Facts card, a tax calendar, taxpayer-specific return flowcharts, lists of average itemized deductions, selected depreciation tables, rate tables and checklists of income, deduction and medical expense items. These features help users quickly and easily determine how particular tax items and situations should be treated.

The CCH 1999 U.S. Master Tax Guide is available as a 720-page, softbound or hardcover book, and in searchable electronic forms such as CCH CD-ROM and CCH Tax Research Internet NetWork.
