CCH Analysis of Top Tax Issues for 2002, covering tax law
developments through 2001, sorts out the flow of tax events and trends
in the past year into an easy-to-use guide that focuses on the most
important issues affecting tax compliance and tax planning. The
emphasis is on in-depth analysis of significant developments – from
major legislation and Supreme Court decisions to letter rulings –
many of which are too recent to be reflected in IRS publications, or
too controversial to be included on IRS forms or instructions.
Legislation, 9/11 Relief, IRS Losses and More
Appropriately for a year that saw tax legislation of exceptional
scope, Top Tax Issues begins with an analysis of the Economic
Growth and Tax Reform Reconciliation Act and the USA Patriot Act of
2001, highlighting the provisions of the Act that apply to 2001 and
Tax relief from the September 11 tragedies is treated in a separate
chapter, detailing the many types of relief that have been made
available through legislation and administrative action.
A special section reviews all significant court cases during 2001
in which the IRS lost – important for planning future transactions
and critical in deciding how an item should be reflected on a tax
The IRS assault on tax shelters, the INDOPCO capitalization
controversy, changing rules for IRA distributions developing
technology as it relates to current tax issues and continuing IRS
reorganization all receive chapter-length treatment.
A chapter on estate planning in light of 2001 legislation is
especially full of insightful commentary and practice tips. A chapter
on compensation issues and trends features a careful,
circuit-by-circuit analysis of the factors applied in deciding whether
compensation is "reasonable," an examination of emerging
trends in the use of stock options and an analysis of split-dollar and
other insurance-based compensation practices.
A final chapter highlights developments in areas ranging from
accounting methods to innocent spouse relief which are not part of
larger trends, thus far, but which are significant in that they
reflect a change in an IRS position, the resolution of an issue by the
Supreme Court or because they offer a new way to solve a tax problem.

practitioners that their clients will not miss out on new tax
opportunities and will not be caught unaware by significant brewing
controversies. It brings in-depth analysis of those issues that a tax
practitioner needs to know.
