The second edition of Taxation and Business Planning for Real Estate Transactions continues its focus on problem-based learning with an emphasis on helping students to become practice-ready. The new edition continues to provide commentary and primary-source materials on foundational and advance topics in real estate transactions. The materials include materials covering both tax and non-tax issues that arise in planning for real estate transactions. The new edition includes updates to reflect statutory and regulatory changes and cases that have been decided since the first edition. It also includes new chapters on foreign investment in U.S. real property and real estate investment trusts.
In addition, multiple "client files" will accompany the book, beginning in the spring of 2018. These client files create a real-world complex transaction, along with the supporting materials (such as financial statements and deal documents) that attorneys often encounter in practice. By adopting both the book and a client file, professors provide students an opportunity to work on problems that are typical in a real-estate tax practice. A sample of the client file will be available for review in January of 2018.
